Manchester City are missing a few defenders through injury but I still think they will be okay at Molineux.

I don’t know what has happened to Wolves, because they are usually difficult to play against and I wouldn’t describe them as being that way at the moment.

I know they came back to rescue a draw with Chelsea on Saturday but that was more down to a wobble by the Blues than anything else.

Prediction: 0-2
