MCI vs WOL Dream11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Manchester City can cut the gap at the top of the table to just four points when they play host to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Etihad Stadium (City of Manchester Stadium), in the Premier League, on Monday night (IST).
After suffering three defeats in the four games, two of which came in successive games, Manchester City have now recorded two consecutive wins as they aim to defend their Premier League crown.
The festive period didn’t bring a good return to the Etihad Stadium as Pep lost to Crystal Palace and Leicester City in consecutive games. Also, with Liverpool winning all their matches in that period, City fell seven points behind in the title race. But a 2-1 win over Liverpool infused the life back into City’s defence.
At the moment, the reigning champions are 2nd in the table. Liverpool won 1-0 against Brighton & Hove Albion to extend their lead to 7 points. By the time City play this match, they could find themselves at 3rd if Tottenham Hotspur win their home game against Manchester United.
Wolverhampton Wanderers, on the other hand, are flying high in the league. Manager Nuno Espírito Santo is getting all the praise for his work and for the way he sets up his team, especially against the big teams.
As things stand, Wolves slipped down to 10th in the table after results went against them on Saturday. However, they could rise as high as 7th with a win at the Etihad Stadium.

MCI vs WOL Dream11 TEAM NEWS: Injuries and Suspensions
Manchester City vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News:
Injured – The injury list is starting to ease for City. Only three players remain out with injuries at the moment. Goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, centre-back Eliaquim Mangala and wing-back Benjamin Mendy all have been ruled out.
Suspended – None.
Questionable – Super striker Sergio Aguero has been suffering from an illness since playing against Liverpool. The Argentine scored the first goal against the Reds at the Etihad Stadium to propel his side to an important 2-1 win over Jurgen Klopp. He is likely to be assessed ahead of the match.
Club captain Vincent Kompany picked up a muscle injury against Liverpool as well. With other options like John Stone, Aymeric Laporte and Nicolas Otamendi all fit at the moment, Pep Guardiola is not expected to risk his captain at this moment.
Note: Kevin de Bruyne was an unused substitute against Liverpool. Considering the high intensity of the match, it was a good decision not to risk him. However, the former Chelsea playmaker has played the last two games, the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup semifinal 1st leg. Those games must have boosted his match fitness and you can expect him to start here in this match.
Key Players – De Bruyne, D. Silva

Suspended – None.
Questionable – None at the moment.
Note: Manager Nuno Espírito Santo has a full squad available to choose from. However, Ruben Neves has struggled in the recent matches and found himself on the bench as well. But after his good show against Liverpool in the FA Cup, he should start here.
Key Players – Neves, Moutinho, Jimenez

MCI vs WOL Dream11 FANTASY TEAM:
INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Wolves were the first team to take points from Manchester City this season. The game ended 1-1 and could have gone either way. Also, Nuno’s men have performed exceptionally well against the big teams. So it’s a potential banana skin for the reigning English Champions.
Having said that, the Cityzens showed against Liverpool they are one of the best teams in Europe. It was a do-or-die game for City which they won 2-1.
A home win is our call.
