Preview | September 17

Wolverhampton Wanderers-Manchester City

Can Erling Haaland leave his mark?

For their 7th game of the Premier League season, Man City travel to Molineux to solidify their standing against 14th place Wolves. City won't lie down and be easily beaten by Wolves because they took all three points in the last league fixture between them. The larger history also skews in Man City's favor, as they've secured at least a point against Wolves in twelve of their last sixteen tries.

Wolves | WDDLD | 14th | Top Scorer: Daniel Podence (2)

There's a real feel good factor at Wolves right now, they'll  be looking to keep up their impressive run of form in this fixture. They've overcome a below average scoring attack. Their average xG (expected goals) of 1 is 6th lowest in the league. José Sá has conceded just two goals in his last 5, making 14 great saves in this time. Pedro Neto will be leaned on for creativity. He has been a top distributor all season, recording 12 passes into the box over the year (15th in the EPL).

Man City | DWWDW | 2nd | Top Scorer: E. Haaland (10)

Man City are a side full of confidence at the moment and they'll be looking to make it 7 games unbeaten here. Man City are one of the most attacking teams in the league and the stats back this up. Their average xG (expected goals) of 2.4 is the highest in the league. Scoring 8 in his last 5 matches, Erling Haaland has been prolific in front of goal recently. Key assist man Kevin De Bruyne will be looking to keep up the creativity after recording 3 assists in their last 5 matches.

Prediction: Wolves 2-3 Man City

This could be a blockbuster as two exciting attacks meet. There should be plenty of goals, but expect Man City to have too much for Wolves.

Did you know? The biggest victory for either team in their Premier League history was a 5-1 drubbing Man City handed out in 2022.

Can Wolves keep their good run going with a home win? Will Man City pick up 3 more points? You've seen the stats, now check out the odds for this and all the other Premier League matches over at PokerStars Sports.
