Wolves – Manchester City
It’s time for the champion Manchester City to play its third game since the beginning of the new season in the Premier League. So far Pep Guardiola’s boys are flawless – two wins from two games played, 8 goals scored and just one goal conceded. Now the Cityzens are going to face Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium.
City didn’t face any problems in beating Arsenal at the Emirates in the first round of the league. In the next game the champions scored six times against Huddersfield Town at home, showing their firepower. Sergio Aguero was especially effective in this game, scoring a hattrick for his team’s win.
Wolverhampton are one of the newcomers in the league this season. The Wolves started the campaign with a draw against Everton at home, but this was followed by 0-2 loss during the visit to Leicester City. It’s clear that Nuno Santo’s team will fight for its survival in the league this season. If they can do better and maybe replicate Burnley’s performance from the previous campaign, then it’d be even better for them.
Last season these two teams met once for the Carabao Cup. Wolves caused some serious problems to City at the Etihad Stadium. The Cityzens needed to win on penalties in order to eliminate their opponents. This proves that Wolves won’t give up without a fight, especially at home ground.
Wolves can’t use the injured Ivan Cavaleiro, while Leander Dendoncker will have a late fitness test in order to see if he can play.
Manchester City is without the influental midfielder Kevin De Bruyne, while Danilo and Claudio Bravo are also unavaliable for Pep Guardiola’s team.
This is our take on the Premier League game between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester City at the Molineux. We think that City are the favourites here, but it won’t be easy for them.
