ESPN FC’s Steve Nicol, Shaka Hislop and Julien Laurens break down what went wrong for Man City, particularly at the back, as mistakes by the likes of Benjamin Mendy and Nicolas Otamendi led to goals for Wolves. (3:47) They also examine the VAR decisions that impacted the match and (9:42) whether City has any chance of getting something out of this season by winning the Champions League.
