The Premier League champions are in need of three points to keep their title hopes alive

Manchester City will attempt to maintain their place in the Premier League title race on Sunday when they take on Wolves.

Pep Guardiola's team have fallen five points behind Arsenal, who have a game in hand, in the battle for the English crown.

Man City vs Wolves latest odds

City are not in great form in the Premier League of late but they did beat Tottenham 4-2 in midweek and are obvious favourites to win this game at odds of 1/5 (1.20) with bet365.

The away team managed to beat West Ham in their latest match but are still dangerously close to the relegation zone. They are the underdogs and are offered at the price of 10/1 (11.00) with the draw at 7/1 (8.00).

Man City vs Wolves first goal scorer odds

City striker Erling Haaland brought an end to a three-game goalless run when he struck against Spurs this week and is the favourite to get the first goal of this game at 15/8 (2.88). Team-mate Julian Alvarez is available at 7/2 (4.50).

Wolves star Raul Jimenez is their lowest-priced player to open the scoring at 14/1 (15.00) while Diego Costa is 16/1 (17.00).

Man City vs Wolves preview

The pressure is on both of these teams for very different reasons.

City are chasing three points to ensure they remain with a chance of catching Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table.

Wolves, meanwhile, need a victory to crawl further away from the relegation zone, as they sit just two points above the bottom three.

The visitors have gone through a bit of an improvement of late, however, having taken seven points from their last four matches - the same number of points City have collected in the same number of league matches.

Man City vs Wolves tips and predictions

City have not been in the greatest of form lately but they should be too strong for Wolves, so backing them to win with a -1 handicap at odds of 4/7 (1.57) looks a good bet, while -2 is priced at 7/5 (2.40).
