2022-23 Premier League: Week Seven – Wolves vs Manchester City

Wolves welcome title-chasing Manchester City to Molineux in a Premier League clash.

Victory could lift Wolves into the top half of the Premier League table, whereas Man City will go top with a win due to Arsenal not playing until Sunday lunchtime.

Wolves have no fresh injury concerns to report as Diego Costa looks for his first start after joining on a free transfer.

Chiquinho and Sasa Kalajdzic (both knee) and Raul Jimenez (groin/adductor) remain absent.

Man City have no fresh injury concerns to report as Kyle Walker (knock) and Aymeric Laporte (knee) both remain unlikely to feature, unless the pair pass late fitness tests.


Stat Attack

  • Wolves have won two of their last six meetings against Man City (W2, L4).
  • Man City have lost just one of their last five visits to Molineux (W3, D1, L1).
  • City’s Kevin De Bruyne has scored five goals across his last two visits to Molineux (W2).
  • Wolves have conceded just one goal in three Premier League matches at home this season (W1, D2).
  • Erling Haaland has scored four goals in City’s three domestic away matches this season (W1, D2).



Having enjoyed a fairly solid if slightly sluggish start to the season results wise amidst decent defending, Wolves’ biggest issue remains their attack with numerous wasted chances especially in their narrow win over Southampton last time out despite excellent attacking turnovers from interceptions.

Man City meanwhile are still unbeaten despite scraping a Champions League win over Borussia Dortmund in midweek, although they did look slightly rusty in the first-half with poor end product due to last weekend’s postponement but I do expect them to be on top form coming to Molineux.

Stubborn defending and clinical finishing will therefore be key to Wolves’ chances of a result here because if they play like they did at Tottenham last month with wasteful attacks, I can see them being ruthlessly punished by this fierce Man City team.

Prediction: Wolves 0-2 Manchester City

Result: Wolves 0-3 Manchester City
