HE'S A KEEPER: Fernandinho congratulates Ederson on his outrageous assist - City's first created by a goalkeeper in the Premier League!

HE'S A KEEPER: Fernandinho congratulates Ederson on his outrageous assist - City's first created by a goalkeeper in the Premier League!

Vincent Kompany caps a memorable week by making his 250th Premier League appearance for City today against Wolves.

The skipper, who celebrated 10 years at the Club this week will lead the side at Molineux as the Blues look to continue the 100% winning start to the campaign.

TALKING POINTS: A game for the purists?

TV LISTINGS: Where can I watch the game?

Blues make two changes

Raheem Sterling and Kyle Walker return to the starting XI at the expense of John Stones and Gabriel Jesus.

City XI: Ederson, Walker, Laporte, Kompany (c), Mendy, Gundogan, Fernandinho, D Silva, Bernardo, Sterling, Aguero

Subs: Muric, Delph, Jesus, Otamendi, Sane, Stones, Mahrez

 

PEP: Wary of Wolves attack

 

Likely formation

After last week’s 3-5-2 style formation, the Blues look to have reverted to 4-2-3-1 or possibly a 4-3-3.

Sergio Aguero will lead the line with Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva likely to play on the flanks.

David Silva, looking for his 50th Premier League goal, will orchestrate with Fernandinho and Ilkay Gundogan leaning towards the midfield engine room in front of the back four.

Bernardo and Sterling will no doubt tuck inside when Benjamin Mendy and Kyle Walker raid the wings.

Wolves to sit deep?

Last season Wolves were happy to contain City in the Carabao Cup tie at the Etihad and hit the hosts on the counter-attack.

It was an effective tactic that brought several chances and made life difficult for a much-changed Blues.

After impressing in their opening two games, Wolves will be backed by a packed and passionate Molineux crowd, so it will be interesting to see how they set up for today’s game.

Wolves XI: 

Stats and milestones:

Wolves haven’t won a top-flight game since beating QPR in February 2012.

City are looking for an eight consecutive Premier League away win.

The Blues have never lost to a newly-promoted side under Pep Guardiola and have lost just one such game in the last 29 matches.

The last time...
