Man City vs Wolves Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 0-2.

Manchester City are hoping to continue to build on their back-to-back league victories as they aim to close the gap on Liverpool at the top of the Premier League on their way to a third successive title.

Predictions

Manchester City bounced back from their shock 3-2 loss at Norwich with convincing 8-0 and 3-1 victories over Watford and Everton respectively.

Pep Guardiola’s side are currently five points off the pace having also dropped points at home to Tottenham this season.

Wolves secured their first Premier League victory of the season last time out as they recorded a 2-0 win at home to basement side Watford.

However, NunoEspirito Santo’s side have just seven points from their opening seven league games as they have struggled to replicate last season’s superb form.

The hosts will be favourites to continue their winning form due to possessing home advantage, superior form and quality over Wolves.

The home side are favourites to win this game and it should be very comfortable – a 5-0 triumph for Pep Guardiola’s side would appear a likely outcome from it.
