Manchester City seems to have overcome the two successive losses from Crystal Palace and Leicester at the end of the past year. The Citizens have won the previous two games in the league against Southampton and Liverpool and lowered the points deficit to four. In the last days, Pep Guardiola’s boys were involved in fixtures for England’s two cups. Firstly, for the FA Cup they knocked out Rotherham with 7-0, and over the week they played for EFL Cup against Burton and won with a 9-0 score.

The performance of Wolverhampton this season is quite odd. Wolves are playing amazingly against the top teams in the league – draws against the big two from Manchester and victories with comeback versus Chelsea and Tottenham. However, versus teams that are expected to win against, Wolves are not performing on a high level and are losing points. The most recent example is in the last round of the Premier League, where Wolverhampton lost against Crystal Palace at home with 2-0. Wolves also played against Liverpool for FA Cup and won with a 2-1 score.

Yes, Manchester City are very effective since the beginning of 2019, but Wolverhampton are at a much higher level than Rotherham and Burton. Wolves are performing wonderfully versus the teams from Top 6 and are not afraid to play against them. They counter-attack successfully and have Plan B if the result doesn’t satisfy them. The hosts are the big favourite in this game and hardly will fail in this match, but the guests will have their chances and will benefit from them.

I will back Both Teams to Score, with Manchester City 2-1 Correct Score. We recommend placing this bet in MansionBet, where you can take advantage of a $50 Welcome Bonus and regular promotions for loyal customers.
