New Delhi: Premier League leaders Manchester City will host 12th place Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday. City are looking to extend their 20-game unbeaten run in all competitions before the Manchester Derby in Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Manchester City rested some of their important players for their previous league match against West Ham. Sterling, Cancelo and Bernardo Silva were all missing on that day, while Rodri and Foden came in as substitutes to claim a narrow win of 2-1.

 

Head-to-Head

The last time these teams met this season was in September, when City won by a comfortable 3-1. But, City lost their home fixture against Wolves last season by 2-0.

Predicted Line-ups:

Man City: Ederson; Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, John Stones, Kyle Walker; Rodri, Phil Foden, Kevin De Bruyne; Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva, Gabriel Jesus

Wolves: Rui Patricio; Romain Saiss, Conor Coady, Leander Dendoncker; Jonny, Joao Moutinho, Ruben Neves, Nelson Semedo; Adama Traore, Pedro Neto, Willian Jose

Prediction

City are the clear favourites by looking at their current form. City are expected to win the match by 2-0. Although, Wolves’ defence has performed well in their last seven matches, but City’s attack is in terrific form. They have scored 52 goals this season, most by any team this season while conceding only 16 so far.

Injuries

Man. City: Sergio Aguero made his first league start since October in Saturday’s 2-1 win over West Ham, with Nathan Ake now the only player unavailable for the hosts.

Wolverhampton: Willy Boly, Marcal, Daniel Podence, long-time absentee Raul Jimenez are all ruled out due to injury.
