Manchester City has the opportunity to build its lead at the top of the Premiership this weekend when it hosts struggling Wolverhampton at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester City and the Wolves have clashed eight times in the last decade. City has won five of these matches, while three victories have gone the way of Wolverhampton. The teams have not drawn once during this period, and the Wolves have not picked up a single away win.
Wolverhampton’s most recent visit to the Etihad produced a 4-3 win for Manchester City.
Man City comes into this fixture on the back of the biggest win in their history, a 6-1 annihilation of Manchester United that left City with four wins and a single defeat from its last five matches.
City has put away 16 goals in its last five matches as its strike force has hit top gear. Defence has been average, letting in 5 goals in five matches.
By contrast the Wolves are in dire straits, with three losses, a draw and a single win from their last five matches. Fans will be hoping that the club’s away draw against Swansea on the weekend signals a recovery that will see them move away from the relegation zone.
The Wolves have scored 9 goals in their past five matches, a stat inflated my a big win over Milwall in the League Cup back in September. Defence has struggled with 8 goals conceded in the same period.
Manchester City won’t rest on their laurels for this fixture. With the Wolves defence struggling, expect City’s strikers to run rampant against their opponents.
We’re not only expecting a City win, but a big one. With this in mind our Manchester City vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers betting tip is to take the best price you can find on over 2.75 goals being scored in this match in the Over/Under goals market.
