Manchester City will be without key defenders for the remainder of the season as they prepare to meet Wolves tonight.




Pep Guardiola saw his side build-up a three-point lead over title rivals Liverpool by thrashing Newcastle 5-0 a day after Jurgen Klopp’s team dropped points at home to Tottenham, though the Reds are now level again - but still second on goal difference - after winning at Aston Villa last night.


Still, the victory over Newcastle came at a cost with Ruben Dias joining England duo Kyle Walker and John Stones on the sidelines for the rest of the campaign.

That may result in Fernandinho partnering Aymeric Laporte in central defence at Molineux this evening, with Nathan Ake also carrying a knock and Joao Cancelo and Oleksandr Zinchenko the only fit senior full-backs.

Jack Grealish enjoyed perhaps his best game in a City shirt against Newcastle and is vying for another starting berth. For such a crucial game, it seems reasonable to expect both Phil Foden and Bernardo Silva to return to the starting lineup.

Guardiola said of the injury situation on Tuesday: “Nothing changed after the game against Newcastle. We are who we are and are going into the last three games with the players we have and go for it.

“We have problems in other departments but the others to are going to solve it.”


Predicted Manchester City XI (4-3-3): Ederson; Cancelo, Ake, Laporte, Zinchenko; Rodri, De Bruyne, Silva; Jesus, Foden, Grealish


Injured: Walker (ankle), Dias (hamstring), Stones (muscle)
