Manchester City vs Wolverhampton Match Preview
Manchester City have outclassed Burton Albion (9-0) in League Cup on Wednesday, as De Bruyne, Gabriel Jesus (x4), Zinchenko, Foden, Walker, and Mahrez all made it on the scoresheet securing their fourth win in a row ahead of a return to Premier League with a home clash against Wolverhampton.
Citizens have beaten Southampton (1-3), Liverpool (2-1), and Rotherham United (7-0) beforehand and showed off in the final third on all of the occasions, even without Sergio Aguero who is to make a return to the pitch on Monday – after missing out on their Cup outings with the flu.
Wolverhampton have seen even more of a pick-me-up recently, though, and they shocked Liverpool (2-1) in FA Cup as they added to their unpredictable spell of form after beating Tottenham (1-3) and suffering a 0-2 home loss to Crystal Palace in late December and early January, respectively.
Wolves have proven themselves a very tough side to beat on the road more than once too, holding off Arsenal (1-1) and Fulham (1-1), beating Newcastle (1-2) and only suffering a 2-1 loss at Cardiff in four trips beforehand. Nuno Espirito Santo will want to build on those positives and although causing an upset will be a tough task, we do see them motivated to make it happen.
Man City come off as the obvious favourites to bag the points but we don’t feel it will be smooth sailing against the Wolves now either, as we stick our necks out for Asian Handicap – Wolves to win +1.5 at 6/5 with Unibet.
Indeed, they have been scoring numbers of goals and proven their character on the road lately, which promises a good challenge on Monday. With that in mind, we feel going for a Yes on Both teams to score comes as the best approach to the fixture at 5/4 with Coral.
