The Portuguese manager recently signed a new three-year deal at the club, having also brought in a number of new recruits to strengthen his side.
They won their opener 2-0 at Sheffield United, with Raul Jimenez and Romain Saiss finding the net at Bramall Lane.
But a slightly-weakened Wolves squad then lost 1-0 in the League Cup second round to Championship Stoke on Thursday.
Monday’s match, therefore, presents the club with the perfect opportunity to bounce back. But they come up against a City side who will be looking to get going right from the very start.
City haven’t lost their opening match in any of their last 11 top-flight campaigns, winning the last nine in a row. No team has ever won ten consecutive league openers in Premier League history before.
It’s currently 6/1 for the hosts to come out on top, with Guardiola’s men available at 4/9.
A draw between the pair can be backed at 19/5.
Their meetings in the last campaign certainly caused a shock to many, with Wolves winning on both occasions.
A late Adama Traore double saw the visitors leave Manchester with all three points in October in a 2-0 victory, with the side then defeating City 3-2 at home just before the turn of the New Year.
It’s currently 45/1 for another 2-0 Wolves win, and 66/1 for another repeat of their dramatic 3-2 victory.
Already with one goal to his name for the season, Jimenez is currently 8/1 to score the game’s opener.
Traore is available at 20/1 to net first, with Pedro Neto currently 14/1.
But the visitors are in no short supply of attackers of their own. With the likes of Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva and new winger Ferran Torres available, City can be expected to score plenty of goals this season.
Sterling has been given odds of 22/5 to find the game’s opening goal on Monday.
His team-mates Jesus and Mahrez are 21/5 and 6/1 respectively to score first.
The hosts can be backed at 6/1 to keep those attacking talents at bay and keep a clean sheet. And Guardiola’s defence are currently 6/5 to keep a clean sheet of their own.
