Manchester City are hosting Wolves tonight aiming to extend their winning run to 21 games in all competitions. Doing so would lift Pep Guardiola’s side 15 points clear of their nearest rivals Manchester United and in a commanding position to win the title back from Liverpool, albeit they will have played one more game their the chasing pack after tonight’s encounter.

It is no foregone conclusion, however, against a visiting Wolves side who have found form in recent weeks, going five games without defeat, including wins over Arsenal, Southampton and Leeds. Nuno Espirito Santo seems to have found a way of playing that suits his team despite the ongoing absence of key striker Raul Jimenez who is still unfit to play following a head injury earlier in the season. Nuno will need big performances on the counter-attack from Adama Traore and the constantly impressive Pedro Neto to pull off a shock result tonight.
