Tip Wolves - Manchester City
Manchester City had a big win over Leicester on Saturday but they need to keep winning. City are third in the Premier League but 11 points behind Liverpool from a game more and now travel to sixth placed Wolverhampton Wanderers. City and Wolves had similar Saturday's, both coming from behind to get their win. Pep Guardiola's team have won three of their last four league games, the other being a home loss to Manchester United. They will need to go on a lengthy winning run to get anywhere Liverpool but a win at Wolves could take them into second, if Leicester can't beat Liverpool. Away form for City has seen them win their last two with seven goals scored. Only one of their last six away league games has been lost and that was away to Liverpool.
Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking to complete the league double over their opponents. They won 2-0 away at City earlier in the season, just as they were starting their improvement in form. After being in the relegation zone at one stage, Wolves are now sixth and in with a reasonable chance of getting another season of European football, perhaps even in the Champions League. They have only one loss in their last 11 league and cup games, a last-gasp defeat by Tottenham at home. Only one of their last three home league games have been won and with City likely to have Aguero on the pitch at some point, the tip here is for an away win.
Key points Wolves - Manchester City

Conclusion Wolves - Manchester City

City can be backed to get an away win in this game, most likely taking them to second in the Premier League.
