Opta guru Duncan Alexander tweeted an incredible stat following Manchester City’s defeat to Wolves last night.
Despite holding a 2-0 lead, Nuno’s team fought valiantly against the ten men to come back and win 3-2 – with Claudio Bravo conceding three following Ederson’s red-card.
It turns out the Chilean has actually let in more goals this term than Alisson – despite playing eight more matches!
for those asking, 10 apps for Alisson (2 incomplete) and 2 for Bravo (1 incomplete)

Alisson has let in five, but Bravo has let in six – three against us last month and three last night at the Molineux!
And remember, when Alisson was out of action, Adrian played eight games for Liverpool in the Premier League – and our record in those were flawless – winning all.
City have had injuries to some of their best players, but so have we. The difference is, when our first-team stars have been absent, our backups have performed admirably.
Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez have been excellent without Joel Matip. The aforementioned Adrian played well above himself – and now Jordan Henderson has been simply world-class without the injured Fabinho.
