Manchester City have returned to the top of the Premier League table after thrashing Wolves 5-1 on Wednesday night.

They lead second-placed Liverpool with three points, and only two games are left before the wrap of the season.

The Pep Guardiola side now need only four points from their final two fixtures to ensure they will finish above Liverpool and win their fourth title in five seasons.

Kevin de Bruyne scored four goals for the visitors and Raheem Sterling scored one while hosts Wolves managed a goal through Leander Dendoncker.
