Manchester City vs Wolves: Predictions and Betting Tips

ManCity-Wolves

Manchester City will look to maintain their Premier League title charge when they host Wolves at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening.

Pep Guardiola’s Man City side are four wins away from securing the title for the fourth consecutive season, but face a determined Wolves side who will be eager to cause an upset.

City currently sit just one point behind Arsenal, but with a game in hand, they have the opportunity to reclaim the top spot. A victory against Wolves, followed by successful outings against Fulham, Tottenham, and West Ham, would see City retain the Premier League title, irrespective of Arsenal’s results.

Having suffered a surprising 2-1 defeat against Wolves in the reverse fixture earlier in the season, City will be eager to set the record straight at the Etihad Stadium today.

With recent wins against Brighton and Nottingham Forest, the Citizens City enter the match with confidence, particularly with Erling Haaland leading the Premier League scoring charts.

While Wolves have historically struggled in away matches against top-two sides, City must remain vigilant against potential upsets. However, with their impressive 42-game unbeaten run at the Etihad, City are poised to extend their dominance and potentially break a club record dating back to the early 20th century.

Man City vs Wolves Betting Tips

Man City have won seven of their last eight home Premier League matches against Wolves, losing 2-0 in October 2019.

Since completing a Premier League double over Man City in 1960/61, Wolves have managed just one top-flight double over the Citizens in 25 seasons.

Wolves could become the first club to complete two league doubles over Guardiola in his entire managerial career.

Extending to all competitions, City are unbeaten in their last 31 matches (W25 D6).

City are the favourites for this clash, winning a huge 71.1% of the Opta supercomputer’s pre-match simulations against Wolves.

Wolves have lost just twice in their last eight Premier League away games, and they could make life difficult for Guardiola, following the returns of Matheus Cunha and Hwang Hee-chan.
