Man City vs Wolves - Sat 22nd Aug 15:00 pm
In our first home game of the season we welcome newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers to Eastlands. It should be a great atmosphere tomorrow and I for one can not wait!
This is what we have all been waiting for, our chance to show our new players what Manchester City fans are all about. The day has finally come for City fans where we get to see a world class team walk out in our shirt and on our ground, it is about time!
I do not want to come across as if I am disrespecting our opponents tomorrow, but I am expecting a home win. No game is easy in the Prem but Wolves can no where near match us for quality, they haven't signed anyone of any quality really and I just can not see how they will cause us any problems. We should be thriving on confidence and put that together with the quality we have, then it should be three points for City.
The one thing Wolves definitely do have though is a work ethic, they will absolutely give 110% against us. If we do not match their work rate then they could force us to make our own mistakes. Overall I don't think we should have a problem taking three points tomorrow.
City Team News:
Roque Santa Cruz is out with a knee injury as are Kompany (toe) and Johnson (abdominal). Robinho (ankle) and Adebayor (groin) may also miss out. Wayne Bridge should shake off a hamstring injury in time to be fit for the game.
Wolves Team News:
Christophe Berra (hamstring) and Kevin Doyle (groin) are expected to give Wolves a boost and return to the bench. Sylvan Ebanks-Blake (hamstring), right-back Kevin Foley (knee), Chris Iwelumo (foot) and Michael Kightly (foot and hip) are all out.
Possible Man City Line Up: Given, Richards, Toure, Dunne, Bridge, Wright-Phillips, Barry, Ireland, Bellamy, Robinho, Adebayor.
Possible Wolves Line Up: Hennessey, Stearman, Craddock, Mancienne, Halford, Henry, Milijas, Jarvis, Edwards, Ward, Keogh.
My Prediction: Man City 4 - 0 Wolves
Worth A Bet: Gareth Barry and Wright-Phillips score in a 4 - 0 City win.
