Recent Form

Nuno Espirito Santo appears to have got the better of Pep Guardiola as Wolves did the double over Man City last term, while his team have lost just one of five head to heads in all competitions since 2017/18. Even the Citizens’ sole win came at the Etihad, so they look rather on the short side for a team that has made a habit of slipping up on their travels.

Indeed, Man City lost seven away matches last term and while two of them were shockers against Norwich and Southampton, the other five were all inflicted by top-eight finishers.

Wolves +1 Asian Handicap

Given Wolves have lost just four of their last 27 at Molineux, and only two of them by more than a single strike, they should be backed on the Asian handicap to make their visitors sweat.

Wolves are not without recent blemishes themselves and lost at home to Stoke midweek in the League Cup.

However, Nuno did make five changes to his starting line-up, even if the likes of Ruben Neves and Adam Traore still made the cut, and he’ll have his best team barring injured left wing-back Jonny on display here.

Guardiola will have to make do without Sergio Aguero up front, but he has plenty of attacking options and the real concern is over key-centre-back Aymeric Laporte.

The Frenchman has only just re-joined the squad after catching coronavirus and won’t feature here, so all eyes will be on summer signing Nathan Ake as the Dutch international will have to take charge of a disorganized backline.

Both Teams To Score

Man City only kept clean sheets in three of nine trips to top-half sides last term, and so even if Ake is able to strike up a partnership with Laporte in the long term, it will be hard for him on his debut.

He’s been away recently with the Netherlands squad and so won’t have had the time to generate a proper partnership at the back with anyone at the squad yet, so we’d be surprised if they were entirely solid at the back in this one.

Although Wolves have kept six clean sheets from their last seven at Molineux in the league, all but two of those matches were against top-half teams and City’s attack is a different kettle of fish.

Nine of their last 11 hosting top-half sides have seen both teams find the net, which looks a steady bet with City great going forwards but still deficient at the back.

Wolves + 1 Asian Handicap At 49/50

Both Teams To Score At 4/5
