Manchester City FC
After losing their October 30 game against Crystal Palace, Manchester City (10-2-2, 32 points) has strung up victories against Manchester United, Everton, West Ham United and Aston Villa to move to second place, one point behind table-toppers Chelsea. In these wins, City has placed a premium on defense as they allowed only two goals. This solid defensive stance has put them second in goals allowed behind Chelsea. Their offense isn’t too shabby either as they are third in the league with 29 goals scored.
City’s offense is balanced with Bernardo Silva pacing the team on five goals scored. Eight other players Ilkay Gundogan, Phil Foden, Rodri, Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Sterling, Riyad Mahrez, Kevin De Bruyne and Ferran Torres have netted at least two goals for City, showing the equality in Pep Guardiola’s offensive scheme. Ederson is expected to man the pipes for Manchester City as he already has seven clean sheets in 13 outings.
Players to Watch: Bernardo Silva (5 goals, 1 assist); Ilkay Gundogan (3 goals, 1 assist); Phil Foden (3 goals, 1 assist); Gabriel Jesus (2 goals, 6 assists); Raheem Sterling (2 goals, 1 assist), Riyad Mahrez (2 goals, 1 assist).
Wolverhampton Wanderers FC
Currently in eighth place, the Wolves (6-3-5, 21 points) must score more to move at the top of the leaderboard. However, this has not been the story in the past two games as they settled for scoreless draws against Norwich City and Burnley. In their last game against Burnley, Wolverhampton secured 65% of the possessions and uncorked 16 shots but they failed to capitalize. The result gave them a point and moved to a tie with Manchester United in seventh at 21 points.
They are also a point behind sixth-placed Tottenham Hotspur and two points behind Arsenal. A win would put Wolverhampton in contention for the top four in the table, if West Ham, Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester United failed in their next assignments. The Wolves will look for South Korean Hwang Hee-chan and Mexican Raul Jimenez in offense while Jose Sa will man the pipes for the squad as he has already collected five clean sheets in 14 starts.
Players to Watch: Hwang Hee-chan (4 goals); Raul Jimenez (3 goals, 2 assists); Daniel Podence (2 assists); Max Kilmamn (1 goal); Conor Coady (1 goal); Romain Saiss (1 goal); Ruben Neves (1 goal).
