English Premier League match and betting preview 

It’s a classic David vs Goliath fixture later today as Wolverhampton Wanderers host Manchester City at the Molineux stadium. 

Wolves new signing, Diego Costa has begun training with the team and will hope to feature against City at some point with main striker, Raul Jimenez still out injured.  

City, on the other hand, will be confident that they can come away with maximum points on this occasion, especially with star forward, Erling Haaland firing on all cylinders. The Norwegian striker has already scored 10 goals in just six games and will be confident of adding to his early season tally.

Head-to-head record 

In 21 games, the home team has won just 4 times, compared to City’s 13 wins. The two teams have also split the points, drawing four games. 

Wolves have lost the last five games to City. You’ll have to go all the way back to their 6th game way back in 2019 to find the last time Wolves beat City; 0-2 away at the Etihad on that occasion.   

Form guide 

Wolves have won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five games (L-W-D-D-W) while City have won four of their last five games and drawn the fifth (W-W-D-W-W). 

Team news 

As we mentioned earlier, Diego Costa is already training and might be in the squad for tomorrow. Star striker, Raul Jimenez is out with a muscle injury. Chiquinho and Sasa Kalajdzic both have cruciate ligament injuries and Boubacar Traore has been out with personal reasons.  

Expected Wolves starting XI: Jose Sa; Rayan Ait Nouri, Max Kilman, Nathan Collins, Jonny; Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Matheus Nunes; Pedro Neto, Goncalo Guedes, Daniel Podence.   

Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez both fluffed their chances to stake a claim for a starting spot against Borussia Dortmund and are both expected to drop back to the bench for this game.  

Key defenders, Kyle Walker is still recovering from an injury and might miss the game while Aymeric Laporte (Medial Collateral Ligament Injury) is definitely missing the game as he’s not expected back before October. 

Expected City Starting XI: Ederson; Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias, Manuel Akanji, Sergio Gomez; Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne, Ilkay Gundogan; Bernado Silva, Erling Haaland, Phil Foden.
