Manchester City vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Manchester City came up with two remarkable scores to find their winning touch once again. The latest success for City was a 9-0 victory over Burton Albion in the first leg of the League Cup semifinals. The match witnessed Gabriel Jesus coming up with four goals. The game was preceded by a 7-0 win over Rotherham United. Wolves picked up a remarkable 2-1 home victory over Liverpool in the third round of the FA Cup to claim a major scalp. Nuno’s decision to name a strong line-up was rewarded with Raul Jimenez scoring the opener in the 38th minute. Even though Divock Origi was able to equalise just after the break, Ruben Neves was able to put Wolves back in front.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Manchester City were held to a draw by Wolves earlier in the campaign. This was the second consecutive draw between the two teams, but City are in a different mindset coming into the game. After two huge victories, City’s forward line up – and probably the entire team – will be on a high. Even if Wolves try to sit back and hit on the counter-attack, I would back City to score over 3.5 goals.

Wolves have the ability to hit on the counter-attack and City have not been defensively solid this season. The availability of Fernandinho is a game changer for the club and I would back a clean sheet for the home team.

Manchester City Preview

Manchester City have been going through an amazing streak over the last few matches. The massive victory over Liverpool has infused them with confidence about taking on the Premier League title once again. City looked down and out after falling seven points behind the Reds, but a four-point deficit to the top will give a great deal of confidence. City have also been able to benefit from Gabriel Jesus managing to find a sweet run of form over the last few weeks. Earlier in the campaign, the Brazilian was struggling to be an apt replacement for Sergio Aguero in the absence of the Argentine.

Manchester City Team News

Sergio Aguero is a doubt for the match with a flu. Benjamin Mendy (meniscus), Claudio Bravo (Achilles tendon), and Marlos Moreno (groin) are unavailable for City.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview

Wolves were able to pick up two big victories in the last few matches. Nuno has not altered his team’s philosophy and style of play irrespective of the opponents. Even though there is little change to the play, Wolves have been able to win hearts by picking up positive results. Yet, the team needs more consistency to the play and this would ensure a top half finish for the Midlands team. Wolves have claimed a couple of big scalps and the team needs only a couple of points in order to hit the seventh place in the league table.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

There are no injury or suspension worries for Wolves coming into the game.
