Pep Guardiola blamed player nerves for Manchester City's 2-0 home loss to Wolves.
"It was a bad day, sometimes it happens. We started quite well and after we conceded two situations in our build-up where it's impossible to defend, we got a little bit nervous," said Guardiola.
City are now 8 points behind league leaders Liverpool.
Guardiola added that it is still early in the title race.
"But the distance is big. I know that. Liverpool is not dropping points. But we are in October, still a lot of games."
