Manchester City will face Wolverhampton at Etihad Stadium at 22 Round of English Premier League. Manchester City against Wolverhampton is always the match with big interest after their previous matches in English Premier League. Review our thoughts on this match here below.
Manchester City had a great season since they lost to Chelsea, then to Crystal Palace and Southampton. They have lost their position on the top of the Premier League. However, they are showing great team and individual skills by attacking the football. City likely to concede while playing at home, they have conceded at least 1 goal in last 5 home matches. Home team scored at least 2 goals in their last 12 home matches in Premier League. Benjamin Mendy ruled out for next match for sure and Sergio Aguero is doubtful. The best news for the team that Kevin De Bruyne is back at full fitness and ready to show his best football.
A perfectly combined team gives great results this year by playing in English Cups, Premier League, and Europe. Great reserve team gives a chance to take a break for the main team, so that’s very good gaining experience and increasing competition between players.
Wolverhampton is a great team with talented players. This year this team showing sensational results by not losing to top 5 teams of Premier League, except Liverpool but then paid back at FA Cup. Matt Doherty, Raul Jimenez, Joao Moutinho, Ruben Neves and other are showing very nice football. These players are perfectly combined to play in the middle of the pitch, what gives a result by scoring from the game. Wolves have a problem with conceding from set pieces.
Nuno Espirito Santo Portuguese Head Coach of Wolverhampton previously worked at Porto and Valencia. He likes to invite to squad Portuguese players to make a technical and individually strong team as we can see already.
Teams played two times in last seasons. At 2017 Manchester City have won by penalties at League Cup. The last match played at the beginning of the season where teams played draw. This time Wolves will prepare defensive tactic trying to stop City’s powerful attack as in last two games.
