Manchester City is now on the right course to winning a back-to-back Premier League title after they thrashed Wolves 5-1 at Molineux on Wednesday, thanks to Kevin Debruyne's four goals.

The cityzens moved three points clear of Liverpool with two games to play and boosted their goal difference to seven superior to the Reds.

Wednesday's win meant that city need just four points from Sunday's trip to West Ham and the visit of Aston Villa on the final day of the season to be crowned champions for the fourth time in five years.

The visitors, though, were without three key defenders in Kyle Walker, John Stones, and Ruben Dias through injury and it showed.

Aymeric Laporte had to make a desperate last-ditch challenge to deny Chiquinho before Wolves leveled on 11 minutes.

Pedro Neto was allowed to gallop clear into the City box and picked out Leander Dendoncker to slot past Ederson.

Parity only lasted another five minutes as De Bruyne was both creator and executioner of City's second, and third sealing a hat trick in 24 minutes.

Since a 2-2 draw with Liverpool left the title race still on a knife-edge last month, City have scored 23 goals in five games.

Foden hit the post and Sterling missed a sitter with the goal gaping at the back post.

But he could not miss another open goal when Joao Cancelo's deflected cross fell his way six minutes from time.

De Bruyne nearly had time for a fifth of his own in the final minute as he curled off the post.

However, another five-star performance was more than enough for City to give Liverpool little sign of encouragement they will cede ground down the home straight.
