21st September 2020 – 21:15, Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton
Wolves and Manchester City are going to wrap up the 2nd round of the Premier League with a Monday evening clash. The hosts want to put another good display in the competition, while the away side is looking forward to booking their first three points.
Match Preview & Team News
Wolves were unlucky to stay without a ticket for Europa League last season as they lost in the closing match of the Premier League campaign and allowed Tottenham Hotspur to take their place. However, at that point, they still had the chance to participate in continental competitions once again, but Arsenal lifted the FA Cup trophy and ruined Wolves’ chances. The home side kicked-off a new campaign with a 2:0 away victory over Sheffield United. Two quick goals scored by Raul Jimenez and Romain Saiss were enough for clinching all three points. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side played very well at the Molineux Stadium last season as they lost only four times at their ground. The hosts want to rechallenge the top seven spots, and we will see how they can perform against one of the title favorites.
This game is going to be the first one for Manchester City this season. The visitors had an extra week off due to their participation in the Champions League quarter-finals. However, the Citizens suffered a shocking 3:1 defeat against Lyon and missed the chance to challenge the most significant trophy in European football. Pep Guardiola’s side finished as the runner-up last time in the Premiership, and they were pretty far from the title battle. This time, they want to be more competitive, and Kevin de Bruyne and the lads want to have a good start of the campaign. Manchester City has been terrific in the final third last season as they managed to score 102 times in 38 rounds. If they can keep up the form, the visitors will be one of the leading contenders.
