Sure, between these two victories, there was a 0-2 home defeat against Crystal Palace, but that doesn’t take away from Wolverhampton’s merits.

Why Manchester City will win at least at a two-goal margin – Odds and prediction
With 16 goals in the last two games, it’s clear for everyone that Manchester City has reached a new peak, offensively speaking. Although the opponents were inferior, to say the least, City looked incredible, even without Aguero on the pitch. We expect the Argentinian to get back with an even more heated desire for goals.
In the first game between the two, Wolverhampton got a draw at home, 1-1, with Boly and Laporte getting on the scoreboard. The visitors dominated the match, but couldn’t get all three points. City could have some trouble opening up Wolverhampton’s defence, yet once Guardiola’s men manage to do so, they’ll have a much easier time going through.
