Premier League Highlights – Friday 27 December 2019

One match on the evening of Friday 27 December, which was the top half clash of Wolves at home to Manchester City.

City watched as the pretenders to their crown, Liverpool, took apart 2016 champions Leicester 4-0 on Boxing Day, so they would have been looking for a win from this one.

Full highlights are below, from Sky Sports football’s YouTube channel.

Wolves v Man City (3-2)

This match had the lot… City went down to 10 men, for a correct call, after their keeper made a goal-preventing foul, before Sterling missed a penalty, had it saved, was awarded a retake… had that saved, but banged in the rebound.

They made it 2-0 with 10 men, and many will have thought the title challenge was still on.

Those people should have remembered Wolves are tenacious and spirited opponents, though, and the last 35 minutes of this match were a thing to behold, as the men in gold staged a phenomenal comeback.

Armand Traore got them underway with a smart strike, before Jimenez looked to have earned a point with around 10 minutes remaining… only for Doherty to dance through and coolly slot home from just inside the box to take all three.

Fantastic stuff. This is why the Premier League can claim to be the best in the world.
