The Manchester derby takes place on Wednesday and City know a win at Old Trafford will hand them the initiative in the Premier League title race.
They trail Liverpool by two points but have had this game in hand for a while and a win over United will see them take the lead with just three games left to play.
Wolves host Arsenal in Wednesday’s other game and both will be desperate for all three points to boost their respective European hopes
City claimed a 1-0 win over Spurs on Saturday and should head to United in confident mood despite their Champions League exit last week.
Pep Guardiola‘s men won the corresponding fixture 2-1 last season and beat United 3-1 at home earlier in the campaign.
This may be the ideal time to face United, who have lost six of their last eight games in all competitions and looked jaded in a 4-0 defeat at Everton over the weekend.
If City get an early goal the floodgates could well open and a -1 handicap for the visitors appeals in this derby encounter.
Wolves‘ form has dipped in recent weeks and they head into the visit of Arsenal seeking to end a three-game winless run, which began when they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Watford.
The Molineux side still have a chance to finish seventh and potentially qualify for the Europa League – and they tend to up their game against the bigger teams.
Wolves’ last win came against Manchester United, while they’ve also beaten Spurs, Liverpool – in the FA Cup – and Chelsea this season, as well as claiming a point at the Emirates earlier in the campaign.
Arsenal may have won their last two on the road but their away form remains a concern. At a big price, Wolves look good value on Wednesday evening.
