Current league Champions to scrape a narrow win
<div><h2 style="text-align:center">Wolves vs Man City</h2><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/eng/premier-league/manchester-city-vs-wolverhampton-wanderers-3841544/" target="_blank" title="Game Odds"><strong>Friday, 27th December at Molineux</strong></a></p><p> </p><h2>Wolves</h2><p>Wolves are all about possession and probing until they find your weakness. Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho pull the strings all over the park. The enigmatic Adama Traore can cause any defender in the world trouble with his pace, the trick for him is to calm down and not try and deliver when travelling flat out. Raul Jimenez is a high quality forward who is the focal point of all attacks and if left unmarked in the box will punish you. Nuno Espirito Santo has developed a good bunch of players who can adapt to playing on the break or probe until the right opportunity arises. The late goals that have been scored show that there is patience and a belief that their philosophy will pay off. The full backs are a lot more comfortable going forward than sitting in and playing long balls. Wolves are a good side at home that maybe just lack that extra fairy dust.</p><p><strong>KEY Strengths</strong>: Patience, Passing and Quality individuals</p><p><strong>KEY Weakness</strong>: Set pieces and switching off in full back areas</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%;height:12px" /></a></p><h2>Man City</h2><p>Pep Guardiola has injuries to a few star men over the Christmas period. Sergio Aguero is the main absentee with Gabriel Jesus a more than able deputy. Raheem Sterling continues to be a constant goal threat on the end of the world class ammunition supplied by Kevin de Bruyne. Fernandinho playing in the centre of defence is makeshift and a huge loss to the midfield’s ability to stop at source the opposing attacks. Goals are not the problem for last year’s champions, keeping clean sheets most definitely is. Riyad Mahrez has the chance to get a run in the starting line-up and contribute to goals by way of cutting inside from the right or assisting with his trickery. Ilkay Gundogan is responsible for sniffing and snuffing out the oppositions breaks when City lose possession. He can be caught too far up field and out of the game at times. It is all about just finding a way to win from now until the end of the season for this group after too many slip ups have left them miles behind Liverpool.</p><p><strong>KEY Strengths</strong>: De Bruyne, Sterling, Creativity</p><p><strong>KEY Weakness</strong>: Over loading, Set-Pieces</p><p> </p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>It’s all about City getting the win and not by how many. Wolves will set up to frustrate City and wait for their chance. De Bruyne will again be the ring master and the main hope of delivering the goods to bring home the three points. I expect both teams to score and City to just edge it. Wolves score very late goals on a regular occurrence so your fate may not be sealed until the final whistle blows.</p><p><strong>Best Tips:</strong></p><ul> <li>Man City to win by 1 goal @3.6 with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Unibet Today!">Unibet</a></li> <li>Both Teams to score and over 2.5 goals @2.10 with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></li></ul></div>
