Manchester City vs Wolves

Manchester City and Wolves are set to go head-to-head in Saturday’s early Premier League kick-off.

The tie is a must-win for Manchester City. The Sky Blues would claim top spot from Chelsea in gameweek 15 after seeing off Watford.

However, it is still incredibly tight atop of the Premier League at present, with just two points separating 1st and 3rd.

So, given Liverpool’s impressive form and Chelsea’s easy fixture, anything but a win against Wolves would likely see Pep Guardiola and co. fall from the PL summit this weekend.

Picking up a win against Wolves is easier said than done though. Bruno Lage’s side do not score many goals, but they are a tough nut to crack, with a late Divock Origi strike the only reason Liverpool were able to pick up a win against them last weekend.

Pep Guardiola on Phil Foden & Erling Haaland

Ahead of the Wolves tie, Pep Guardiola would speak to the press on Friday afternoon.

When doing so, Guardiola spoke out on a number of topics, including team news. Guardiola would be asked about the fitness of Nathan Ake and Phil Foden, to which he stated:

“We will assess this afternoon at training.”

Guardiola then added more detail on Foden’s case:

“Phil Foden – still has niggle but every time he plays he will get better and better. He will say how he feels. Knowing Phil he’ll want to be there for us so we’ll see, game-by-game.”

The City boss was also asked about Erling Haaland following Mino Raiola’s comments that the Sky Blues were one of the four clubs the striker could go to, but Pep did not wish to answer:

“Don’t ask me about Erling Haaland, I won’t answer.”
