Wolves vs Manchester City Prediction & Betting tips
For Manchester City, a new season of league football starts on Monday evening with an away game at Wolverhampton Wanderers. Last season, Manchester City relinquished a 0-2 lead in the Molineux and Pep Guardiola’s team will have to be a bit more focused on Monday evening if it wants to achieve a result at the Wolves.
Wolverhampton already has 180 minutes of football in its legs when Manchester City is the opponent in the industrial city on Monday evening. The Wolves started their new season on Monday with a 0-2 win over Sheffield United. On Thursday-evening, the team of Nuno Espírito Santo played in the Carabao Cup and Wolverhampton was immediately eliminated. In their own Molineux, Stoke City was too strong for the Wolves with 0-1. Four minutes before the final whistle, Wolverhampton had to concede the only goal of the game. The Wolves were disappointed with the premature end of the cup adventure.
As we are used to from Nuno, he does not like to rotate a lot. So the Portuguese started with a reasonably strong team against Stoke City. Four days later, almost the same players can also try against Manchester City. The question is whether Nuno is not committing too much looting on his group of players so early in the season: many footballers play their third serious game against Manchester City in a week’s time. In addition, the Wolves had a shorter vacation than they are used to due to Europa League obligations. Diogo Jota has already played his last game in the Wolverhampton shirt. The Portuguese forward makes the switch to Liverpool, while the Dutchman Ki-Jana Hoever has gone the other way. Apart from Jonny (the Portuguese has a knee injury), Wolverhampton has a fit squad for the cracker with Manchester City.
At Manchester City, they do not keep the best memories of their last game at the Molineux. On December 27 of the previous year, with Guardiola’s side still in sight of the title, Manchester City lost 3-2 to Wolverhampton. Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson received a red card in the twelfth minute, but strikingly enough, Manchester City still took a 0-2 lead due to hits from Raheem Sterling. In the final phase of the game, Wolverhampton, who had made the connection goal shortly after the break, managed to score two more times and as a result, Manchester City ran into an expensive point loss.
Fortunately for Manchester City, we are now in a new season. Unlike all other competitors, Manchester City has not yet had a league game behind its name. The Citizens were still active in the Champions League more than a month ago and were therefore given time off in the first round of the Premier League. At this Manchester City, a few things have changed compared to last season. For the first time in years, The Citizens start a season without Leroy Sané (left for Bayern Munich) and David Silva (free transfer to Real Sociedad). On the other hand, Guardiola can use Nathan Aké (AFC Bournemouth) and Ferran Torres (Valencia) this season. Aymeric Laporte and Riyad Mahrez recently tested positive for the coronavirus and are unlikely to make the full 90 minutes against Wolverhampton. Sergio Agüero has also still not recovered from his knee injury.
