Ilkay Gundogan feels Manchester City only have themselves to blame after slipping to a surprise and costly defeat against Wolves.

Adama Traore struck twice in the final 10 minutes as Wolves stunned the Premier League champions to claim a 2-0 win at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

The defeat was City’s second of the season and, although they remain second in the table, they now already trail leaders Liverpool by eight points.

It was a well-disciplined performance from the visitors, who exposed the home defence a number of times on the counter-attack, but Gundogan felt City contributed to their own downfall.

The German midfielder told the BBC: “We have lost the game because of our own mistakes, again unfortunately. It feels like we gave Wolves the three points.

“We know that all the points we have dropped this season we didn’t drop because the opponent was so much better, we dropped them because of us. We were guilty for these dropped points. That is the main part and that hurts so much.

“Even though we have created chances we didn’t score and when you concede the first goal it is difficult to come back from that.”
