Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City have responded after a poor run and they narrowed the gap on second-place Leicester to keep alive their hopes of defending the title.
The gap remains a daunting 11 points though, with leaders Liverpool still possessing a game in hand, but behind Kevin De Bruyne’s sensational display against the Foxes, this feels like the beginning of a sustained run of wins to apply pressure to Jurgen Klopp’s side.
But Wolves are hardly the opposition Guardiola would have hoped to face at the beginning of a busy festive period, especially given they beat the Blues earlier this season at the Etihad and also held them at Molineux last season.
Nuno has bemoaned his side’s current predicament though, with just 45 hours between this game and their next contest against the league leaders.

What are the predicted line-ups?
Wolves: Patricio; Dendoncker, Coady, Saiss; Doherty, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny; Traore, Jimenez, Jota
Man City: Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Mendy; Rodri, Bernardo; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Sterling, Jesus
What is the team news?
Kevin de Bruyne is fit despite a scare towards the end of the Leicester game, but could be rested to avoid the risk of another serious injury, while Sergio Aguero is not fit enough to play 90 minutes yet. David Silva remains out, while Ilkay Gundogan is a doubt and John Stones (hamstring) remains out.
Adama Traore proved his shoulder issue is not bothering him substantially with 90 minutes last time out against Norwich. Nuno has no fresh issues but could rotate given the intensity of two games against City and Liverpool inside 45 hours, so Max Kilman, Jesus Vallejo, Ruben Vinagre, Pedro Neto and Patrick Cutrone could all be handed a chance through rotation. Willy Boly (ankle), Morgan Gibbs-White (back) and Bruno Jordao (ankle) are all still out injured.

A really tricky game for the champions, given Wolves have proven to be a tough match-up for them in recent years and they are also in form. We expect goals here and City to prevail 3-2 and remain alive in the title race.

Man City 4/11
