Manchester City vs Wolves: If City wins, they will be one step closer to the title

The series of City has no end in sight. The numbers are multiplying, the records are being broken, and the title is becoming clearer. Manchester City will try to move to a 15-point surplus at the top of the Premier League table tonight when Wolverhampton arrive in the 29th round Pep Guardiola's squad, which was written off in the first rounds of the season does not know about the failure in 27 previous matches in all competitions.

Out of that, they celebrated in 20 past duels, 14 in the league, and surpassed all self-proclaimed candidates for the title. The success of the team from the blue part of Manchester is bigger if it is known that they have been playing without the main scorer Sergio Aguero for almost the entire season, who due to numerous injuries played six matches and did not register as a scorer.

And the fact that the Argentine has scored a double-digit number of league goals in the team from the Etihad in the previous nine seasons, and on six occasions he had more than 20 goals, is the best evidence of what kind of executor he is.

Earlier duels

In the last duel, City defeated West Ham 2: 1 four days ago, while the Wolves drew 1: 1 with Newcastle. It must be noted that the Citizens have the best domestic record in the Premier League this season, winning 10 of their 13 matches, and will face the Wolves, who have won only 15 of the possible 39 points in 13 away championship matches.

City recorded a 3-1 win at Wolves stadium earlier this season, but the Wolves of Nuno Espirito Santo have won two of their last three Premier League games, including a 2-0 victory at the Etihad last time. Meanwhile, the Espirito Santo team has fought for consistency during the campaign and they are currently in 12th place, with nine points behind seventh-placed Everton, who have a game less.

Sergio Aguero for almost the entire season, who due to numerous injuries played six matches and did not register as a scorer. Wolverhampton is undefeated in the last five league matches, which they have won three times, including domestic successes over Arsenal and Leeds.

However, the main problem of the Wolves is inefficiency, because 27 goals scored in 26 games can hardly take the Wanderers to Europe. City will again be without the services of Nathan Ake due to injury, but Guardiola has the luxury of making numerous changes if he wants. Wolves are without Boly, Jimenez, and Podence.
