Everything pointed to Man City extending their incredible run of wins to 21 games as they dominated Wolves tonight, but we all know how fragile a 1-0 lead can be.
City have had most of the ball and Wolves had barely looked like posing an attacking threat, but a set-piece always gives you a chance and Conor Coady has just come up with an unlikely equaliser:
Wolves have their equaliser! ?

City still have plenty of time to find another goal but Wolves are always a huge threat on the counter attack, so this could get interesting if it stays 1-1 going into the final minutes.

This stat has also emerged in the aftermath of the goal, and it shows how unlikely Coady was as a goal scorer in this game:
1 – Conor Coady has scored his first ever Premier League goal on what is his 103rd appearance – it was also the first shot on target in his PL career (third shot overall). Unlikely. pic.twitter.com/GUqn3W35s6
