Kick-off: 1400, 06/10/2019
Stadium: Etihad Stadium
Manchester City are expected to secure a sixth straight win in all competitions when entertaining Wolves but the visitors should also have their moments.
The Blues are depleted at the back and Wanderers will have been boosted by last weekend’s smooth Premier League success against Watford.
Punters can get 5/4 for both teams to score at Etihad Stadium and that is tempting enough to be our first Man City vs Wolves prediction.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
City enjoyed a pretty easy ride when beating Dinamo Zagreb 2-0 in the Champions League here on Tuesday, but they were previously pushed hard at Everton before prevailing 3-1.
With Aymeric Laporte and John Stones absent, Nicolas Otamendi was paired with Fernandinho in central defence and that did leave them more open to counter-attacks.
Ederson had to make some crucial saves at Goodison Park and Pep Guardiola was relieved to finish a tense contest on top.
He stated: “Everton have fast players, they caused a lot of problems at the back, so I’m delighted because we want to go for this league and try to win it again.”
The Blues obviously have a wealth of talent to call on in other areas, but Kevin De Bruyne is carrying a knock and Bernardo Silva may be distracted by this week’s FA charge.
Looking at the Man City vs Wolves odds, we feel 9/5 for the visitors with two goals start on the handicap list is fair value.
Last City line-up: Ederson, Mendy, Cancelo, Otamendi, Gundogan, Rodri, B Silva, D Silva, Fernandinho, Aguero, Mahrez.
City will be without Kevin De Bruyne due to a groin problem, while winger Leroy Sane (knee) is a long-term absentee.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves have struggled to replicate the form which saw them finish seventh last season, but there have been some more positive signs in the Premier League of late.
Diogo Jota snatched a last-gasp equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace when Wanderers were down to 10 men, before a first win in this competition came against Watford.
Even when losing to Chelsea and Everton, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side netted twice in each of those defeats.
The Europa League remains a big distraction and travelling to Turkey this week to face Besiktas is a tough trip to recover from.
However, Nuno insisted: “Big teams do it, we are doing this now and we want to embrace it. We are doing well and all the squad is ready to go.”
Raul Jimenez is always a threat up front for the visitors and 3/1 he nets at anytime is worth adding to our Man City vs Wolves betting tips.
Last Wolves EPL line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Saiss, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Neto, Jimenez, Traore.
Jota remains a major injury doubt for Wolves, as the 22-year-old has been nursing a foot problem recently that caused him to miss the win over Watford and Thursday’s Europa League victory against Besiktas.
MAN CITY 2-0 Dinamo Zagreb – Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden
Besiktas 0-1 WOLVES – Willy Boly
Head-to-head: Man City 3-0 Wolves, Wolves 1-1 Man City,
