After a potentially pivotal weekend in which: Pep Guardiola:‘s side built-up a three-point over Liverpool by thrashing: Newcastle 5-0 the day after: Jurgen Klopp’s side drew with Tottenham, City are within touching distance.
Still, two tough away games await.

Wolves vs Man City team news:
Max Kilman, Nelson Semedo and Daniel Podence will all be out for the rest of the season for the Wolves.
Raul Jimenez was brought back into the side in place for Fabio Silva for the Chelsea draw along with Pedro Neto. Given the manner of their comeback, it seems reasonable to expect the same as City roll into town.
For the champions, Guardiola has confirmed Kyle Walker, John Stones and Ruben Dias will miss the remainder of the campaign, surely bringing Nathan Ake in to partner Aymeric Laporte centrally.
Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling both impressed against Newcastle and could lineup either side of Phil Foden.
