Wolves v Man City: Visitors ‘expected to claim three points’ in Midlands

Published

on

Manchester City have the chance to reclaim second place by avoiding defeat at Wolves on Friday night (19:45 GMT).

Leicester’s 4-0 home defeat to Liverpool on Boxing Day means City remain just one point behind the Foxes while possessing a superior goal difference.

The champions are 2/5 to claim all three points, with the draw 19/5.

A home win for Wolves is 13/2.

It arguably represents a tasty looking price for the hosts, who have been in impressive form of late.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have lost just one of their last 13 Premier League matches, and even that defeat came in the dying stages of their last home match against Tottenham, having been the dominant side for much of that meeting.

Wolves also beat City 2-0 at the Etihad in October, with Adama Traore scoring both goals.

The flying winger hasn’t looked back since, finally realising the undoubted potential he’s always possessed by adding better end product to cap off his amazing dribbling ability.

His pace on the counter-attack will be a huge concern to Pep Guardiola.

His City side, though, looked back to their free-flowing best when hitting three goals past Arsenal and Leicester in comfortable victories.

Midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has re-found his early season form and is a chance creation machine, leaving the rest of the league in his wake in that regard.

When in this sort of mood, 6/1 on him being named man of the match looks a good price.

Forwards Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling are likely to be the beneficiaries of his bullet crosses from the right flank, and they are 23/20 and 6/4 respectively to get on the scoresheet.

Sergio Aguero did return from injury from the substitutes’ bench against Leicester but this match is likely to have come a little too soon for him to start.

Wolves’ top goalscorer Raul Jimenez is 3/1 to score anytime.
