Wolves vs Manchester City
English Premier League
Date: Monday, 21 September 2020
Kick-off at 20:15 UK/ 21:15 CET
Venue: Molineux Stadium.
Such has been Pep Guardiola’s dominance that never once in his career has he gone on a two-year stretch without winning a league title.
He was soundly beaten by Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool the last season, and the Spaniard now has no option but to prioritize the EPL trophy.
The club management is trying to build a dynasty, and if they are able to win the 2020-21 title – which is going to be one of the toughest and most competitive league seasons ever in recent memory, the Citizens could finally lay a claim on the city of Manchester.
Arch-rivals the Reds have already started with a win, and so have the Blues, who have massively improved their roster. Now, it’s up to Pep and his boys to post the three points on the board. They just cannot afford to fall behind this early.
Considering their determination to put a halt to the dominant run of Klopp, the enormous pool of talent the Citizens boast of, and their h2h superiority over the Wanderers, expect a Manchester City win this Monday.
Wolves vs Manchester City: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Guardiola’s men had recorded nine of the former thirteen overall wins.
- They had kept clean sheets in four of the preceding seven meetings.
- At this stadium, the guests had scored two or more goals in three of the last five clashes.
- The latest match-up at this ground saw the hosts winning 3-2.
Wolves vs Manchester City: Prediction
The Citizens faced major heartbreak the last season, as they lost the league title as well as were dumped out of the CL by a Ligue 1 team. They are determined to have a revenge quest this time around, and are not going to drop points at any cost this Monday.
They might be on the road, but with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne (PFA Player of the Year), Raheem Sterling, Riyaz Mahrez etc on the roster, this should be light work.
Moreover, a huge win this match-day could make a statement to the rest of the league that they are still the team to beat.
It also deserves to be mentioned that Liverpool look a bit shaky at the moment. They were lucky to record a win against Leeds (a recently promoted club), and at one point or another in the next few weeks, they should drop points.
In such a case, the consistency of Pep Guardiola’s men should pay off. They do have a great h2h record against this rival after all.
Likely, expect a Manchester City win this game week.
