The reigning Premier League champions are looking to win their sixth game on the bounce, though lost in midweek in the Champions League to RB Leipzig.
Wolves, who last beat City 11 years ago, have scored just one goal in five games and are beginning to look down the table, rather than up, after an Autumn resurgence.
Phil Foden and Nathan Ake will be assessed ahead of the game after coming away from Germany with injury niggles, though Pep Guardiola has Gabriel Jesus and Aymeric Laporte definitely back in contention.
Raheem Sterling is looking to score his 100th Premier League goal and should start at the Etihad.
This game usually brings goals, and usually in City’s favor, so we should be in for a treat this lunchtime.
Indeed, the game offers Pep Guardiola the chance to put some early pressure on Chelsea and Liverpool ahead of their games at home to Leeds United and Aston Villa respectively, in what could be another dramatic day in the Premier League title race.
Wolves, however, managed to take Liverpool to the brink last week and have represented somewhat of a bogey team for Guardiola before, such is their danger on the counter.
As Crystal Palace proved last month, City can be susceptible to throwing games away when pouring forward and failing to take their chances.
