Match Preview and Thread: Wolves @ City

Manchester City do battle with Wolves in a few hours at City of Manchester Stadium, with a chance to at least temporarily go top of the table with a victory. New acquisition Edin Dzeko is set to make his debut, and it'll be interesting to see not necessarily where he slots, but how Roberto Mancini fits everyone in around him. 

City, of course, should not take Wolves for granted, despite their battle with relegation. Wolves are a physical, no holds barred side, and given the chance could really play spoiler to City's game of possession in the midfield. 

Of course, if Manchester City are on their game, few teams in the Premier League can stay on the pitch with them. The hope is that the Blues treat this as not a game against a weaker opponent, but yet another "must-win" in the race for the title.
