Manchester City vs Wolverhampton / Premier League – For the end of the 22nd round of the Premier League, we have a duel between the second-ranked Manchester City and this season's very good Wolverhampton, which is in the middle of the table. Manchester City had a crisis of results in December, but they returned to the winning track in the previous four games. Wolverhampton's results have changed recently, but they can boast with victories winning over some big rivalries. Duel between these rivals in the first part of the season, ended with a score of 1-1.
Manchester City vs Wolverhampton begins 14.01.2019 at 21:00 CET
Judging by the latest results, but also their great games lately, it seems that Manchester City is no longer in a crisis. The unexpected defeats from Crystal Palace and Leicester have cost them dearly, so they had a noticeable seven points less than Liverpool and then they defeated Southampton and Liverpool in a big derby and returned in the fight for defending the championship title. They were under great pressure in this derby and they managed to celebrate with 2-1, which obviously returned their confidence.
In the previous two games in the League Cup and FA Cup, they have mastered two teams from the lower league, Rotherham with 7- 0 and Burton with as many as 9-0 a few days ago. Those performances of Manchester City remind us of their best games from last season and they now of course want to continue in the same rhythm in the championship. Wolves will certainly be a tougher bite, but there Manchester City has a special motive after a draw in the first part of the season. Coach Guardiola is having certain problems in the composition, and Aguero’s performance is also questionable.
Probable lineups Manchester City: Ederson – Walker, Stones, Laporte, Delph – B.Silva, Fernandinho, D.Silva – Mahrez, Sterling, G.Jesus
Wolves are having a good season and their FA Cup victory has confirmed that, which was achieved against the leading Liverpool. They have recently lost by the same rival in the championship and were not expected to celebrate in the FA Cup, however, the opponent was not in the strongest and Wolverhampton has made the most of it. They have also two rounds ago mastered one big rival in the championship, a team of Tottenham, but they have spoiled it all with a home defeat in the last round by Crystal Palace.
All this shows that they are unpredictable, they are always able to surprise and they have almost the same effect at home and on the side. They have even won one point more as guests and have a better goal difference than in their field. Coach Nuno Santo has made several changes after the unexpected defeat by Crystal Palace and it has paid off in their duel with Liverpool, especially when he included midfielder Neves in the game, who brought them a triumph. There will now be some refreshments, but it is important to say that they do not have any injured players.
Probable lineups Wolverhampton: Patricio – Bennett, Coady, Boly – Doherty, Ruben Neves, J.Moutinho, Jonny – Traore, Jota – R.Jimenez
Manchester City vs Wolverhampton PICK
Manchester City is in great mood and they are filling the networks of their rivals, though they are still much weaker. We also expect the Wolves to be offensive and motivated, but we should not write off the guest team, because they have already surprised some favourites and they might contribute to an effective duel.
