There could be no more entertaining advert for the Premier League than Guardiola's champions, and Al Hain-Cole expects goals in the Asia Trophy final

Wolves and Manchester City will go head-to-head for the Premier League Asia Trophy when they meet at the Hongkou Stadium in Saturday's final.

The Citizens are taking part in the final for the second time, having also lifted the trophy after beating Sunderland back in 2013.

Latest odds

Having finished 41 points ahead of their opponents in last season's Premier League, they are 10/21 (1.48) favourites with SportPesa to get their hands on more silverware by coming out on top in Shanghai.

Nuno Espirito Santo's men ran out comfortable 4-0 winners over Newcastle in their semi-final clash, but are 19/4 (5.75) outsiders to pull off a shock win over the English champions.

Two of the last three encounters between this pair have resulted in draws, and there are odds of 7/2 (4.50) on this one going to penalties after a deadlocked 90 minutes.

Team news

Ederson, Gabriel Jesus, Fernandinho, Sergio Aguero and Nicolas Otamendi are all absent following their involvement in the Copa America, while Riyad Mahrez is at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Matt Doherty is unavailable as he recovers from a minor knee ligament injury, with Romain Saiss and Raul Jimenez also absent due to international commitments.

Preview

Premier League fans in China will be delighted to have the opportunity to see Pep Guardiola's team in action, with entertainment almost guaranteed when they take to the field.

Indeed, Saturday's final is unlikely to be short of goalmouth action considering the champions averaged almost three goals a game in all competitions last season - hitting the net 169 times in 60 fixtures.

Predictions

With Wolves also in confident spirits in front of goal after putting four past Newcastle in the semi-finals, odds of 7/5 (2.40) are well worth backing on over 3.5 goals being scored once again here.
