Manchester City vs Wolves

Manchester City look to close the gap on Liverpool this Monday when they go up against Wolves for their 22nd match of the season. After giving up first place to Liverpool, Manchester City have closed the seven-point gap down to just four and with Liverpool losing their last two games they will be hoping to close the gap once again. Wolves arrive at this fixture in ninth place and off the back of an impressive win over Liverpool in their previous fixture. Wolves are one of the few teams that have suffered defeat to Manchester City, with their first meeting ending in a 1-1 draw at the Molineux stadium.

With Liverpool in their sights, Manchester City need to keep churning out three-point results to keep them within catching distance. Pep Guardiola’s last loss came five games ago to Leicester City and since then they have won four consecutive games. Their previous fixture saw them go up against Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup and City run riot over their League One opposition with a 9-0 stomping. As expected, Manchester City are clear favourites to take the three points from this fixture with odds of 2/11 at SkyBet. However, if you fancy there to be a repeat result then SkyBet are offering odds of 12/1 for the score to end 1-1.

City have been devastating on the attack this season and over the course of their 21 matches, they have racked up a huge 56 goals – which is the highest in the league. Their last two fixtures have seen them score 16 goals and all four of their last four wins have seen them score 2 or more goals. You can back City to score over 2.5 goals with Bet365 for a price of 4/5. Gabriel Jesus showed his class against Burton during their 9-0 stomping, as the forward bagged four goals. You can back the Brazilian to score anytime on Monday for a price of 4/6 with Bet365.

Nuno Espírito Santo will be expecting a tough game, but after drawing to or beating all of the top six sides in the league he will be feeling confident in his side’s abilities to secure at least a point. Wolves claimed another huge scalp on Monday when they secured a 2-1 win over Liverpool in the FA Cup which saw Premier League leaders face an early exit. Although Wolves hold a good record against the top six they arrive as huge underdogs and can be backed with Betway for a price of 16/1.

Wolves have been remarkably strong at the back for a newly promoted Championship side this season and over the 21 games played so far have conceded just 25 goals, only the top four and Leicester hold better records. Wolves managed to score just the one goal against City in their previous meeting and Betway are offering odds of 1/1 for them to score over 0.5 goals. Raúl Jiménez leads with most goals scored for Wolves with seven this season after bagging one against Liverpool in the FA Cup. Bet365 have the forward to score anytime priced at 15/4.
