Table-toppers Manchester City lock horns with 12th placed Wolverhampton. City are on a fairytale, dream-run and have been remarkable off-late. They have registered straight wins in their last 20 games across all leagues. Presently, they are 12 points clear off second-placed Manchester United in the English Premier League (EPL) and have mostly plugged all holes. Wolves on the other hand, have been inconsistent and they have a huge task in front of them. The match will be taking place in Etihad Stadium and it is slated to begin at 1:30 AM (IST).
City do not have much injury concerns and have a full-team squad at their disposal. Only Nathan Ake will be unavailable because of injury.
Nuno Espirito Santo will have some selection headaches as he has some unavailable players. Daniel Podence will miss this game because of a tear in his abductor muscle. Ace striker Raul Jimenez suffered a skull injury last November and will not be available. Willy Boly is also uncertain for this match.
Pep Guardiola’s team is coming on the back off a 2-1 victory against West Ham and will be supremely confident. John Stones and Roben Dias netted 2 goals and got the victory for the Cityzens. In the reverse fixture between these two teams in this season, City emerged victorious with a 3-1 win. City have been in surreal form in the EPL too, winning 14 straight matches.
Wolves on the other hand, have a lot on their plate. They have been struggling in the EPL and drew their last game against Newcastle United. But they have some good form with them as they have been unbeaten in the last 5 games and have 3 wins under their belt, out of those. They should take this to their stride and try and capitalize against the City giants.
