Wolverhampton Wanderers lock horns with Manchester City in matchday 8 of the English Premier League 2022-23 at Molineux Stadium. The fixture is scheduled to commence on September 17 at 5:00 PM IST. 

Manchester City have begun their season in incredible fashion and are currently sitting second after winning four and drawing two. They have scored a staggering 20 goals already, five more than any other club in the top flight.

Meanwhile, Wolves have had a difficult start to their campaign. They have won just one of their six fixtures. Moreover, they have scored the joint-fewest goals so far, tied at three with fellow strugglers West Ham United.

WOL vs MCI Dream11 prediction

Analyzing the teams’ recent form, it is Manchester City who are favorites to win this clash. With prolific striker Erling Haaland in their ranks, it will be a huge task for the Wolves defence to contain the Norwegian, who is in form of his life. Furthermore, Man City have won each of the last four ties between the two sides and will be looking to extend the winning streak. 

WOL vs MCI Dream11 team tips for Premier League 2022-23

Top tip: Best forward

Manchester City stalwart Erling Haaland is a no-brainer pick here. The 22-year-old striker has taken the Premier League by storm since arriving from Borussia Dortmund and has netted 10 times in six games, which includes back-to-back hat-tricks against Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest. In fact, he has scored at least one goal in each of his last five games across all competitions and will be expected to continue his scoring spree here.

Top tip: Best midfielder

Man City star Kevin De Bruyne is an ideal choice among midfielders for this encounter. The Belgian has a goal and four assists to his name so far. The sharp vision to find his teammates in scoring positions is what makes him a must-have pick. 

Top tip: Best defender and goalkeeper

Full-back Joao Cancelo should be chosen from the defenders’ roster. He is an ever-present defender on the flanks and can also make that important pass in the final third. The Portuguese has three assists and a goal in the last four matches in all competitions.

Wolves goalie Jose Sa gets the nod ahead of Ederson in the fantasy teams as he is most likely to face constant attacks from Manchester City players, resulting in more saves, blocks, and interceptions, which will help him gain more points.

Wolverhampton Wanderers (4-3-3): Jose Sa; Jonny, Max Kilman, Nathan Collins, Rayan Ait-Nouri; Matheus Nunes, Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho; Pedro Neto, Raul Jimenez, Daniel Podence
