Manchester City hosts Wolverhampton at the Etihad Stadium on October 6, 2019 in English Premier League action.

“Soccer" Manchester City

After Liverpool’s 1-0 win over Sheffield United, the Reds were poised to take an 8-point lead in  the standings. But Manchester City stayed on Liverpool’s pace by producing a 3-1 win at Everton last Saturday. As it stands, Liverpool is currently at 21 points and Manchester City is at 16, or just five points behind.

Gabriel Jesus, Riadh Mahrez and Raheem Sterling were on target but it wasn’t easy as Everton played with aggression and had 8 shots on goal. Thankfully, City goalkeeper Ederson made key saves and it wasn’t until Mahrez and Sterling scored one goal each in the final 20 minutes to seal the deal for the champs. Despite the struggle, Manchester City showed its championship pedigree by finding a way to win. City has now won 53 out of their last 62 matches against teams outside the traditional Top 6.

Manchester City ranks 1st in the EPL in Goal Difference at +20. They have scored a Premier League-leading 27 goals this season while only conceding 7 goals this term, which is tied for 3rd overall. City is also ranked 1st in the league in assists with a total of 20 on the current season.

Sergio Aguero leads the team with 8 goals scored with two assists. Raheem Sterling has six goals in six matches while Bernardo Silva has four goals and one assist. Kevin De Bruyne is the team leader with a total of 8 assists on the season while goalkeeper Ederson has conceded seven goals with 20 saves in seven matches played.

“Soccer" Wolverhampton

The Wolverhampton Wolves claimed their first casualty of the season when they defeated Watford 2-0 in their last assignment. With the win, the Wolves temporarily moved out of the relegation spots at 13th place after flirting with the second to the last spot before their round seven assignment.

Matt Doherty scored his second goal of the season with a tap-in from a Pedro Neto pass in the 18th minute of play against Watford. Doherty also had a hand in their second goal of the match when he chipped a cross to Morgan Gibbs-White which goalkeeper Daryl Janmaat turned into an own goal scored.

The Wolves are tied for 13th in the league in Goal Difference at -2. They are also ranked 10th in scoring with a total of nine goals on the season. Wolverhampton is tied for 11th in the EPL with a total of 11 goals allowed and they are 14th in the Premier League with four assists this season.

Raul Jimemez leads the Wolves with two goals this season. Patrick Cutrone and Ruben Nieves have scored one goal each for Wolverhampton. Willy Boly and Joao Moutinho have delivered one assist each while goalkeeper Rui Patricio has allowed 11 goals and has 18 saves in seven appearances.

“Soccer" Who Wins?

Manchester City is ranked second in the EPL with a record of 5-1-1 SU on the season. The defending champions have won five straight matches across all competition and have four shutouts during that period. In their last EPL assignment, Manchester City defeated Everton 3-1.

Wolverhampton is the soccer betting underdog here. The Wolves are 1-4-2 SU on the season and 13th in the ladder. They have not lost in their last three matches across all competition and have conceded just  three goals in their last four matches played across all competition.

Manchester City is 2-1-0 SU in three home games this season while Wolverhampton is 1-2-1 SU in four road matches played. City has dominated their matchup against Wolverhampton. The defending EPL champions are 6-2-2 SU in their last 10 meetings, including four out of their last five games. In their most recent meeting held last January 14, 2019, Manchester City blanked Wolverhampton 3-0 at the Etihad Stadium.

I think Manchester City is too good for Wolverhampton. Not only have the champs dominated this matchup, they are also playing very well as of late. The Wolves head to this matchup after their first win of the season. Beating Watford must’ve felt good but Manchester City is at a different level. I think the home team wins easily here. Prediction: Manchester City
