Wolves 0 Man City 2: Premier League title is Mancini's to lose as hosts are relegated
16:50 GMT, 22 April 2012
Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri ensured Manchester City took advantage of Manchester United's earlier slip to close the gap at the top of the Barclays Premier League – and send Wolves down in the process.
After United were held to a 4-4 draw by Everton at Old Trafford earlier on Sunday, the title-race initiative was handed to Roberto Mancini's side.
And City made sure they didn't follow suit as a goal in each half took the visitors to within three points of United ahead of the crucial Manchester derby next Monday.
The result also condemned Wolves to the Championship.
