In Round 7 of the Premier League, Wolverhampton Wanderers will face off against Manchester City on their home turf at Molineux Stadium.
Manchester City, a team that has already won the league three times in a row, has had a dream start to the season. This remarkable performance puts them on track to achieve a historic fourth consecutive Premier League title, and they are the only team in the league with a flawless 100% win record.
On the other hand, Wolves have had a tough season so far when it comes to results, despite some outstanding individual displays on the field. Their only silver lining this season has been a late victory on the road against struggling Everton. Unfortunately, Gary O'Neil's team has faced defeat in four out of their initial five matches, including both of their games at Molineux Stadium. The top bookmakers in India have fantastic Premier League odds with them.

The betting tip is...
Haaland to score a goal
Wolverhampton Wanderers are eager to secure their second victory of the year, although they would certainly be satisfied with a single point from the upcoming match. However, their chances face a setback as Jean-Ricner Bellegarde is suspended for the game due to a red card he received in a 1-1 draw with Luton Town.
Fortunately, the team has most of its players available for the match, so squad availability is not a major concern. The only fitness issue on manager Gary O'Neil's mind is the absence of Joe Hodge, who is sidelined with a hamstring injury.
Matheus Cunha is expected to start against Manchester City.
Predicted Lineup: Sa, Dawson, Kilman, Bueno, Kalajdzic, Silva, Sarabia, Lemina, Gomes, Neto, Semedo.
Unfortunately, Manchester City will miss the services of Rodrigo, a crucial midfielder who is suspended for the Saturday game. Additionally, Bernardo Silva and Kevin De Bruyne are still in the recovery phase.
Despite these setbacks, Manchester City's defensive strength has been truly impressive, allowing only four goals to slip past them in their last six matches. In stark contrast, their offensive unit has been in sensational form, scoring an astonishing 16 goals during the same period.
Rodri is likely to be replaced by Kalvin Phillips in the starting XI.
Predicted Lineup: Akanji, Alvarez, Doku, Haaland, Walker, Ruben Dias, Nathan Aké, Silva, Phillips, Ederson, Foden,
Manchester City is currently in exceptional form, reaching new heights in recent weeks. One of their standout performers is Erling Haaland, who has showcased his prowess with an impressive record of 16 shots on target and a total of 9 goals and assists combined in just six matches. Haaland poses the most significant threat to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
On the other hand, WolvesForest can be a formidable force when they are at their best. Matheus Cunha, with an impressive 21.1% accuracy in shots on target, and Pedro Neto, boasting the same accuracy rate, present a formidable challenge for Manchester City.
Nevertheless, there's no denying that Manchester City boasts a superior squad packed with exceptional talent and tactical expertise. This firmly establishes them as the frontrunners to secure victory in what is shaping up to be an exciting showdown.
