History of the Manchester City v Wolverhampton Wanderers fixture

Man. City prepare to entertain Wolverhampton Wanderers at City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Sky Blues are clearly on top, having won 30 and lost only 13 of the 55 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at City of Manchester Stadium was just last season, in August 2009, the Sky Blues carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a Premier League match.
