Wolverhampton faces Manchester City on Monday, September 21st at Molineux Stadium for an English Premier League match.
Wolverhampton took down Sheffield United on the road by the final score of 2-0 in Wolves' first match of the season. Wolverhampton was one of the most surprising clubs in the 2019-20 Premier League season, and Wolves will look to repeat its success from a season ago. Wolverhampton returns many of the key pieces that the club featured last season, such as Adama Traore and Raul Jimenez. Jimenez scored the first goal of the campaign for Wolverhampton in the 3rd minute of the match against Sheffield United, as it was a fast start to the season for Wolves. Wolverhampton will now be put to the test when the club faces a tough Manchester City club at Molineux.
Manchester City will be playing in its first match of the Premier League season on Monday. Manchester City was arguably the strongest club in the Premier League after the COVID-19 stoppages, as the club basically ran the table in Premier League action. Liverpool was so far ahead in the standings that Manchester City had no real shot of winning the Premier League crown, despite City's unbelievable play in the latter stages of the season. Now, there is a clean slate for every club in the league, and Manchester City feels it is more than capable of grabbing the Premier League title in the 2020-21 season.
The last time Wolverhampton and Manchester City met was on December 27th of 2019, in which Wolverhampton stunned Manchester City with an impressive comeback in a 3-2 win at Molineux. Wolverhampton has won two of the last five matches the club has played against Manchester City, while Manchester City has only one once.
Although Wolverhampton has won the last two matches it has played against Manchester City, Wolves remains a big underdog even at home. I think Wolverhampton deserves a lot more respect than they have been given in this spot, and I think the best play here is to take Wolverhampton against the spread. Getting a goal at +100 odds with a solid team at home is more than I could ask for in this match.
