Everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League clash at the Etihad Stadium on Monday

Manchester City should be at close to full strength for the visit of Wolves on Monday night.

Kevin De Bruyne and David Silva have minutes under their belts after some set-backs over Christmas and are very likely to start as City return to league action following their victory over Liverpool.


MAN CITY INJURIES


Sergio Aguero has missed the last two games with an illness but should be in contention for Monday.

Benjamin Mendy is still on the sidelines but should be back by the start of February. Claudio Bravo is another long-term absentee with an Achilles problem.

MAN CITY SUSPENSIONS


Neither side have any suspensions.


MAN CITY POTENTIAL STARTING LINE-UP


Fabian Delph could return at left-back following his ban, although he was eligible to play against Burton.

Aside from that it could be a pretty straight-forward selection to guess. Pep Guardiola is sure to take Wolves seriously and therefore will pick his strongest midfielders, as long as there are no unforeseen set-backs over the weekend.

Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sane seem to be the first-choice wingers at the moment and they seem likely to start either side of Aguero, as long as he is fit enough to play.
