Bet on Wolves vs Man City – Arsenal defeat will spur City on

| 29.10.2010

One draw and six defeats in their last seven league games makes Wolves the ideal time for Manchester City to bounce back from their defeat to Arsenal.

Match Odds

The last time they suffered defeat, against West Brom in the Carling Cup, Man City followed it up with a win over Chelsea, so Wolves will be dreading the Citizens visit to Molineux this weekend.

City will need to recover quickly, both Arsenal and Chelsea have games that look like easy wins, while Manchester United’s record at home to Tottenham is outstanding.

Already five points behind Chelsea, Roberto Mancini will make sure his players know they have to win and are priced at 4/6 to do so.

Wolves welcome back captain Karl Henry from suspension, and he will be doing his best to disrupt Gareth Barry and David Silva’s incisive passing.

Henry will though have to get through Yaya Toure and Nigel De Jong first.

Wolves are 9/2 to win their first game in eight and it’s 5/2 for the draw.

To Come From Behind And Win

You might argue that City will be too efficient to let Wolves score at all, but both teams have form that points to City coming from behind to win.

Wolves had taken the lead four times this season, only to be pegged back each time.

And, although Wolves have only scored eight times this season, six of those goals have come in the first half of games.

Add to this the fact that City like to score late in the game, eight of their 12 goals have come in second half of their games, and you’ve got a good chance of making some money.

It’s 8/1 for City to fall behind and win, with Wolves a lot further back at 16/1 to do the same.

Adam Johnson is 6/1 to score the opening goal for Manchester City, follow the full Premier League odds market here.
