Man City vs Wolves: Predictions
Pep Guardiola’s men will be aiming to continue their 20-match winning streak after their hard-fought 2-1 victory over West Ham on Saturday. City extended their advantage at the top of the league after both Leicester and Manchester United dropped points on Sunday.
Wolves continue to struggle this season and were held to a 1-1 draw against relegation fighting Newcastle United. After an exceptional couple of years in the top flight, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side seems to have stagnated following the head injury sustained to striker Raul Jiminez.
Another positive for Guardiola was the return to the starting XI for Sergio Aguero, although the Argentine had a quiet game his manager will have been pleased to see their main striker back to full fitness ahead of the business end of the season.
If Wolves fail to beat City on Tuesday, the Citizens will have then equalled their 28-game unbeaten run which Guardiola’s side put together between May and December in 2017.

The 20-year-old has already scored six goals this season and will be looking to add to that after only making the bench on Saturday.
Wolves are the fifth-lowest scorers in the league this season having only scored 27 times. City will be aiming to keep them 27 league goals after the 90 minutes on Tuesday with the Wanderers looking toothless going forward against Newcastle on the weekend.

Wolves have a relatively good record against Guardiola’s side since rejoining the Premier League, however, Tuesday’s visitors to the Etihad have not looked this poor since their promotion back to the top flight and Guardiola’s City side look like the same animal which won the league with 100 points just a couple of seasons ago.
