Manchester City vs Wolves

, KO: 17:30 May 4, 2024, Etihad Stadium
Wolves

MANCHESTER CITY will endeavour to take another step towards retaining their Premier League crown when they entertain Wolves at the Etihad on Saturday evening.

It would now appear to be a two-horse race between City and Arsenal for the title, with Liverpool looking out of contention after winning just one of their last four matches.

While Pep Guardiola's side are currently sitting in second spot, their destiny is still in their own hands as they aim to pip Arsenal to the Premier League post.

Last time out, Man City kept up the pressure on the table-topping Gunners by putting in a professional performance to win 2-0 at Nottingham Forest.

As for Wolves, they arrested their recent slump in form by edging out Luton 2-1 at Molineux last weekend.

That morale-boosting victory has put Gary O’Neil’s side back in the mix for a top-half finish, though it's going to take a herculean effort from them to stop Man City on Saturday.

How the bookies view it: Sky Blue juggernaut to roll on

Understandably, Man City are massive 1/9 (Bet 365) favourites as they set out to make it six Premier League wins on the spin.

Wolves are a whopping 30/1 (UniBet) to emerge from the Etihad victorious, while the draw is also deemed improbable at a towering 10/1 (PaddyPower).

Head to head: Old Gold going for double

One of Man City’s three Premier League defeats this season came against Wolves in September's reverse fixture, with O’Neil’s men running out 2-1 winners.

City had triumphed in each of the six meetings between the pair prior to that stumble at Molineux, coming out on top in each of the last three encounters at the Etihad,

Players to watch: Haaland back on the goal trail

Erling Haaland marked his return from injury with a goal in Man City’s aforementioned 2-0 win at Nottingham Forest last weekend, but the Norwegian is a measly 1/2 (Bet 365) to get on the scoresheet on Saturday.

Nelson Semedo, who has been booked 10 times in the Premier League this season, could have the unenviable task of marking Jack Grealish on Saturday evening.

The Wolves right-back has committed exactly three fouls in each of his last two top-flight outings, so the 6/4 (Bet 365) about him committing  2+ against star-studded City gives us a great value option

Predicted lineups

Both Phil Foden and Ruben Dias should be in contention to return against Wolves after the pair missed out last weekend due to illness. City Goalkeeper Ederson was withdrawn at half-time against Nottingham Forest due to injury and looks set for a spell on the sidelines.

Wolves have no injury concerns and could name an unchanged side from the one who defeated Luton last Saturday.

Man City: Ortega; Walker, Akanji, Ake, Gvardiol; Rodri; Doku, Bernardo, De Bruyne, Grealish; Haaland

Wolves: Sa; Doherty, Kilman, Toti; Semedo, Lemina, Gomes, Traore, Ait-Nouri; Cunha; Hwang

Anything else catch the eye? Wolves could land a blow

While Man City should get the job done on Saturday evening without too much fuss, the 13/10 (UnIBet) about Wolves grabbing a goal here just looks too big to ignore from a price perspective.

Eleven of the 17 top-flight sides to visit the Etihad this term have managed to get on the scoresheet, a sample that includes the likes of Luton and Burnley.

Wolves have clearly upped their attacking output this season under Gary O'Neil's guidance, as evidenced by the fact that they have scored in 27 of their 35 league games so far.

With key players beginning to return from injury, the Old Gold are certainly capable of bloodying the nose of the Sky Blues, even in defeat.
