Manchester City on a master class: phenomenal goal show by Kevin de Bruyne

On Tuesday, Liverpool are in the running for the title in the English Premier League. But just one day later, BVB superstar Erling Haaland's new club countered the attack. With a 5-1 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers, Manchester City put the old gap back on track two games before the end of the season.

Defending champions Manchester City have maintained their three-point lead over pursuers Liverpool after beating Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League. Mainly thanks to the outstanding Kevin De Bruyne, who scored four times for coach Pep Guardiola's team, Man City outclassed the Wolves 5-1 (3-1) on Wednesday evening.

Former Wolfsburg player De Bruyne gave Man City the lead in the first half with his hat-trick (7th minute/16th/24th). The interim equalizer by Leander Dendoncker (11th) only briefly gave the hosts hope. De Bruyne scored again for City in the 60th minute, Raheem Sterling scored the final (84'). With two games to go before the end of the season, the Citizens also have a significantly better goal difference (72) than Liverpool (65).

Chelsea FC also celebrated an important away win after three games without a win. The Londoners prevailed 3-0 (1-0) at Leeds United and, third in the table, are still on course towards qualifying for the Champions League. Mason Mount (4th minute), Christian Pulisic (55th) and Romelu Lukaku (83rd) scored in the stadium on Elland Road for the Blues coached by Thomas Tuchel.

The hosts, who are in danger of relegation - with former Leipzig coach Jesse Marsch - had to play for more than an hour because Leeds professional Daniel James saw the red card for a foul after 24 minutes. Due to a medical emergency in the audience, the game was interrupted for a few minutes in the first half.

Chelsea, third in the table, have two games to go before the end of the season and are eight points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who have played one game in hand. Spurs welcome arch-rivals Arsenal, who are currently fourth, in the London derby on Thursday evening. Leeds are now in a relegation zone in 18th.
