Goals guaranteed in Wolves clash!

Manuel Pellegrini is set to turn the dial to 11 as he aims to win big against Wolves this weekend.

The Chilean knows he needs a victory to go along with some recent impressive performances, particularly against Arsenal, and he will be boosted by the return of Marko Arnautovic.

Indeed, the promoted side are a tidy unit themselves and picked up a credible 1-1 draw with Manchester City last time out, with the likes of Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho not to be underestimated.

They also scored twice against Everton on the opening day, though they were beaten 2-0 by Leicester in their second game.

Pellegrini, as such, wants an attacking team and is likely to start Arnie up front, after his return from injury. If his fitness does not hold out, it will likely be Michail Antonio up top, with Javier Hernandez not possessing the required strength to lead the line on his own.

Arnie will be supported by Felipe Anderson, fresh from a dazzling display against Arsenal. Carlos Sanchez, too, was excellent and will play in midfield, and he is likely to be partnered by Jack Wilshere, who has a bit to prove after some below-par performances.

Fabian Balbuena and Issa Diop are set to play at centre-back, fresh from Diop scoring a screamer in the Carabao Cup against Wimbledon.

Ryan Fredericks and Arthur Masuaku are likely to be the full-backs.

That means we could see an XI like this: Fabianski; Fredericks, Balbuena, Diop, Masuaku; Snodgrass, Sanchez, Wilshere, Antonio; Anderson; Arnautovic.

  1. If Wilshere starts we will lose this game. If you did the analysis of the first 3 games like I have done, he is the weakest player in the team. I hear people saying he needs games to get to his best, he played like this for the entire season at Arsenal so he is not going to get any better, how many games do we need to lose before he is dropped.
