The side with the best defensive record in the Premier League should be able to frustrate the champions on Saturday afternoon

Manchester City travel to Molineux to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon, with the reigning Premier League champions clear favourites to record another victory.

Pep Guardiola's side are unbeaten in the English top flight since February and have not long away from the Etihad stadium since August 2021.

Wolves meanwhile ended a 12-match winless streak in the league last time out against Southampton, but have lost their last four matches against City.

The hosts are offered at 8/1 (9.00) with bet365 to pull off what would be a major shock, while the visitors can be backed at 4/11 (1.36) to record their fifth win of the season.

The draw is available at 4/1 (5.00).

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Manchester City first goal scorer odds

Erling Haaland is on track for a potentially historic goal tally given the way he has started life as a City player and the Norwegian is understandably well-fancied to score first at Molineux.

The former Borussia Dortmund striker can be backed at 12/5 (3.40) to break the deadlock ahead of Julian Alvarez at 7/2 (4.50), while Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez are both offered at 13/2 (7.50).

For the hosts Raul Jimenez can be backed at 11/1 (12.00), while Diego Costa who could make his debut for Wolves is available at 12/1 (13.00).

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Manchester City preview

The visitors will be confident of claiming another victory although Wolves could make life tough for Pep Guardiola's men.

The side coached by Bruno Lage have conceded just four times this term, boasting the best defensive record in the division so far, although they have faced generally quite modest opponents.

Nevertheless, against a City side who played in midweek and were made to work extremely hard by Borussia Dortmund, Wolves might be able to at least keep the score down against the Premier League champions.

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Manchester City tips and predictions

City to win and under 2.5 goals looks like a tempting value bet at 3/1 (4.00) while opposing a goal before the 25th minute at 5/6 (1.83) could also be of interest.
