Wolves boss Mick McCarthy says Manchester City are capable of winning the Premiership this season after yesterday's defeat.
Earlier this week, ex-City defender McCarthy appeared to indicate City could not win the title this time around.
"I didn't say they couldn't win it, I said I didn't think they would. There is a difference," he countered.
"If they carve out as many chances as they did today, brilliant. If they let everybody else carve out as many as we did, it is different.
"I can't say we deserved to take something out of the game. That would be barmy because they had so many opportunities. But we nearly did."
