|Gary Neville on Manchester City's new challenge as others take note of Wolves' draw with Premier League champions
sbo128 When you come into the Premier League you've got players stepping up a level and players coming in from outside, who haven't played at that level before. It's just about removing some of those doubts of 'can we do it?' Today will have gone some way to doing that.
They looked well-drilled, they looked well-coached, they had an idea about how to approach the game in attack and defence, it was a really good performance from start to finish. Man City are the most difficult team to play against in this league, 99 per cent of the teams they play don't lay a glove on them, let alone create chances.
Wolves created big moments of concern, and Kompany and Aymeric Laporte will know they've been in a game. It forced a slight adaptation of the system from Pep Guardiola, pulling Kyle Walker inside.It's far too early to read into sbo128 it, but if you're a team playing against Man City in the next few weeks you would look at this game a lot. What Wolves have been is good in attack and defence, and obviously that's key to every single game but intent and approach is everything.
Far too many teams have just lived for a set piece or for one counter-attack, rather than try to do something every time Man City are on the ball. Wolves will have set something up in terms of the shape, the 5-4-1 caused problems, sbo128 and teams might look at that.At United, we found teams who caused us difficulties, and other teams would then copy that in the coming weeks. That's what City will face - other teams will change their shape to face them.
