Manchester City vs Wolves: Latest City team news and predicted City starting eleven

Manchester City faces another pivotal Premier League fixture today at home against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Pep Guardiola’s side will be looking for another three points to keep their title destiny in their own hands. But Gary O’Neil’s side will be looking to repeat their 2-1 victory over Manchester City from earlier this season. Another big game awaits the champions at the Etihad later today.

Manchester City team news

Pep Guardiola confirmed yesterday during his pre-game press conference that he has a full squad available for today’s game. The City manager confirmed that Ederson, Phil Foden, and Ruben Dias are all available for selection today.

Ederson picked up a shoulder injury during City’s win over Nottingham Forest last weekend. But he returned to training this week and appears available to play if selected by Pep Guardiola later today. Phil Foden and Ruben Dias missed last weekend’s match due to illness, but both are available for today’s critical Premier League encounter at the Etihad.

Predicted Manchester City starting eleven

Stefan Ortega: It appears a 50/50 selection of Ederson starts today’s game. But I believe Pep Guardiola will take a cautious approach given the quality Stefan Ortega provides in goal when called upon.

Kyle Walker: City‘s captain hasn’t been at his best of late but should start today. His pace may be needed given Wolves’ threat on the counter.

Manuel Akanji: The Swiss international hasn’t put a foot wrong of late. His recent form should see him start again today.

Nathan Ake: Ake’s partnership with Akanji has helped solidify City’s defence recently. He should start again today.

Jokso Gvardiol: The Croatian international has become City’s go-to left-back. He is almost an automatic selection for Pep Guardiola now.

Rodri: It is a given that Rodri starts today. He will once again have a vital role to play for the champions.

Bernardo Silva: City’s Mr. Fix it will likely start again today. Whether it’s on the wing or in midfield, he will have a crucial role to play.

Kevin De Bruyne: City‘s inspirational midfielder has been one of City’s major driving forces of late. He should start again today, given his impressive recent displays.

Phil Foden: The FWA Men’s Footballer of the Year should return to the City starting lineup today. After missing last weekend’s game, he could be hungry to show why he was a worth recipient of the FWA Men’s Footballer of the Year award.

Jack Grealish: Manchester City are at their best with Grealish in the starting eleven. He should start today in a must win game for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Erling Haaland: Haaland returned with a bang last weekend in one of his better performances for some time. He could be set for a big game today if he brings that form to the Etihad this afternoon.
