CITY TEAM

Starting XI: Ederson, Cancelo, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko, RodrigoGundoganBernardo Silva, Grealish, Sterling, Jesus

Subs: Steffen, Walker, StonesAkeDe BruyneFernandinhoMahrezFodenPalmer

WOLVES TEAM

Wolves XI: Sa, Samedo, Kilman, Coady, Saiss, Ait-Nouri, Neves, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Jimenez, Traore

Subs: Ruddy, Hoever, Marcal, Podence, Trincao, Boly, Silva, Hwang, Cundle

TACTICS 

It's the usual fluid 4-3-3 formation for City today. 

Ederson is back in goal and, as ever, his passing quality - both long and short - will be a vital element of our buildup play. 

Joao Cancelo plays on his natural side today and will look to support our attack down the right, with Oleksandr Zinchenko deployed down the left. 

They will play either side of Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte, whose partnership continues to flourish. 

Rodrigo will offer protection just in front of the back four. He has an ability to be in the right place at the right time and has been superb this season. Ilkay Gundogan, who captains City today, and Bernardo Silva, arguably our player of the season to date, will add guile and energy ahead of Rodrigo

And our front three of Gabriel JesusJack Grealish and Raheem Sterling looks fluid, free and full of invention. Sterling needs just one goal to enter the Premier League 100 club. 

Pep Guardiola preview

"Always when we face Wolves it has been tight games. They have scored 12 goals and conceded 13 and are so stable.

"They played more between the lines last season, it was always tough in last years when we faced Wolves and tomorrow will be no exception.

"They have structure, pace up front, good character. They are up there. They are doing an incredible season so far.

"We know it but we are in a good position to continue our run in the Premier League." 

WATCH: Highlights: RB Leipzig 2-1 City

Last time out

City were edged out 2-1 by RB Leipzig in our final Champions League Group A fixture.

Pep Guardiola’s men had already secured top spot in the group and our place in the knockout stages for a ninth consecutive season in the process, but goals from Dominik Szoboszlai and Andre Silva handed the hosts a two-goal lead with 20 to play.

Riyad Mahrez headed home his fifth goal in six Champions League matches this season to set up a grandstand finish, but City were reduced to ten men soon after when Kyle Walker was given his marching orders.

PREVIOUS meeting

A late brace from Gabriel Jesus and further strike from Riyad Mahrez helped City to a Club record equalling 28th game unbeaten back in March, as we ran out 4-1 winners at the Etihad Stadium.

Pep Guardiola’s men had won 20 successive matches in all competitions prior to Wolves’ visit, but Connor Coady’s equaliser on the hour, cancelling out an early own goal by Leander Dendoncker, threatened to bring that run to an end.

But a flurry of three goals in the final ten minutes handed City a deserved victory, as we moved 15 points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

Form guide

Defeat to RB Leipzig in our last outing brought an end to a seven-match winning run in all competitions for Manchester City.

Our last domestic defeat came at the hands of Crystal Palace back in October, but five successive league victories have moved the defending champions top of the Premier League table for the first time this season.

After winning five of their previous seven Premier League matches before a 0-0 draw with Norwich in late November, Wolves have failed to claim maximum points in each of their last three games.

Bruno Lage’s side currently sit eighth, but victory at the Etihad Stadium could move Saturday’s opponents up to sixth in the table.
