The match

League leaders Manchester City play host to eighth place Wolverhampton at the Etihad Stadium on matchday 16 of the Premier League. The home side have been rolling lately, winning five straight league matches and outscoring their opponents 12-3 during that stretch. The visitors are coming into this match on the back of a heartbreaking 94th minute 1-0 loss to Liverpool. The Citizens hold a slim lead atop the table with 35 points, as Liverpool and Chelsea trail with 34 and 33 points, respectively. Manager Pep Guardiola somewhat surprisingly chose to start a number of key players for Tuesday's Champions League match, given that the top spot in the group had already been secured. With only three days rest leading up to Saturday's clash against Wolves, there is the potential for some tired legs.

Former Benfica boss Bruno Lange has instilled a clear identity in his new team focused on remaining tight at the back. Wolves boast the fourth best defensive record in the league, conceding only 13 goals - bested only by City, Chelsea and Liverpool. This has, however, come at the cost of offensive production. Wolves have scored only 12 times this season, a figure that sees them second lowest in the league with Norwich the only team that have scored fewer. The West Midlands based club will likely look to approach this match with a similar game plan that almost saw them scrape a point against Liverpool.

Key Statistics

  • Manchester City have only conceded three goals at home in the Premier League.
  • Under 2.5 goals in five straight matches for Wolves.
  • There have only been four total goals scored in Wolves’ last five matches.

The bet of our experts

Expect Wolves to remain deep and compact as they try to neutralize Pep Guardiola's wide array of attacking talent. Under 3.5 goals looks to be a safe bet and is the play we will go with here. The individual quality of City's players should be enough to see them through with a 1-0 or 2-0 victory. For better odds, under three goals on the Asian totals market or under 2.5 goals both provide great odds. Other good alternatives would be City to win to nil or City to win + under 3.5 goals.
