Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Manchester City: How to watch on TV, live stream, kick-off time and team news

Wolverhampton Wanderers play host to Premier League champions Manchester City at Molineux on Saturday afternoon.

Wolves have made a disappointing start to the season with just one win in their opening six games, though this did come in their last outing.

Courtesy of a first-half goal from Daniel Podence, Bruno Lage’s side managed to beat Southampton by one goal to nil.

The victory soared the Wanderers up to 14th in the league standings, but this still isn’t quite where supporter expectations lie and an upturn in form is needed.

Fans may have to wait a little longer for this, though, as Man City are without doubt the toughest opposition of the campaign so far and a win is unlikely.

The Cityzens have picked up 14 points out of the 18 available and scored a league high of 20 goals. Star striker Erling Haaland has netted 10 of these alone.

It will be a huge challenge for Wolves and so Bruno Lage’s men will have to be at their very best to get anything from this game.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Wolves vs Man City, including the latest team news, the kick-off time, and how to watch the game live on UK television.

Is Wolves vs Man City on TV and how can I watch it?

Picked as the early 12.30pm kick-off time on Saturday 17 September, Wolves vs Man City will indeed be on live television.

Ruben Neves of Wolverhampton Wanderers makes a sliding challenge on Joao Cancelo of Manchester City the last time the two sides met at Molineux.

Supporters in the UK who are subscribed to BT Sport can tune into the game live on BT Sport 1HD and BT Sport Ultimate.

For those who are unable to watch it at 12.30pm on Saturday, highlights will be available on the BT Sport website around 30 minutes after the final whistle.

In-depth analysis and highlights will also be shown on Match of the Day, which will air on BBC One at 10.30pm on Saturday 17 September.

What is the team news ahead of Wolves vs Man City?

Wolves are still without attacking duo Sasa Kalajdzic (ACL) and Chiquinho (knee) who are both beginning their roads to recovery with long-term injuries.

Wolves’ new signing Diego Costa is likely to build fitness before playing but could make the squad against Manchester City.

New striker signing Diego Costa, who was brought in as a free agent to replace Kalajdzic, is likely to be bedded in before starting matches.

Man City meanwhile are missing Kyle Walker (knock) and Aymeric Laporte (knee) but otherwise have a relatively clean bill of health.
