D. de Vries
Wolves’ goalkeeping understudy had little chance with Johnson or Dezko’s effort but possibly could have been positioned better for Nasri’s effort
Another sloppy display at the back. Failed to come to terms with City's sharp passing.
The powerful defender failed to get to grips with City's pace and speed and should have helped out more.
The veteran defender appears to be starting to show signs of slowing down. Will be unlikely to force his way into McCarthy's first-team thoughts.
The 19-year-old endured a difficult night as he struggled to come to terms with City’s slick and incisive passing moves.
Started the match brightly but struggled to maintain his performance as the game went on as he continues to make his way back from a long-term injury lay-off.
Sharp finish for his goal, giving Pantilimon no chance, but was wasteful with a couple of dangerous looking free-kicks.
Massive chance to get his side back into the game early in the second half but completely mistimed a close range effort.
Gave Wolves something different with his pace and should have done enough to earn a start for their weekend clash.
Mick McCarthy’s main man tried to get himself into the game by throwing himself about but struggled to get into threatening positions.
Smart work in the build up to the opening goal of the match, but like a number of his team-mates faded as the game went on.
Given little chance for either of Wolves' goals and knows his opportunities will be limited with Hart in front of him
The utility man put in another solid showing at right-back and managed to get forward well at times.
The no-nonsense defender was booked early on for a crude tackle on Hunt and had to watch his tackling for the remainder of the match. Will need to curb defending as he becomes accustomed to the English game.
Lucky to get away with a handball in the early first half with the game goalless. Surged forward from his left-back spot to provide his side with an extra attacking option. The Serbian will be hoping to have done enough to displace Gael Clichy as City’s first-choice left-back
Looked rusty for Wolves goal opening goal but grew as the game went on. Guided his centre-back partner Savic through the game.
N. de Jong
Usual combative display from the Netherlands international. Covered a lot of ground and helped to break up attacks. Will be keen to regain his place in Mancini’s side, having been displaced in recent weeks.
With David Silva missing, the Frenchmen took over the mantle as City’s creative spark. Took his goal well, firing past De Vries, and managed to inject some magic into City’s play. Impressive display which will have given his manager a real selection dilemma.
Steady showing from the youngster who partnered De Jong in City’s midfield. Tired as the game went on and was replaced shortly before full-time.
Continued his fantastic recent form with a fine finish to level the game up. Played a superb through ball to Nasri to set the Frenchmen clean through for City’s third and posed a real threat through-out the game. Appears to have become a more complete footballer since regaining his place Mancini’s line-up.
Fresh from scoring twice in City’s 6-1 rout over Manchester United, the mobile forward linked up well with his team-mates. Tapped in both of his goals from close range to underline his status as a world-class fox-in-the-box.
Superb performance from the young Italian attacker, who showed some brilliant touches throughout. Unlucky not bag a goal in the first half and even more so in the second. Played a huge part in City’s fourth, which resulted in a De Vries own goal. Smart assist for Dzeko’s second.
- 1 W. Hennessey
- 14 R. Johnson
- 16 C. Berra
Found the back of the net seconds after coming on to and gave his team impetus, despite finding themselves so far behind.
- 19 A. Hammill
Came on late with the game already over but still tried to get his team-mates going.
- 9 S. Ebanks-Blake
- 12 S. Taylor
- 3 W. Bridge
Came on with just over 15 minutes remaining to replace the impressive Scapuzzi and put in a solid showing.
- 24 N. Onuoha
Came on as a late substitute and was given little time to carry on his fine form.
The much hyped 17-year-old replaced Nasri with just over 20 minutes remaining and almost got his name on the scoresheet late on.
