Manchester City vs Wolves Prediction & Match Preview

Man City

Wolves

2 March 2021 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET Premier League Etihad Stadium

Manchester City will be aiming to extend their unbelievable winning run when they take on Wolverhampton on Tuesday evening. 

The Citizens head into the match following a 2-1 win over West Ham United where defender Stones scored the winner after 68 minutes. 

The league leaders aim to move one step closer to clinching top position in the standings, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Wolverhampton.

Since Kun Aguero failed to impress against the Hammers, Gabriel Jesus should be recalled to the starting XI, as well as Raheem Sterling, who was rested at the weekend. Defender Nathan Ake should be the only absentee in the home team. 

The Wolves have been in a fine form of late, but Man City are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the visitors than their previous rivals. 

Key attacker Raul Jimenez is a long-term absentee, with Marcal, Podence, and Boly missing the game as well.

Team News:

Man City will again be without the services of Nathan Ake through injury, but the runaway leaders are otherwise in excellent shape, meaning that Guardiola will have the luxury of making a number of changes if he wishes.

The Spaniard is expected to shuffle his pack from the West Ham clash, with Bernardo Silva, Raheem Sterling, Joao Cancelo, Rodri and Phil Foden all in line to return.

Sergio Aguero is expected to drop out, having failed to make his mark against the Hammers, but Gabriel Jesus might have to accept a spot on the bench once again with Sterling potentially going through the middle.

As for Wolves, Fernando Marcal, Willy Boly, Raul Jimenez and Daniel Podence are again absent for the trip to the Etihad Stadium.

Nuno could ultimately decide to keep faith with the XI that started against Newcastle on Saturday, with Adama Traore and Pedro Neto again joining Willian Jose as part of a front three.

Fabio Silva and Rayan Ait-Nouri are the two players pushing hardest to be involved from the start after featuring off the bench on Saturday, but Jonny Castro should keep his spot as the left-sided wing-back.

Manchester City possible starting lineup:
Ederson; Cancelo, Stones, Dias, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan; Bernardo, Sterling, Foden

Wolverhampton Wanderers possible starting lineup:
Patricio; Dendoncker, Coady, Saiss; Semedo, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny; Traore, Willian Jose, Neto
