Manchester City return to the Premier League campaign on the back of a FA Cup demolition against Burton where City scored a record breaking 9 goals. City are now back to chase Liverpool in the title race, while only 4 points adrift top leaders.
City face a flamboyant face in Wolves who have made the days of big clubs in Premier League a source of distress. After overcoming Mauricio Pohettino’s Tottenham in the Premier League, Nuni Espirito’s side kicked Liverpool out of the FA Cup.
Indeed, City have been vulnerable against the lower ranked clubs be it their 3-2 loss against Crystal Palace and 1-0 fall to Leicester City.
