Manchester City face off against Wolves on Saturday afternoon as they travel to Molineux Stadium. The Sky Blue come into the match on the back of an emphatic 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund in the second match of the UCL group stages. The Mancunian giants will look to produce a similar display in the Premier League clash.
Pep Guardiola would opt for the 4-3-3 formation with Manuel Akanji continuing in the backline and Phil Foden returning to the left-wing position in the frontline.
4-3-3 Manchester City Predicted Lineup Vs Wolves
Ederson Moraes will operate in between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Brazilian shot-stopper will hope to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday. Ruben Dias will form the centre-half partnership with Manuel Akanji at the heart of the City’s backline.
Joao Cancelo might start at the right-back position, whereas Sergio Gomez will fill in on the other flank as the left-back. The full-backs will be expected to stretch the opposition and keep their shape defensively.
John Stones would provide cover from the bench as he waits for his opportunity to feature in the latter half of the game.
Rodri is a guaranteed starter in the holding midfield position; he’ll be tasked with shielding the backline and distributing possession to his teammates efficiently.
Ilkay Gundogan and Kevin De Bruyne will slot into the central midfield position. The duo would be determined to set up some clear-cut goal-scoring chances for the frontmen making forward runs into the opposition backline.
Kalvin Phillips will have to settle for a spot on the bench, but he could come on to make an impact in the second half.
Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right wing respectively, trying to cut inside and create chances in front of the goal.
Erling Haaland will lead the charge for the Etihad club this weekend. The Norwegian international will continue on his excellent run of form trying to find the back of the net as he faces off against the Wolves defence.
