The Reds have a game in hand still, but after holding serve so often to chase down Jurgen Klopp’s side last term, crucial belief has been restored.
Kevin De Bruyne made a compelling case he is the best player in the league in the 3-1 win over the Foxes but now comes a similarly tough test in the form of Wolves.
Nuno’s side beat them at the Etihad earlier this season thanks to a double from Adama Traore, while they also held them to a 1-1 draw at Molineux last term.

What are the predicted line-ups?
Wolves: Patricio; Dendoncker, Coady, Saiss; Doherty, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny; Traore, Jimenez, Jota
Man City: Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Mendy; Rodri, Bernardo; Mahrez, De Bruyne, Sterling, Jesus
What is the team news?
Kevin de Bruyne is fit despite a scare towards the end of the Leicester game, but could be rested to avoid the risk of another serious injury, while Sergio Aguero is not fit enough to play 90 minutes yet. David Silva remains out, while Ilkay Gundogan is a doubt and John Stones (hamstring) remains out.
Adama Traore proved his shoulder issue is not bothering him substantially with 90 minutes last time out against Norwich. Nuno has no fresh issues but could rotate given the intensity of two games against City and Liverpool inside 45 hours, so Max Kilman, Jesus Vallejo, Ruben Vinagre, Pedro Neto and Patrick Cutrone could all be handed a chance through rotation. Willy Boly (ankle), Morgan Gibbs-White (back) and Bruno Jordao (ankle) are all still out injured.

Wolves vs Manchester City kicks off at 7:45pm (GMT) on Friday 27 December.

A really tricky game for the champions, given Wolves have proven to be a tough match-up for them in recent years and they are also in form. We expect goals here and City to prevail 3-2 and remain alive in the title race.

Man City 4/11
