Tshepo’s picks

The Citizen (KZN) - - SPORT -

Manch­ester City wel­come Wolver­hamp­ton Wan­der­ers hav­ing en­joyed some pro­lific form in their re­cent matches in the English Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup.

City wel­come Wolves at the Eti­had Sta­dium as they look to close the gap on lead­ers Liver­pool.

Pep Guardi­ola’s men are sec­ond on the ta­ble with 50 points after 21 games hav­ing beaten Liver­pool and then scored 16 goals in their last two matches – seven against Rotherham United and nine against Bur­ton Al­bion.

They will be look­ing for a fourth con­sec­u­tive home win against Wolves.

Nuno Espírito Santo’s side are ninth with 29 points but a neg­a­tive goal dif­fer­ence does not do them any favours as they meet a goal­hun­gry City.

Wolves come into this game hav­ing beaten Liver­pool 2-1 in the third round of the FA Cup.

There is so much at stake for both teams in this clash, but I will def­i­nitely put my money on a City win.
