LiveLIVEPremier League: Wolves v Man City the first of three games



Early team news

Wolves striker Sasa Kalajdzic is set for a long spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on the ACL he injured in his side’s game against Southampton, his first appearance for the club. Winger Chiquinho is already out with a similar – but worse – injury he suffered in a pre-season match against Burnley. We wish both players well on their long road back to full fitness. Striker Raul Jimenez is sidelined with a groin injury that is expected to keep him out for several weeks.

Manchester City are still without Aymeric Laporte, who is recovering from a knee injury but not expected to return until after the international break, while his fellow defender Kyle Walker could feature after sitting out the Dortmund game with an injury. Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez could miss out today having displeased their manager with particularly poor individual performances in midweek.

Guardiola provides injury update ahead of Wolves trip

The England international is in his second season at the Etihad Stadium having joined from Aston Villa in the summer of 2021.

He has played on the left of the front three in each of his five appearances for City so far this season, helping Pep Guardiola’s side to an unbeaten start in both the Premier League and Champions League.



The 27-year-old considers the role he has recently occupied in the side as one of two where he is at his best creatively.

“What got me the move here was playing on the left-wing,” he said.

“There were times last season where I played as a false nine, I played as a number eight sometimes where Bernardo, Gundo[gan] and Kev [De Bruyne] play.

“I like that position as well and I played there in the past for Villa. I think if you play in that position at City then you see a lot of the ball so I would say the left-wing or a number eight [is his preferred position].

“The attacking players such as me, Erling [Haaland], Phil [Foden], Julian [Alvarez] and Riyad [Mahrez], I think we can all play in different positions.

Premier League: Wolves v Manchester City

Molineux is the venue for today’s top flight set-to between Wolves and Manchester City and a win for the champions would see them leapfrog Arsenal to go top of the table for 24 hours at least. CIty came from behind to beat Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League earlier this week, while Wolves have not played since their home win against Southampton a fortnight ago.

In need of a regular goalscorer, Bruno Lage’s team have since signed Diego Costa, who says his return to the Premier League “has lit a fire within”. The Brazilian born Spain international has been without a club since terminating his contract with Atletico Mineiro in January but is expected to return to competitive action today, fitness permitting. Kick-off at Molineux is at 12.30pm but stay tuned in the meantime for team news and build-up.

Jack Grealish believes it was his performances on the left-wing that secured his move to the Premier League champions last summer – and it is one of two positions where he can make the most impact.
