Our pre-season survey revealed that 59% of City supporters still cite centre-back as a major area of concern this season.

Nathan Ake will get the chance to prove that those fears are groundless at Molineux tonight, with Aymeric Laporte missing - but the bookies still make Over 2.5 goals an odds on 7/10 call while Both Teams To Score is also less than even money at 5/6.

All four meetings between Wolves and Manchester City under Pep Guardiola and Nuno Espirito Santo have produced at least two goals with Over 2.5 paying out in half of those fixtures and Both Teams To Score following the same trend.

Both teams have scored in both matches at Molineux since Wolves returned to the Premier League and another trend worth noting is that four of Wolves' six meetings with top-six finishers last season broke the Over 2.5 Goals barrier, with the same figure securing BTTS profit.

City only fired four blanks in the whole of last season so BTTS looks a shoo in.

But can lightning strike THREE times?

Since the hosts' promotion to the top-flight, Nuno Espirito Santo's side have avoided defeat in three of their four Premier League showdowns against the Citizens (W2-D1-L1), including doing the double over City last season.

They are a very big 11/2 to make it three in a row while City are a prohibitive 1/2 with thepools.com.

Safer ground is backing corners. Man City were last season's leading Premier League corner winners with a whopping 298 over the PL season. Wolves managed five in last week's win at Sheffield United - and Man City to win, Over 1.5 goals and nine or more corners is a Pools special at 17/10.
