Team News: Manchester City
The Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola will be grateful not to have any fitness worries whatsoever before this clash with a completely injury-free group available to select from.
Team News: Wolves
Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui has to choose a team with limited availability. Chiquinho (Cruciate Ligament Injury) and Sasa Kalajdzic (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
It seems to us that Wolverhampton Wanderers could really find it hard to be scoring even one goal against a Manchester City team who should boss this game in attack, midfield and defence.
We think that it’s going to be a very comprehensive 3-0 win for Manchester City at the end of the game.
