The Citizens are on a roll and are looking to extend their win-streak to 21-games as they host the Wolverhampton Wanderers tonight. City got its 20th win on Saturday afternoon against West Ham in a 2-1 success. West Ham is a solid team and is searching for a spot in the top 4 but City played a much better match and held on for the win.
Manchester City is currently 13-points clear of the Premier League table and is the favorite to continue the streak against a far weaker Wolves squad that currently sits in 12th place but is on a streak of their own.
Wolves are unbeaten in their last five matches and after a disappointing draw against Newcastle over the weekend, they are looking to get back in the winner's column.
Pep Guardiola has told his team that they should expect a tough match against Wolves and not get complacent. “It is so difficult,” he commented. “To have 20 wins in this period, I think this could be the greatest achievement we have done.
“It doesn’t mean we have won the title of course, but in wintertime in England, every three days a game, COVID-19 situation, injuries... winning, winning, winning shows strength, mentally."
A Surprising Record
Wolves have been a tough team for City to crack over the years. In their last five matches against each other in the Premier League, both teams have won twice and they had a draw. This is surprising when thinking about how strong City has been over recent years.
