Wolves vs Man City Summary
In a story of David vs Goliath, Wolves have beat the Goliath known as Manchester City in the last three meetings they have had. Molineaux has been a hard place to play for sides inside the top 6 in the past few seasons, however, you can never rule this Manchester City side out of any game.
Man City has multiple attacking playmakers such as Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne available for selection. Despite this, the threat of Raul Jimenez and the speedy Adama Traore will cause issues as usual for a Man City defence featuring new signing Nathan Ake.
Wolves have become somewhat known for being the giant killers in the Premier League, under the lights at Molineaux we could see another upset against the Mancunians. But with Pep Guardiola known for his tactical genius, we can see the citizens pulling something out of the bag.
Wolves Team News and Form
Domestically last season, Wolves have had yet another good season finishing in 7th place and clinching European football once more next season. In the Europa League, Wolves have scored 18 goals this campaign, giving them average goals scored per game of 2.0. Their home record this season has seen them pick up on average 1.63 points per game, giving them a home advantage of +6%.
On average, Wolves conceded one goal per game which is good considering they average 2 goals per game, allowing them to outscore opponents in this competition. Their record in the Europa League over the past 5 games has seen them win two games, draw two, and lost just once.
With players such as Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore, Wolves have been able to use their forwards to win games on their own. This is the make-up of a team that might go all the way. Wolves have managed two or more goals in 55% of their games, a brilliant return.
Man City Team News and Form
Domestically Man City didn’t live up to the expectations they’ve set for themselves over the past few years, finishing 2nd, 18 points behind winners, Liverpool. Man City finished the year with 81 points and a goal difference of 67, the highest number in the Premier League last season.
In the Premier League, City has won 68% of all games they played last season, a number that ranks highly among Europe’s elite clubs. Man City has managed to bring in some talented players such as Ferran Torres to further boost their attacking options, so it should be a recipe for a lot of goals this season.
Sergio Aguero is in a race against time to be fit to play the game, coming back from a knee injury. Meaning Brazilian hotshot Gabriel Jesus could lead the line against Wolves.
