Venue: Molineux Stadium.
Manchester City play their first game of the Premier League season on Monday evening as Pep Guardiola’s men visit Molineux to take on Wolves.
The side from the Black Country won both of their encounters with City last season and have been something of a bogey team for the Citizens who have won just one of their last five meetings in all competitions.

Wolves vs Manchester City: Prediction
After having their opening game postponed due to their exploits in the Champions League in August, Man City kick off their Premier League campaign with a tough opening fixture against Wolves. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men picked up an opening win against Sheffield United and they are one team that have been able to find a way to play against City. They did the double over them last season and with two competitive matches under their belts ahead of City, that could see them have the edge in sharpness too. City will be desperate even in this opener not to drop points and that should lead to an open game. They remain fragile at the back which will hand Wolves chances so consider both teams to score, but the hosts do offer tempting value draw no bet in this opening match.
