Wolves host Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City on Wednesday (11 May) looking to build on their impressive display at Stamford Bridge which saw them draw 2-2 last weekend.
Bruno Lage’s men were unfortunate not to come away with all three points in London after putting in one of their most impressive performances of the season and they will have to be at a similar standard to get anything from title chasing City.
It’s a game that will, one way or another, have a detrimental affect on the outcome of the Premier League campaign for these two sides.
Wolves are desparate for a win to keep their hopes of European football in 2022 alive whilst anything less than a victory for City will allow Liverpool to edge their way back into the title picture.
Man City injury news
Guardiola will be without three defenders at the very least for the trip to Molineux with a fourth in Nathan Ake also expected to miss out.
Ruben Dias, John Stones and Kyle Walker have all been ruled out for the season with injury whilst Ake is currently nursing an issue which could see him miss the trip to the Black Country.
“Nothing changed after the game against Newcastle,” explained Guardiola in regards to the current injuries.
“We are who we are and are going to last three games with the players we have and go for it.
“We have problems in other departments, but the others are going to solve it.”
The City boss also admitted that Fernandinho could be utilised as a stand-in centre-back if Ake is unable to suit up on Wednesday evening.
Wolves injury news
And it’s as you were for Wolves too ahead of the game against the Citizens.
Daniel Podence remains out with a niggling toe injury that continues to bother him whilst Nelson Semedo is also confirmed out for Wednesday evening.
Max Kilman will return for the 2022/23 after he was ruled out for the remainder of this campaign with a knee problem.
