The ‘crisis’, if you can call it that, is over for Manchester City and Pep Guardiola‘s men now have Liverpool firmly in their sights as they seek to trim the seven-point gap between themselves and the Premier League leaders. Next up is a visit from Wolves, who have already sprung their fair share of surprises this season.
City’s last league game was the galvanising victory over the Reds and since then they have rattled in 16 goals in the thrashings of Rotherham and Burton in the FA and EFL Cups respectively.
Those games have extended the Citizens remarkable streak of netting two or more in 16 of their 17 home matches this season, while they have already scored five or more goals at the Etihad Stadium in three league games.
Goals come easy to Guardiola’s side, averaging 3.37 per game, and they should be able to maintain that average, despite Wolves having not conceded more than two away from home since returning to the top flight.
After a spell on the sidelines, Sergio Aguero has looked sharp and has scored in City’s last two games. He is 9/4 to score first, while Gabriel Jesus, who scored four in the 9-0 win over Burton, is 5/8 to net anytime.
Wolves’ results have been tough to predict this season, their last three matches being a case in point – they won at Tottenham, lost at home to Crystal Palace and then beat Liverpool in the FA Cup.
Nuno Espirito Santo‘s men gave a great account of themselves in the reverse fixture between these two, holding City to a 1-1 draw and they should rise to the challenge again.
With Wolves having netted in nine of their 11 away matches this season, both teams to score in this contest is appealing.
