Manchester City head to Molineux this weekend with the attempts to move on from their first loss of the season which saw the club fall to a defeat away to Newcastle United in their first EFL Cup encounter of the season.
City looked far from at their best in the midweek clash with the Magpies and ultimately failed to threaten the home team throughout. A goal from Alexander Isak in the second half won it for Newcastle, but this was the first game in which City have failed to score this season.
The Premier League champions are, however, still top of the table with all 18 points collected from the six games played, registering 16 goals and conceding just three - no side has a better defensive record while only Brighton & Hove Albion have a better goals difference.
Last time out, Erling Haaland was back amongst the goals once more, as the Norwegian scored his eighth goal of the season already in a 2-0 victory at home to Nottingham Forest. Phil Foden also bagged that day and this came just a few days on from the club's first win over Red Star Belgrade which saw Julian Alvarez score twice before Rodri netted in a comeback win.
He, however, is suspended for this game after his straight red card against Forest. Against Red Star, Pep Guardiola's men had a stunning 37 shots and 16 of those hit the target with 76% ball possession.
Further wins this season have seen City also beat Newcastle in the Premier League before wins over Sheffield United, Fulham and West Ham United. On the other hand, despite a 3-0 win over Burnley, this does now mean City have only put together two clean sheets from their six Premier League wins.
As for Wolves, it's been another rough start to the season for them with the club hovering just above the bottom three.
Wolves have won only one game so far, lost four and scored only five times and let in 12. Worse yet, the club failed ot beat Luton Town last time out and also lost to Ipswich Town in a 3-2 comeback victory for the Tractor Boys. Hwang Hee-chan scored that day before a finish from Toti Gomes. However, three goals thereafter for the Championship side won it for them.
