| Last Updated:


Manchester City host Wolves at the Etihad Stadium as they look to once again react to Arsenal’s pace-setting as the Gunners defeated Bournemouth in the 12:30 kick-off.

Pep Guardiola and his players come into the clash on a run of sensational form, currently in the midst of a remarkable 31-game unbeaten run stretching back to mid-December and their defeat to Aston Villa in the Premier League.

The direction of the English top-flight title remains in the hands of Manchester City despite Arsenal sitting at the top of the division, with the reigning Champions knowing that should they win all of their remaining four matches, they will be crowned winners once again.

City are chasing history as always under Pep Guardiola, as they look to not only become the first side in the history of the Premier League to win the title in four successive seasons, but also retain the domestic double through an FA Cup final.

City take on cross-town rivals Manchester United in their final game of the ongoing campaign, in a repeat of the 2023 FA Cup final that saw Pep Guardiola’s side go on to claim a historic Treble through the UEFA Champions League title in Istanbul.

Ahead of kick-off at the Etihad Stadium, a number of sources have began offering information surrounding Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City line-up for the visit of Wolves, with the first details provided by Simon Bajkowski.

According to the Manchester Evening News, and journalist Simon Bajkowski, Manuel Akanji starts in defence for Manchester City against Wolves, while Pep Guardiola also has a fully-fit squad at his disposal for the contest.

Oscar Bobb is the player who misses out for Manchester City as a result, as highlighted by Joe Bray.

In additional information from the ever-reliable X user FplToni, Ederson, Kyle Walker, Josko Gvardiol, Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden, and Erling Haaland all start for Manchester City against Wolves.

Pep Guardiola and Gary O’Neil are expected to name their respective Manchester City and Wolves line-ups from 16:30 (UK) on Saturday afternoon.
