Wolverhampton – Manchester City, Premier League Prediction
Wolves did not start their Premier League campaign very easy and have 1 point in the first two games. The wolves have been defeated vs. Leicester in the last round and now welcome the champs, Man City, at Molineux Stadium. Wolves are hardly expecting to take anything from this game, but as we know, besides being the hosts in this case, the English teams, in principle, always oppose everyone and you never know. However, Wolves have only 1 loss in their last 26 matches as a host. For them this season is extremely important and they must survive at least in order to be able to fulfill the ambitious project of the club.
City continued to destroy teams and smashed by 6-1 Huddersfield last match and Aguero made a hat trick. Apparently, the absence of De Bruyne, who is probably the best player in the league, can not help but it will not be noticeable against teams like Wolves and Huddersfield. City can afford to leave players like Sane, Sterling and Mahrez on the bench and again to score 4-5 goals without problems. They will certainly benefit from the inaccuracies in wolves defense. Here, it is important to note that citizens do not save any strength, and everyone is trying to score, assist or create a position at any convenient time. City have 10 wins from their last 11 away games, with 9 of these wins having scored at least 2 goals.
It will be a surprise if the wolves close and play like this the whole game. They are expected to fight, press, be aggresive and make everything possible to make City’s life hard. Last season they kept 0-0 at Etihad in the FA Cup, but before that they had 4 consecutive losses from the citizens. We are expecting an open, spectacular and interesting match, and our prediction is over 2.5 goals at 1.55, and it’s possible for City to win again by 3-4 to 0, but Wolves also have their chances. This game is not just for betting, we recommend you to watch it, because on paper it should be quite exciting from a purely football point of view. Here are some alternative options
- Over 0.5 corner first 10 minutes – 1.60
- City to score in both halves – 1.80
Caballero and Dendoncker will still be absent. Doherty is also under question after the last match
In City, all the major players, except KDB, are ready. Otherwise, Danilo, Mangala and Bravo are out
