Manchester City kicks off their 2020-21 Premier League campaign on Monday night with a clash against Wolves.
The Premier League 2020-21 is in its second week and Manchester City is the final team who start their campaign. Pep Guardiola's side aims to start their battle with Liverpool to take back the title this season. In the previous season, Wolves did the league double against the City and Guardiola would avoid the third straight defeat on Monday. Wolves finished 7th in the table and they are the side who can surprise City in the weekday clash. Both clubs last met at Molineux and Wolves emerged victorious 3-2 with a record 62.2% possession. Man City needs to carry the winning momentum to surpass Liverpool who have already bagged 6 points from two wins against Leeds and Chelsea.
The city haven’t lost an opening day fixture in their previous 11 Premier League opening matches. Guardiola’s men ended the last season on a happy note with scoring 21 goals and conceding just one, including a thumping victory against Liverpool. Wolves are fresh off a 2-0 victory against Sheffield United on Monday last week. Wolves took an early lead in the first 6 minutes after the strikes from Jimenez and Saiss in the 3rd and 6th minute. In midweek, they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Stoke City in the English League Cup.
