Manchester City will be aiming to maintain the pressure on Liverpool when Wolverhampton Wanderers visit the Etihad Stadium on Monday.

The champions kept themselves within touching distance of the leaders by beating them 2-1 in the last Premier League match, but still go into this clash seven points adrift with a game in hand.

Latest odds

Having won five of their previous six top flight home matches against this opposition, they are 2/11 (1.18) favourites with bet365 to close the gap by coming out on top.

However, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men held the champions to a 1-1 draw in the reverse encounter, and are available at 7/1 (8.00) to earn another draw or 16/1 (17.00) to pull off a shock win.

Team news

Sergio Aguero should be available for after missing the 9-0 Carabao Cup win over Burton Albion due to illness, leaving Benjamin Mendy as the only real first team absentee.

Meanwhile, Wolves have the luxury of a fully fit squad to choose from, with Ruben Neves hoping to keep his place in the team after scoring the winner in last week’s FA Cup victory against Liverpool.

Goals at both ends

Having scored 16 goals in two cup games since that all important victory over Liverpool, Pep Guardiola’s men will come into this clash full of confidence.

On the other hand, one clean sheet in their last 11 league fixtures suggests they will do well to keep out a visiting attack that has found the net in all but one of the last nine league away matches.


All in all, odds of 7/4 (2.75) look like solid value on Wolves getting on target despite coming away with nothing.

That bet is particularly appealing considering both teams have scored in nine of City’s last 11 league matches and each of the guests’ last five games on the road.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
