Manchester City take on the visitors Wolverhampton in the round 21 match of English Premier League. The match will be played on Sunday, January 22nd at Etihad Stadium (Manchester).
Manchester City are not particularly good at catching up. "Citizens", such impression, lulled themselves. In some ways, their mentality can be explained. And so, by far, the strongest team in England, they got Haaland in the summer, and he also riveted goals even more actively than expected. Well, what doubts were there that the eternal loser, Arsenal, would be overtaken “at a distance” in the end? But even after a pause, in winter, Pep Guardiola's wards only increased the backlog. They managed not to win against weak Everton and lost in the derby to Manchester United, although they opened the scoring on both occasions. In addition, the favorite got eliminated in the quarter-finals of the League Cup, losing to terribly playing in the championship Southampton. Moreover, Tottenham were allowed to score twice in the 1st half. But then the Citizens managed to win 4-2.

Wolverhampton clearly do not see their situation as hopeless. The Wolves “celebrated" Christmas in last place. After a relatively good last season, they started the new one poorly, and the dismissal of Bruno Lage, combined with Lopetegui's long persuasion to take his place, made the situation stalemate. Moreover, Julen, having arrived in November, only beat Leeds in the League Cup to begin with, continuing to lose in the championship. But the Spaniard managed the protracted break perfectly. Immediately after coming out of the pause, it turned out in a strong-willed style to beat a direct competitor, Everton. Then the Wolves shared points with Aston Villa and scored the maximum with another opponent, West Ham. They also butted heads in the cup: they had to beat Liverpool at Anfield, but got only a draw. But then, in replay match, they lost this week at home 0-1.
Recently, head-to-head fights have not been successful for the Wolves: Manchester City won 5 times in a row against Wolverhampton. The City crushed today’s visitors 3-0 at Molineux in September. The City are the clear favourite, but there may be trouble confirming this. Let's settle on "over 3.0 goals".
Prediction for the match: Over 3.0 scored goals.
