Man city vs Wolves – Betting preview
Man City Preview
Following a 2-1 Premier League loss to Manchester United, Manchester City won’t want a repeat of that performance here!
Manchester City had 70% of the possession in that game and 1 of its 5 shots on goal were successful. Jack Grealish (60′) was the only player to score for Manchester City.
Manchester United’s adversaries had 8 shots total, 4 of which were on goal. Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes both scored goals for Manchester United in the final two minutes.
Manchester City, under Pep Guardiola, have scored 10 goals in their last six games. Six goals have been scored in comparison to them in the same period of time.
Coming into this meeting, Manchester City have not been beaten in the league by Wolverhampton Wanderers in their previous 5 games.
Also, The Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has zero fitness worries at all before this clash owing to a completely injury-free squad to pick from! So more trouble for Wolves.
Wolves will be hoping to make up for losing their previous FA Cup match against Liverpool by winning this one.
Wolverhampton Wanderers had 58% of the game’s possession and 2 of their 11 shots on goal were successful. Liverpool had 7 shots at goal at the other end, with 2 of those being on target. Liverpool scored with a goal from Harvey Elliott (13′).
According to the statistics, Wolves have allowed opponents to score in 5 of their last 6 games, resulting in a total of 6 goals for the opposition. Wolverhampton Wanderers have obviously had some issues on defence.
Of course, there’s a chance that pattern won’t continue into this match.
Concerningly, Wolves manager Julen Lopetegui has a number of players out of action. Chiquinho (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Sasa Kalajdzic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are not able to play.
