Live Football: Manchester City vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Premier League live streaming info, squads, lineups & TV channels
Looking unconvincing at the back in recent weeks, Al Hain-Cole doesn’t expect the Citizens to have it all their own way against Espirito Santo’s men. 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.
Manchester City scored as many as 16 goals in two domestic cup wins over lower-division outfits Rotherham United and Burton Albion last week. Carabao Cup holders showed the anger after some unexpected Premier League slip-ups earlier on as they produced two superb attacking showings past clearly weaker rivals. Will they be able to maintain such attacking form on Monday night when Wolves come to visit Etihad in the last game of the Matchday.
Gabriel Jesus boosted up his confidence by bagging four goals past the Brewers on Wednesday evening. Kevin de Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez were also among goalscorers as they are looking for the chance to make the starting line-up here in the league tie with Wolves.
City previously reduced the gap behind leaders Liverpool down to four points thanks to a super important 2-1 victory over the Reds at Etihad. Sergio Aguero and Leroy Sane were goal-scorers on the occasion.
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.

Manchester City vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Stats
- Wolverhampton Wanderers are one of rare teams which managed to keep Manchester City to a draw this season.
- The two sides also met each other in the last 16 round of League Cup in October 2017 when the Citizens advance don penalties after the regular time saw no goals.
- It was their first H2H meeting in five years following Wolves’ adventures in the lower-division of English football.
The visitors will come into the match with an improved confidence after a 2-1 victory over Liverpool in the FA Cup seven days ago. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men took advantage of the fact Klopp decided to rest his main stars and Raul Jimenez and Ruben Neves notched goals to send their team into the fourth round of the more important domestic cup.
Wolves have previously shocked Tottenham Hotspur 1-3 away at Wembley, just days before falling 0-2 at home to Crystal Palace. They generally play much better against stronger rivals, but it’s really hard to see them doing much to harm the red Man City side.
Pep Guardiola’s men can’t afford any more slip-ups being still four points shy of Liverpool at the top of the ladder. We do expect the hosts to maintain their spell of excellent form and claim a comprehensive victory over Wolves here.
Today’s Possible XI
Manchester City: Ederson; Danilo, Otamendi, Laporte, Zinchenko; De Bruyne, Fernandinho, David Silva; Sterling, Sane; Jesus.
Wolverhampton Wanderers: Rui Patricio; Bennett, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Moutinho, Neves, Jonny; Costa, Jota; Jimenez.
