#PepOut trends on Twitter after Manchester City's 2-0 defeat to Wolves

Pep Guardiola during Man City 0-2 Wolves

Manchester City are in a small crisis at the moment.

They were the favourites to win the Premier League for the third consecutive season but things have't gone their way so far this season.

They dropped points at the Etihad against Tottenham in August, before losing to Norwich at Carrow Road a month later.

And they tasted defeat for the second time this season on Sunday in a shock defeat to Wolves.

Wolves had won once in the league before today's game. It was expected City would easily dispatch of them at home.

But they failed to break down a resilient away side.

And Pep Guardiola's side were caught napping on two occasions. Adama Traore scored a late brace as Wolves caught City on the counter.

City remain in second but are now a massive eight points behind Liverpool in the race for the title.

It may be time to start panicking for Guardiola.

Guardiola is the best manager in the world but City are in trouble at the moment. They are without Aymeric Laporte in defence and his absence is hurting them.

And, incredibly, after the result #PepOut was actually trending on Twitter.


It seems a lot of football fans in general have tweeted it as a joke, as has Gary Lineker.

But it seems ridiculous that a handful of City fans actually want Guardiola out.

He is without doubt the best manager in the world and that hasn't changed after a few months of the 2019/20 season.

Guardiola admitted his side were nervous following the game.

“It's a lot of points. They haven’t dropped any points, for many circumstances. But it's better for us not to think that one team is eight points ahead," he said, per the Mirror.

“It was a bad day. But sometimes it happens.

“We started quite well, but after we conceded two situations in our build-up, where it's impossible to defend, we got a little bit nervous.

“We controlled them better in the second half but at the end, with us attacking and people up front, we lost balls in positions where it's so difficult and they were clinical.

“Before that we hit the post and we had actions, but the way we played was not good. It was not a good day, we didn't play good.

“It sometimes happens. We spoke about this: 'Come on guys, a lot of games to play, we did it and we're going to do it again'.

“We lost to a good team that were really well-organised, good physicality, strong in the air and so fast on the counter-attack. We knew it."
