City had the better players and roster, but Wolves was the better team today.
Gabby Agbonlahor weighs in on Nathan Ake for Manchester City’s match against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Many City players struggled, and one player that former Aston Villa striker and talkSPORT analyst Gabby Agbonlahor believes was “poor” is Nathan Ake.
On talkSPORT (5:48pm, September 30, 2023), Agbonlahor stated, “Ake was poor.”
Agbonlahor is correct.
Ake played one of his worst outings for City in recent memory, in my opinion.
Right wingers are usually very difficult to stop for the defender.
But Pedro Neto performed admirably against him.
Ake was caught off guard for Wolves’ first goal.
The defender could have done better for the Wanderers’ second goal.
Manchester City will recover.
Manchester City will recover, I am convinced.
Manager Pep Guardiola will see to it.
City were defeated by Newcastle United in the EFL Cup in midweek, and they were defeated again today by Wolves.
The Citizens will face RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday, followed by Arsenal in the Premier League the following week.
I predict City will defeat Leipzig and then make life difficult for Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.
City remain at the top of the Premier League table, and the defending champions remain, in my opinion, the favourites to win the title this season.
