Wolves v Man City: What has been said?

Manchester City captain Fernandinho admits winning the Premier League title this season would be extra sweet.

He said: “Every title is sweet. It’s going to be one more… with a little more sugar.

“It was a great response but at the same time we are focusing on ourselves and know the title is in our hands.

“It doesn’t matter what they do over there, we have to keep going through all the hard games.

“This is what we are trying to do, focus on ourselves, but I thought it was a great response after defeat in Madrid, especially for our fans and ourselves because when you lose a match like this, the confidence can go a little bit down.

“But not just the result, the performance overall was really good and we are really happy about that.”

Wolves v Man City: Match facts

  • Man City have kept a clean sheet in their last five away Premier League matches, with only three sides ever keeping more than five consecutively in the Premier League: Chelsea (7 in a row, 2008), Manchester United (7, 2008-09) and Liverpool (6, 2014-15).
  • Although Wolves have only recovered four points from losing positions in the Premier League this season (the joint fewest of any team), those four points have all come from being two goals down in matches, winning 3-2 against Aston Villa in October and drawing 2-2 with Chelsea last time out.
  • Manchester City are unbeaten in their last 16 away Premier League games (W13 D3) – it is their longest ever away unbeaten league run in their history, with their 4-0 win at Leeds taking them one ahead of the 15-game run under Joe Royle between December 1998 and September 1999.
  • In 2022, Wolves have alternated between a win and a defeat in all eight of their home Premier League matches – they lost 3-0 at Molineux last time out against Brighton and Hove Albion.
