Wolves vs Man City

By Wolves
August 25 2018

Wolves face the 2017-18 Champions Man City at Molineux in a major challenge to their Premier League plans

Pep Guardiola brings his team of Champions to Molineux in an attempt to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League, whilst Wolves will be hoping to add to their single point achieved at home two weeks ago.

Wolves start with the same team as at Leicester last week:

Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Neves Moutinho, Jonny, Jota, Jimenez, Costa

 

Subs: Ruddy, Hause, Saiss, Vinagre, Gibbs-White, Bonatini and Traore

 

Some fans were hoping to see Jonny move to the right wing and Vinagre come in on the left wing after Doherty's gernerally poor performance at Leicester, and perhaps Traore come in to replace Costa, but Nuno is stickinmg with his 'first team'.

Nobody outside of Wolves gives us a prayer.13/1 to win at home??!!

Maybe it’s a case of gold coloured specs but despite appreciating we are underdogs to a fine Man City side, I do believe we have a Derek Parkin of a chance!

I.e. A Squeak!

Really good match. Fabulous save from Rui. So frustrating Jimenez drifted offside.

City are menacing and we offer more than a threat

Get the impression Man City are turning the screw on us a bit. We are working hard though but our attacking force has lessened in the last 8-10 minutes.

Poor clearance by Doc gives Fernandinho a chance but he shoots wide. We're getting penned back a bit too much at the moment. Another attempt by Ruben from outside the box goes wide. Lots of good passing by Wolves but not incisive enough.
Costa earns a corner with good play

One minute added time played out and it's half time after a very entertaining first half. Wolves have managed to contain City's huge threat and mounted some good attacks. Now we need to keep it up for another 45 minutes

Wolves 0 City 0

Great work down the left by Jota and perfect ball across the area but nobody there until Doc earns a corner. Ten minutes to go plus AT

Aguero hits the bar with free kick. Thank you Lord!!

That's it we make a draw with the Champions. A great entertaining game and Wolves thoroughly deserved their point.

Very good match, very good Wolves performance versus an excellent side. Whilst City possibly had more of the chances, I’m going to say that after taking the lead, I am slightly disappointed we didn’t get all 3 points!

Well played Wolves ....... first win next week by any chance?

Good to see Boly and Costa play more like we know they can. Better from Doherty too.
