Betting tips Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Manchester City

Wolves to show Man City their teeth

Wolves are one club looking to benefit from an open top-four this season. Can they prove their credentials as Man City visit Molineux? Have a read of our preview here:

The Christmas Espirito

Wolves, along with Sheffield United and Leicester City, have been another side pushing the sides at the top to reassess where they stand in the world of English football.

Once described as the champions of the world, Wolverhampton have not been a relevant team in those sort of conversations for a number of decades yet with ambitious owners and an excellent manager, they have started to change people’s opinions.

With such a busy schedule over the Christmas period, Wolves could find themselves entrenched in the top-four by New Year. They head into the game against City off the back of an important victory at lowly Norwich. They left it late again with Raul netting in the last 10 minutes to seal the win.

Jimenez has been directly involved in 12 goals (seven goals and five assists) for Wolves in the Premier League this season, double that of any team-mate.

The Mexican striker has been one of the key players in the rise of Nuno’s side this season as has goalkeeper Rui Patricio who was forced into a number of important saves at Carrow Road.

It means Wolves have lost just once in the last 13 league games and a recent run of four wins in seven has put them on the cusp of a Champions League spot. If they can get a result or even a win against Man City, it will open up a world of possibility for 2020 amongst the dreaming Molineux faithful.

De Bruyne the invincible

“He’s an incredible fighter, the way he runs and playing in that position he is free to attack and he helps our high pressing a lot with his intensity.

“He lives close to the goal and is an exceptional player.”

Guardiola summed up De Bruyne’s impact for City against Leicester at the weekend and he was right to give the Belgian star praise. He has been City’s best player this season and continues to be a key man for Pep’s side.

Kevin de Bruyne became the first player to register double figures for assists before Christmas in a single Premier League campaign since Arsenal's Mesut Ozil in 2015-16 (15).

It will be interesting to see if De Bruyne can go on to break some records in 2020 but he certainly lights up whatever match he plays in.

Wolves v Man City betting tip

With attacking talent on show it will be a game likely full of entertainment and, hopefully, goals. That’s why we are tipping this one to finish with over 2.5 goals at odds of 8/13 with 888sport.
