Sunday’s match between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester City under Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium marks the return of the Premier League to action.
This season, Wolverhampton Wanderers have not lived up to expectations and are currently 16th in the Premier League standings. Last week, the away team lost to Liverpool in the FA Cup, and they will need to get back on track in this game.
On the other hand, Manchester City is currently in second place in the league but has not performed at its best this season. In their previous match, the Cityzens staged a stunning comeback to defeat Tottenham Hotspur by a score of 4-2, and they will attempt to repeat that feat this weekend.
This weekend’s performance by Wolverhampton Wanderers will be crucial if they hope to avoid relegation this season. On paper, Manchester City appears to be the superior team, and they should be able to win this game.
Despite having a great team, Manchester City has not lived up to its potential this season. The Cityzens made significant progress this week with their comeback victory over Tottenham Hotspur, and they will need to win a lot of games to give Arsenal a run for their money.
Prediction: Manchester City 4-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
Wolverhampton Wanderers have won 49 of the 127 games they’ve played, but Manchester City has won 53 of those games. This gives Manchester City a slight advantage over Wolverhampton Wanderers. In the Premier League, Manchester City has scored 16 goals in their last five matches against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
In the Premier League, Wolverhampton Wanderers have won four of their last eight away games against Manchester City, with their most recent victory coming in 2019. Wolverhampton Wanderers have lost five of their last five Premier League matches against defending champions, with only four victories in that span. Wolverhampton Wanderers’ three red cards against Manchester City since returning to the Premier League are the most of any team in the competition.
Rico Lewis, the right defender for Man City, is the only injury concern; he left the game against Spurs in the final minutes with a minor ankle injury; In the first XI, the 18-year-old could be replaced by Kyle Walker.
John Stones and Ruben Dias, both center-backs, were able to play some on Thursday despite their respective hamstring issues and fitness issues. They will be in line to start against the Wolves, as will Manuel Akanji, Aymeric Laporte, and Nathan Ake. However, Nathan Ake may keep his place ahead of Joao Cancelo at left-back.
Phil Foden, Bernardo Silva, and Kalvin Phillips will also be trying to start after starting on the bench against Spurs, and Kevin De Bruyne, who missed Tuesday’s training session for personal reasons, will likely return to the starting lineup.
