Kevin De Bruyne and Manchester City are approaching an 8th English league title. Under pressure after the success of Liverpool, the day before, at Aston Villa, the players of Pep Guardiola were imperial on the lawn of Wolverhampton, thanks to a quadruple from their Belgian international midfielder, dazzling this Wednesday evening (1-5). With their 27th success in 36 days, the Skyblues could be crowned at West Ham on Sunday. They would then win their 4th league title in 5 years.
Kevin De Bruyne was hungry for a goal
A manita and the place of leader: Big blue for City

The Skyblues had no time to waste, and they made it easy. Kevin De Bruyne quickly opened the scoring with a cross and surgical strike from the left, on a nice service from Bernardo Silva (0-1, 7th). However, a few minutes later, it was his Belgian compatriot Leander Dendoncker who equalized for Wolves, with a nice flat right foot on a service from Pedro Neto (1-1, 11th). But it was Manchester City’s number 17 night on Wednesday, and no one else’s. De Bruyne scored twice 5 minutes later with a deflected shot from the left in the top corner (1-2, 15th) before knocking out Wolves alone, on an individual action punctuated by an unstoppable left missile for the goalkeeper (1-3, 24th). With a welcome celebration already, for the Norwegian Erling Haaland, whose transfer to Manchester City was formalized on Tuesday.
3 points ahead for City 2 days from the end
The technical superiority of the Skyblues never allowed the Wolves to hope to return to the game. If two contentious actions (34th, 62nd) could have allowed Bruno Lage’s men to obtain a penalty, it was the defending champions who drove the point home with a 4th goal for Kevin De Bruyne. The first of the evening scored with his “good” foot, the right, on the hour mark (1-4, 60th) before Raheem Sterling, very borrowed today, saved his match and scored the last goal of the meeting after a new high quality collective sequence for Manchester City (1-5, 84th). With a goal difference which now stands at +72 and 3 points ahead of the Reds, Manchester City are getting closer to an 8th English league title, 2 days from the end. Jürgen Klopp and his family must look gray tonight.
