Verdict

Wolves can catch Man City out on their return to action. They won both games last season and, with game time under their belt this season, are too big a price against a City side which has not played in more than a month. The double chance is the best bet with Wolves outright a value option.

Adama Traore troubled City last season with three goals across the two games and is worth backing in the goalscorer markets.
