MCI Vs WOL Dream11 : Tenacious Wolverhampton look to halt a formidable and dangerous Manchester City outfit today
With the side involved in the Europa league for the first time since 1980, for Wolverhampton, adjusting to the hectic and congested schedule has not been easy in the 2019-20 season. The side have been unable to emulate the same rousing performances which saw everyone stand up and take notice to them in the previous season but with a win in their previous encounter, the side enter the land of today’s dramatic the massively buoyed.
It took them a whole of six gameweeks to record their first win in the ongoing camping of the Premier League but the side have finally gotten the momentum they so much desired for after putting down Watford in their foregone clash in the league. They’ll be looking to build on that showing today and show why they are held in such massive reverence and considered such a staunch side in the marquee league.
Things are going to be far from easy for them though today as they veer up to take on Manchester City, a side who have been relentless and ruthless over the course of the last two weeks. With the current champions already finding themselves well behind the rampant speed Liverpool have set in the league, Manchester City know there are no margins for errors any more if they are to have any chance of retaining their title.
What does give Wolverhampton a glimmer of a chance against them today though is not only their form against the top 6 sides ever since the course of the last year but the spate of injuries which have stricken Manchester City. Injuries to their CBs were further compounded with Kevin de Bruyne being ruled out for today’s imminent clash and with the side just about squirming through to a 2-0 win against Everton, Wolverhampton will know they can get the result they so much crave for from this match.

Top Goal Scorer
MCI Vs WOL Dream11 Goal-Keeper
With three cleansheets in their previous three matches across all the tournamnets they have contested in, Manchester City have been quick to dispel notions of the side struggling due to their predicament of having just the one fit CB as things stand. With them looking the likelier side to keep a cleansheet from this clash, we have gone in with their goal-keeper, Ederson Moraes for this encounter.
MCI Vs WOL Dream11 Defenders
Sticking to the aforementioned narrative of City making for a stringent defensive unit, their CB, Nicholas Otamendi comes in for us while it’s a two man partnership representing us from Wolverhampton. Playing the 3 CBs protected by the two wingbacks offer the wingbacks a pristine chance to maraud up the pitch and succulent emote themselves in the attacking side of their side’s soirees.
Apprising us of their attacking acumen time and time again with Matt Doherty even scoring in the previous match, we have him and Johnny Castro Otto come into our side for today’s imminent clash.
MCI Vs WOL Dream11 Midfielders
While Wolverhampton will need to huff and puff to scramble their way to a goal, the side have earned the title of the most progressive side in Europe due to a reason. They can be scrumptious when in full flow, a side whose attacking skill set has perplexed the best of outfits in the league.
And players critical to doling out that discourse for the side have been Leander Dendoncker and Pedro Neto, two players we are getting in from the side while from Manchester City we have gone in with a seamless blend of attack and defence. With KDB out of this one, the onus will increase on David Silva to contribute with both goals and assists, seeing his role be pushed up the park, making him our first choice along with CDM Rodrygo Hernandez.
MCI Vs WOL Dream11 Strikers
Sergio Aguero missed out on the previous encounter for his side, playing only as a substitute but with Wolverhampton descending this week, he should be back in the side’s playing 11 today. With 8 goals till now, he has been quick to how why he’s considered so highly as a striker, making him a regulation pick for us along with Raheem Sterling.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Aguero comes into our side as the captain today while Sterling is being made the vice-captain.
