Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have won two and drawn three of their seven league matches to date against the top six, while a goal difference of zero makes them the only club not in the minus.

But having picked up nine points against the big six, Wolves remain 11th going into their Monday Night Football clash at the Etihad – a sign of their struggles against lesser opposition, but a warning for City nonetheless.

Disappointingly for Wolves, a draw at Arsenal was followed by a home defeat to Huddersfield, victory at Chelsea was preceded by a 2-1 loss at Cardiff, while another home defeat against Crystal Palace came after an impressive 3-1 win at Tottenham.

Aug 25 Wolves 1-1 Man City
Sep 22 Man Utd 1-1 Wolves
Nov 3 Wolves 2-3 Tottenham
Nov 11 Arsenal 1-1 Wolves
Dec 5 Wolves 2-1 Chelsea
Dec 21 Wolves 0-2 Liverpool
Dec 29 Tottenham 1-3 Wolves

Inconsistencies aside, Wolves head to the Etihad knowing that it is against City where their unrivalled record kick-started back in August.

Will Wolves halt City again?

Having already held Man City this season, will Wolves deny the champions again? We examine their approach…

The 1-1 draw at Molineux proved City would not bulldoze their way to a second consecutive league title, and as Pep Guardiola’s side look to close the gap on leaders Liverpool once more, they will be wary of Wolves’ fearless approach against the toughest opponents.

Will Wolves add to their nine-point haul against the big six? Watch Manchester City vs Wolves live on Sky Sports Premier League from 7pm on Monday Night Football.
