City fans air their views on the hard-fought win over Mick McCarthy's Wolves.
As key a result as this ended up being (to maintain the five point lead over United), with Chelsea's defeat to Arsenal it now means City are nine points clear of Chelsea in third place. Early days of course, but a significant cushion nonetheless.

We're showing outstanding consistency, not just in collecting points but scoring as well making it 48 goals in 16 games this season. The ref didn't have the best of games which could always prove to be vital but we showed our quality.
Had the chances to be a couple up before half time. Kept plugging away despite some questionable calls from the ref; 18 fouls to 6 doesn't seem right. Great finish by Johnson to take the pressure off after the red card
Dzeko looked much more comfortable once the second goal went in and his part in the third was top class.
That has to be one of the most one-sided refereeing performances in favour of the visiting team that I have seen in the 38 years that I have been watching Manchester City, and given the level of booing from the 47,000 crowd that Stuart Attwell received at half-time, I don't believe that I am the only person to share these views.
We kept the ball well, created a number of chances and played some really nice football! Adam Johnson's goal was amazing! Good to see Balotelli keep his cool even after he was fouled and the decision was given against us!
What was most impressive about City on Saturday was the way the lads kept their composure after conceding the penalty and even went on to score a brilliant third goal despite being down to ten men.
