Manchester City Prediction

Manchester City have simply blown away the opposition in their last two matches as they’ve scored an amazing total of 16 goals and conceded none in reply following emphatic wins over Rotherham United 7-0 in the FA Cup which was swiftly followed by a 9-0 trouncing of League One side Burton Albion in the League Cup.

However, as convincing as these two wins were, they’ll mean very little in the scheme of things if Manchester City don’t manage to beat Wolves on Monday night as they look to close the gap on Premier League leaders Liverpool who hold a useful seven point lead at the top of the division.

Following surprise back-to-back defeats over the Christmas period to Crystal Palace and Leicester City, the hosts have bounced back with wins over Southampton and a crucial 2-1 win over title rivals Liverpool – but is it too late for Pep Guardiola’s men?

Every game has now become a ‘must-win’ situation for City who now need to make up lost ground, but with an excellent home record which stands at 10-0-1 37/10 and scoring 3 goals or more in 7 of their 11 home matches to date, the hosts look well set for success tonight.

Key-Facts – Manchester City v Wolves

    • Manchester City have scored 16 goals in their last two matches in all competitions
    • Manchester City have scored 3 goals or more in 7 of their 11 home matches
    • Wolves have failed to score in just 2 of their 10 away matches

Wolves Prediction

Wolves dropped to a mid-table position after this weekend’s action following a surprising 2-0 defeat at home to Crystal Palace last time out, although a 2-1 home win over Liverpool in the FA Cup 3rd round will have been a big boost after the Palace defeat.

On the whole though it’s been a very successful campaign back in the top flight this season for Wolves who are 11 points clear of the relegation zone, and they’ve brought an attacking approach to their game this time around which has resulted in a very creditable total points haul to date of 29.

Wolves have also held their own away from home too which is reflected in an away record of 4-3-3 11/10 which includes wins at West Ham, Crystal Palace, Newcastle United and most impressive of all, a 3-1 win at Tottenham.

Betting Tips Verdict

Manchester City are solid favourites to win this clash but goals should also feature as Wolves are not the type of side to just put 11 players behind the ball.
