Resurgent Man City resume title quest against in-form Wolves

Even long-term injury victim Benjamin Mendy is making progress and expected to return to the fold shortly.

Meanwhile second-placed City will want to close the seven-point gap at the top of the table created by Liverpool’s 1-0 win away to Brighton on Saturday when they face Wolves.

However Nuno Espirito Santo’s side held City to a creditable 1-1 draw earlier in the season at Molineux and drew 1-1 at the Etihad in last season’s League Cup when they were still a Championship club.

“We realised when we played the EFL (English Football League) Cup and the first away game how complicated it would be,” said Guardiola of the threat posed by high-flyers Wolves.

“They are strong physically, counter-attack, set-pieces. There is not just one or two, there are three or four (Wolves players) and when you are tired, they can put on new players.”

He added: “They defend well, deep, they control many areas — Moutinho, Neves, he can shoot from a long way. They are newly-promoted and doing incredibly well.”
