Manchester City start their title campaign on Monday against a team that beat them home and away last season. City travel to Molineux and for them to mount a serious title challenge they need to outsmart a stubborn Wolves side. 

Wolverhampton – Manchester City preview 

The hosts made a bright start to their Premier League season as they picked maximum points against Sheffield United following a 2-0 victory. Meanwhile, City were given an extended break after participating in the  Champions League upto the quarter finals where they were eliminated by Lyon. 

It has always been a tough visit for the Cityzens in their recent Premier League seasons and this trend may continue. 

Match facts 

  • In nine of Man City’s last ten matches in the Premier League, there has been more than two goals scored. 
  • Pep Guardiola’s men have been in fine form, winning their last five Premier League matches. 
  • Wolverhampton have not conceded any goal in six of their last Premier League home matches. 
  • City have kept a clean sheet in five of their last seven Premier League matches. 

Head to head 

It was a tough result for City to accept as they were beaten home and away by Wolves last season. Yes, you heard it right, Wolves beat the Citizens 2-0 at Etihad before completing a double in the return leg in a match that ended 3-2 in favour of the hosts. 

In their last six meetings, City have managed to beat Wolves once and that came way back in January 2019. 

Manchester City win

Well, City struggled at the back last season having lost Eymeric Laporte to an injury but now the defender is fit. They’ve also brought in Nathan Ake from Bournemouth meaning Guardiola will have a much better backline. 

After a disappointing season, Guardiola will take this season’s title race with lots of caution and we expect City to head back to Etihad with maximum points. 

Our pundits believe City will secure a hard fought victory and betway has given the visitors 1.52 odds to emerge the winners while 1Xbet has 1.51 for the same outcome. 

Anytime goalscorer – Gabriel Jesus

Manchester City will be without their lethal man Sergio Aguero who is expected to be on the sidelines for up to two months with an injury. With the Argentine’s absence, Gabriel Jesus will be given the mandate to lead the attack and our pundits are backing the forward to score a goal anytime. 

1xbet has given Jesus 2.15 odds to score a goal anytime while betway has 2.28 odds for the same outcome.
