Confirmed Line-Ups: Manchester City vs Wolves (Premier League)



| Last Updated:


Manchester City will look to move to within just three wins over yet another Premier League title with victory over Wolves at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday evening.

Arsenal have set the pace early on this weekend, having cruised past the challenge of the in-form Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium, ensuring that they will remain top of the division for another weekend.

Manchester City are likely to be presented with a stern challenge this weekend, following on from their 0-2 win over Nottingham Forest last time around. However, Gary O’Neil will not be present in the dugout for his side.

The Wolves boss has been issued with a one-match touchline ban by the Football Association, having accepted charges based on his behaviour and comments during a 1-2 home defeat to West Ham United in early April.

As for team news, Pep Guardiola revealed during his pre-match press conference on Friday afternoon that all of Ederson, Ruben Dias, and Phil Foden had recovered from injury and illness respectively to become available for the Champions this weekend.

Erling Haaland is also available to start for Manchester City following his recent fitness struggles, having returned to action with a goal last weekend to seal the points at the City Ground with a second-half strike.

Ahead of kick-off at the Etihad Stadium, here is how both Pep Guardiola and Gary O’Neil line-up their respective Manchester City and Wolves sides in the Premier League on Saturday evening.
