Premier League leader Manchester City host Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday for the first of a slate of midweek games. The Cityzens are on a 19-game winning streak in all competitions and go into the Tuesday night game aiming to move three points further ahead of Manchester United – who slipped up once more at the weekend with a nil-nil draw versus Cheslea.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have been a bogey team for Pep Guardiola over the last few seasons. In five Premier League games since Wolverhampton Wanderers returned to the Premier League, they have posted a 2W-1D-2L record against Manchester City. They did the double of Manchester City in 2019-20 and won spectacularly at the Etihad Stadium, 2-0.

With Raul Jimenez out with a head injury, Wolves are a much different team. Still, Nuno Espirito Santo’s team are unbeaten in their last five league matches with three of those games ending in wins. At the weekend, Wolverhampton Wanderers came from a goal down to snatch a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United away from home.

Manchester City went to Molineux in September and won 3-1 thanks to goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus. Jimenez pulled a goal back for Wolverhampton Wanderers but it was of little help. Can Wolverhampton Wanderers break up Manchester City’s winning streak or will it be another victory for Guardiola’s team?

Manchester City vs Wolves Betting Odds

Manchester City top the current form table with a brilliant 18 points from 18 possible. On Saturday, Manchester City had to work for a victory away to West Ham. Ruben Dias’s opening goal was cancelled out by Michail Antonio. As the Cityzens applied more pressure, John Stones found the back of the net for a rare goal. What was impressive late in the game was Manchester City’s defensive resolve as a good West Ham side pushed for an equaliser.

Manchester City are at odds of 1/7 to win at the end of full-time against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Cityzens have taken 32 points from 13 games possible. They have posted 27 goals this season and conceded eight times at the Etihad Stadium.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are at odds of 19/1 to win at the Etihad away on Tuesday night. The Old Gold are in great form right now and sit in third place in the current form table. They only scored six goals over the course of their last six matches while conceding four times.

The club have won just once in their last six games in the Premier League. They are –7 in goal difference this season. Wolves have won two of their last five games versus Manchester City and can always pop up with a result. However, this Manchester City team are a juggernaut.

Manchester City vs Wolves Team News

Guardiola is having a brilliant run of player fitness. Only centre-back Nathan Ake is ruled out of the midweek game due to injury. The defender is expected back at the weekend for Manchester City and will make the team overall stronger. Ake’s problem is that Dias and Stones are playing brilliantly in defence and will be difficult to outplay in training.

One problem that Guardiola has at the moment is trying to get Sergio Aguero back into the side after being out for so long. Aguero has played a bit part for Manchester City but is still needed. His contract will be up at the end of the season and is likely to leave the club.

Santo has four players suffering from injuries at Wolverhampton Wanderers. Daniel Podence is ruled out still due to and groin injury. He is nearing an injury and will be back in mid-March. Willy Boly is also ruled out and no return date is given currently. Fernando Marcal and Jimenez are both ruled out of action.

With Jimenez out of action, midfielder Ruben Neves has risen to the forefront for Santo over the last two months. Neves has five goals and one assist in 25 appearances. His goals have been huge and his second half strike against Newcastle United gave the team a share of the spoils at the weekend.

Ilkay Gundogan has been brilliant for Manchester City this term scoring 11 goals in 20 appearances. The has scored four goals in his last four league matches. Gundogan has become more important than ever for Manchester City and is now truly fulfilling his potential at the club since arriving at Borussia Dortmund.

Aguero could select Aguero for the game and give him the chance to play and get match fit. Aguero can play a big role going forward. The problem is that Guardiola isn’t sure when or if he can pick the striker. Tuesday night could see Aguero get time on the pitch.

Although Wolverhampton Wanderers are a good team and unbeaten in five league fixtures, Manchester City should win and continue their great streak. Wolves should start strongly, but fail to keep with the Cityzens when they go into a higher gear.
