Preview

A rough defeat to RB Leipzig in last outing brought an end to a seven-match winning run in all competitions for Manchester City.

In league play the last domestic defeat came at the hands of Crystal Palace back in October, but five successive league victories have moved the defending champions top of the Premier League table for the first time this season.

After winning five of their previous seven Premier League matches before a 0-0 draw with Norwich in late November, Wolves have failed to claim maximum points in each of their last three games.

Bruno Lage’s side currently sit eighth, but victory at the Etihad Stadium could move Saturday’s opponents up to sixth in the table. A cracking matchup is in store.

Which team will come out in front?
