Manchester City V Wolves – Team News, Predicted XI And Betting Odds

After winning against Liverpool and scoring 16 goals in two cup competitions, Manchester City will head into the Wolves game on Monday high in confidence.

They may be without Sergio Aguero for the game, however, with the Argentinian international suffering from flu. He could recover in time but Gabriel Jesus will be hopeful of keeping his place after hitting four goals against Burton Albion last time out.

Captain Vincent Kompany also remains a doubt after sustaining a muscular injury against Liverpool, and his fitness will be assessed ahead of Monday’s match at the Etihad.

Manager Pep Guardiola has revealed there is some good news on the fitness of Benjamin Mendy. The City boss has confirmed that the Frenchman is back in training following a knee injury. He is a couple of weeks away from a first-team comeback. Claudio Bravo (Achilles) still remains on the sidelines, though.

For Wolves, Nuno Espirito Santo currently has a fully fit squad to choose from and no suspensions ahead of the game.

The bookmakers see City getting the three points with Guardiola’s side 1/5 odds-on favourites at Sky Bet. A draw is 7/1 at Bet365 while a Wolves win is best priced at 16/1 with BetVictor.

City’s Predicted XI To Face Wolves:

Ederson, Danilo, Stones, Laporte, Zinchenko, De Bruyne, Fernandinho, Bernardo Silva, Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Sane

Wolves’ Predicted XI:

Rui Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Jonny, Neves, Moutinho, Costa, Jimenez, Diogo Jota

Predicted Score – 3-1 to City
