Manchester City vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Prediction Prediction Match Details

Manchester City is set to face a challenging match at the Etihad Stadium as they go up against Wolves in the 36th round of the Premier League on Saturday evening. Pep Guardiola’s team is only four consecutive wins away from clinching their fourth successive Premier League title.

Manchester City Preview & Form

Manchester City, the defending Premier League champions, are currently on a five-match winning streak in the league. They have a strong chance of winning the league, but only if they win all their remaining matches. Currently sitting in second place in the league standings with 79 points from 34 games, City are just one point behind Arsenal, who will play an early kick. This puts pressure on City to win all of their remaining games to stay in the title race.

Recently, City demonstrated their winning mentality by beating Nottingham Forest 2-0 on the road. They will feel confident entering their next game against Wolves, as they have scored 19 goals in their last five Premier League games. 

Pep Guardiola’s side has displayed magnificent performances when playing at home this season. They have remained unbeaten throughout the run in all competitions, except for their Champions League exit through penalties. In the Premier League, the Citizens have been lethal in front of goal at home, scoring 12 goals in total in their last five games and keeping three clean sheets.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview & Form

Wolves Wanderers fought hard to break their seven-match winless streak with a win against Luton Town in their last home match. The team is aiming to finish in the top half of the table and currently sits in 11th place with 46 points from 35 games. They have won 13 matches, drawn seven, and lost 15; they are only two points away from the top half of the table.

However, when playing away from home, Gary O’Neil’s side has struggled, with poor performances in their last five matches. They have recorded two consecutive draws, two consecutive losses, and a win, conceding at least one goal in each match but failing to score in two. In their last away match, Wolves drew 2-2 against Nottingham Forest, but they will aim to improve their performance in their upcoming game against Manchester City, hoping to replicate their earlier upset in the Premier League.
