As for City, it will greatly increase their chances of winning, an eventuality that Pep Guardiola would love, especially if his side can capitalize and seal the three points.

Considering how the defensive duo of Semedo and Kilman have racked up a combined total of 220 tackles and interceptions together in the league this season, that would definitely weaken their solid defense, which has only been dispatched 34 times throughout the season. the season.

As for Podence, only three other Wolves players have contributed more goals than the winger, who has two goals and three assists to his name.

With City struggling with their own defensive injuries with the trio of Ruben Dias, John Stones and Kyle Walker out for the rest of the season, having Podence out of the frame tonight will also come as a big relief for Guardiola.

Going forward, the only thing on the Manchester club’s mind will no doubt be to get all three points, regardless of who are fit enough to play for both sides.
