The Citizens collected a 3-1 win at Everton last weekend to move on back to back wins. They were challenged in the first half of that fixture, but then pulled away. The Citizens have scored at least two goals in all league fixtures played this season and have tallied up eleven of them in their last two alone. Their success over Everton last weekend was their 19th win in their last 21 league games. The Citizens have scored at least two goals in each of their last eight.
While they have come under some pressure defensively this season, Man City have taken a clean sheet in five of their last six home games. Over 2.5 goals has cropped up in each of the Citizens’ last eight league fixtures. The Citizens are W2 D1 at home in the league this season, scoring twelve unanswered goals in their last two there. There is an injury doubt over Kevin de Bruyne for this one. City will be defending an eight-match undefeated run against Wolves in all competitions.
City have gone unbeaten in eight games against Wolves
Manchester City took four points against Wolves last season
The Citizens have won four of the last five EPL meetings with Wolves (D1)
Just one of the last four meetings in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals
Wolves landed their first league win of the campaign last weekend with a 2-0 home success over the ailing Watford. That was a massive boost for Wolves, who seem to be struggling to balance domestic and European action this season. The win over Watford leaves Wolves at W1 D3 L2 this season. They have managed only two points out on the road, those coming in draws at Leicester and Crystal Palace.
It has been four goals scored by them on their top-flight travels this season. Home and away combined, seven of the nine goals that Wolves have scored this season have come in the second half of matches. They are currently sitting on a six-match scoring streak. Not only is this one of the toughest away games in the Premier League, But Wolves have also only collected one victory in their last ten away games in the league.
Manchester City should be driving towards three points in this one. The attacking threat of Wolves hasn’t quite materialized this season on the domestic front. This is a game which they may just have to scratch off. Home win.
