WOL vs MCI Dream11 Match Prediction: Though Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side might be 11 points adrift from league leaders Liverpool, they have managed to win two big games against Arsenal followed by Leicester City. However, the domestic champions upcoming fixture is also a tricky one as they fave a resilient Wolverhampton Wanderers unit.
Wolves currently reside at the sixth spot with 27 points and have already beaten Manchester City at the Etihad this season thanks to Adama Traore who scored a brace in early October this year.
Date- Saturday, December 28 | Kick-Off- 1:15 AM (IST) | Venue- Molineux Stadium
Nunu Espirito Santo has a fit squad available for selection ahead of the big game versus City. There is a possibility of Nuno going with the same eleven which featured in the 2-1 win over Norwich over the weekend.
Sergio Aguero was on the bench against Leicester City after returning from injury and could make it into the starting eleven. However, Gabriel Jesus’ recent form suggests that Pep Guardiola will have a tough decision to make as to who leads the attack. Rodrigo should return to the midfield while David Silva sits out due to injury. With John Stones ruled out due to a hamstring issue, Otamendi and Fernandinho should continue at centre-back. Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling are likely to feature in the flanks.
