Manchester City will kick their new Premier League season off on Monday when they travel to Wolves.
It was only last month when City's previous campaign came to a crushing end with a 3-1 defeat to Lyon in the Champions League quarter-finals, and Pep Guardiola will need to lift his team ahead of what is set to be a gruelling year.
The Blues sat out the first week of the season as they were given extra time to rest following their European exploits, but Wolves got off to a winning start with a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United.
Wolves won both encounters between the clubs last season and City will be hoping their luck changes against them to start the season off with three points.
Here's how the pundits are predicting the match will turn out...

"All appears to be well at Wolves with first the announcement that Nuno Espirito Santo had signed a new deal that will keep him at the club for another three years and then with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Sheffield United in their first game of the new season.
"They are an impressive team, full of quality players and the manager certainly seems to be getting a tune out of each and every one of them.
"Manchester City will be very keen to start with a win as they won’t want to be chasing anyone at the top of the table. They finished 18 points behind Liverpool last season and will know they need to be much more consistent if they are to win the league this season. This is a difficult game to call but I am just going to go with Manchester City to edge it 2-1."
Prediction: Wolves 1-2 Man City

"Wolves away is one of the hardest games any team will face this season, so it is hardly the ideal way for Manchester City to belatedly start their campaign.
"There are plenty of question marks over how Pep Guardiola's side will line up at the back - who will be their centre-half pairing? Where will new signing Nathan Ake play?
"Wolves are already up and running - we saw that with their early goals against Sheffield United - and City cannot afford to be off their game, because we all know what happened when they played Wolves last season. They lost, home and away.
"All things considered, a point would be a good result for City, who are playing catch-up at the top of the table before they have even kicked a ball."
Prediction: Wolves 1-1 Man City
