After securing a comfortable win over Watford last weekend, Manchester City should be heading into their match against Wolves on Saturday afternoon high in confidence.
However, the defeat versus RB Leipzig and mounting injury problems mean the picture isn’t entirely rosy going into the festive period.
Phil Foden (ankle), Nathan Ake (back) and Aymeric Laporte (knock) are doubts for the Wolves game, while Gabriel Jesus (knock) and Ferran Torres (foot) are ruled out.
Manchester City’s Predicted XI To Play Wolves:
Ederson, Walker, Dias, Stones, Cancelo, Silva, Rodri, Gundogan, Mahrez, Grealish, Sterling
Wolves boss Bruno Lage has doubts over captain Conor Coady (ankle) and Rayan Ait Nouri (knock), while Fernando Marcal (virus), Jonny (knee), Willy Boly (hamstring), Pedro Neto (knee) and Yerson Mosquera (hamstring) are all unavailable.
Wolves’ Predicted XI:
Sa, Semedo, Kilman, Coady, Saiss, Ait Nouri, Moutinho, Neves, Traore, Jimenez, Hwang
The bookies have City as the heavy favourites with Betway pricing them at 1/6 odds-on for the win. A draw is 7/1 with Bet 365 while a victory for Wolves is 18/1 at Betfred.
Predicted Score – 2-0 to City
