Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Manchester City will be aiming to extend their unbelievable winning run when they take on Wolverhampton on Tuesday evening. The Citizens head into the match following a 2-1 win over West Ham United where defender Stones scored the winner after 68 minutes. The league leaders aim to move one step closer to clinching top position in the standings, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Wolverhampton.
Since Kun Aguero failed to impress against the Hammers, Gabriel Jesus should be recalled to the starting XI, as well as Raheem Sterling, who was rested at the weekend. Defender Nathan Ake should be the only absentee in the home team. The Wolves have been in a fine form of late, but Man City are likely to pose a much bigger threat for the visitors than their previous rivals. Key attacker Raul Jimenez is a long-term absentee, with Marcal, Podence, and Boly missing the game as well.
Highlighted Player (Raheem Sterling):
Raheem Sterling is an English professional footballer plays for Manchester City in the Premier League. The winger who is known for his lightning pace and dribbling ability started his youth career as a five-year-old playing for Alpha and Omega. In 2003, he joined QPR's youth academy and spent seven years with them before signing for Liverpool in 2010.
At Liverpool, Sterling made his professional debut, coming on as a substitute in a league match against Wigan Athletic on the 24th of March, 2012. He went on to make over 120 appearances in all competitions for the Reds, scoring 23 goals and providing 25 assists in the process. In August 2015, Sterling joined Manchester City on a transfer worth 49 million pounds, which made the most expensive English footballer at the time.
Since signing for the Citizens, Sterling has enjoyed a trophy-laden career winning every English domestic trophy available and has molded himself into one of the best players in the league. Sterling, who was born in Kingston, Jamaica, holds both the English and Jamaican citizenship but chose to represent England at the International stage. The 24-year-old has capped at every youth level and won his first cap for the senior team on the 14th of November, 2012. He has since featured 53 times for the Three Lions.
