Let down badly by defence for Milijas' scrappy goal. Tried his best to redeem situation but had little chance.
Belgian bettered Kolo Toure but wasn't at his best. Despite size advantage, didn't always hold off Wolves strikers.
No one can yet lay claim to City's problem right-back spot. Argentine struggled to keep lid on Fletcher and Hunt. Wasteful when bombed on.
Brilliant block on Jarvis shot prevented City falling two behind. Teamed up with Tevez on left flank to cause Wolves problems.
Made up for appalling clearance for Milijas' goal with effort of his own on the back post. Still not dominant enough in the air and floundered in face of Doyle's threat. Came off ealrier in second half with injury for Lescott.
Kept it simple and tried to plug gaps at back. Showed a welcome spring of step in second half. Drifted across to left wing when Tevez moved inside.

The fighting spirit absent since the Hatem Ben Arfa controversy still hasn't re-emerged. Made to look a little in-effective against Wolves' lesser lights in first half. Couldn't keep out Zubar header on goal line.
Silent in first half but powerful in second. The Ivorian started the move for his goal on the edge of his own box and slotted home a Dzeko pass.
Full of tricks and invention. Forced save from Hennessey in opening period and had an admittedly peripheral role in Tevez's wonderful strike. Removed for Silva.
Bosnian put in a solid, but not spectacular, debut. Highlight was his cute pass to Yaya Toure for the Ivorian's goal. Used size to hold off defenders but looked slow when he tried to stretch legs.
Argentine's genius was pivotal for City today. His first goal was from the highest order as he jinked past three Wolves defenders. Header was crucial to securing the three points. Given heroes reception when taken off for Milner.
Wales international fell victim to City's vibrant start to the second half. Had no chance with any of the goals.
Manned the right-hand side well in first half and forced Tevez to drift inside. This caused chaos in second half as Argentine inspired a rout. Gave team hope with late header.
Mixed it with Dzeko and had the pace to outstrip him when he tried to play on the floor. Rough edges apparent in lethal second period for hosts.
Refused to cower in the face of the big money Bosnian he faced. Won more than fair share of headers. Troubled on floor, however, and couldn't prevent Tevez running rampant.
Didn't fill in well for suspended Elokobi. Couldn't keep lid on Johnson. Replaced by Mouyokolo after damage had been done.
Bundle of energy as ever. Quick-thinking was paramount in move that led to Milijas goal.
Serb put Wolves ahead on the second go after a goal-line scramble. Typically, never scared to shoot. Tired in second half and was over-run.
Should have done better when he had time and space to shoot in the box but could only find Kolarov's legs. Kept the Serbian pegged back and added his cross led to the scramble for Milijas' goal. Substituted for Mujangi Bia.
Ex-Manchester United man came in for the injured Foley in central midfield. Fought hard and unlucky to see Kolo Toure's shot go through his legs.
Irishman's hold up play is vital to Wolves. Regularly fended off attentions of City centre-backs. Calmly scored penalty after floored by Lescott. Usual selfless performance.
Caused Zabaleta problems when drifted out wide and was a thorn in City's side in the air. Wasted glorious chance to cross in early stages of game but had plenty of composure when he later picked out Jarvis. Made way for returning captain Henry.

Came on in 51st minute for Kolo Toure. Ex-Wolves player game old team a gift when he bundled over Doyle in penalty box.
