STREAM LIVE MAN CITY vs WOLVES – LINK

Wolves have played well against the reigning Premier League champions and current table-topping Citizens in recent seasons, though Man City swept the season series in 2020-21.

Wolves swept the previous season series and took a point off City the prior year, and will hope to collect another good result on Saturday. Wolves have slipped six points off the top four and are 14 points behind first-place Man City.

City has been stacking wins in the Premier League and leads Liverpool by a point and Chelsea by two, but lost to RB Leipzig at midweek in a meaningless UCL match despite playing a pretty strong lineup.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Man City vs Wolves.

Prediction

Wolves’ midfield is as prepared as any to deal with Manchester City’s maestros in the middle, and Ruben Neves would fit neatly into a Pep Guardiola team (although he’d need to be taught a bit more patience in unleashing his cannon balls). But City sees first place as a destination and will continue to build on its good form while Wolves miss Willy Boly, Pedro Neto,and perhaps Conor Coady. Man City 2-1 Wolves.
