Recent respective form guides

Wolverhampton Wanderers could not have a worse home record, losing every single one of the last six matches played! Wolves have conceded a disappointing 21 goals in this period, and managed to convert only 3 of their own chances.

Manchester City's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. The games have constituted a decent return of 9 goals for the Sky Blues, and 6 goals against.

Wolverhampton Wanderers find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 34 games have yielded only 23 points.

Manchester City's total of 77 points from their 34 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Barclays Premier League.
