Wolverhampton Wanderers are at the Etihad Stadium hoping to become the first side to take points off Manchester City this calendar year.
The Citizens are in formidable form right now, and have won 20 games in a row.
Their struggles right at the start of the season seem a long long time ago now, and the Premier League leaders are playing some incredible stuff.
But not only that, Pep Guardiola’s side aren’t conceding goals or chances for that matter, making a positive result a huge ask for Wolves tonight.
But Nuno’s pack have recovered from a really poor run to take 11 points from the last five Premier League matches, and have shown they can beat City in the past.
Nuno Espirito Santo has named his starting XI for tonight’s game, and Rui Patricio is in goal, with what seems to be a back five in front of him.
The biggest thing of note is that Ki-Jana Hoever comes in to feature as part of the back three rather than out wide, with Leander Dendoncker moving back into midfield.
Willian Jose drops to the bench with Adama Traore and Pedro Neto playing in a partnership up top, presumably to offer themselves as outlets on the counter.
Willy Boly returns to the bench after missing the past few games with a hamstring injury.
Wolves supporters have been reacting to the XI on social media and although some perceive it to be a little negative with no recognised striker, many others are a fan and accept it for the side that lie in wait:
Excited to see Hover but if we go 2 down il switch it off
