It’s then Norwich City on Sunday, with Liverpool at Anfield on the final day of the season.

Wolves are looking to get things back on track after going four games without a win.

Relentless City are probably the last team Wolves would want to be facing, but Coady has insisted that he and his teammates are very much looking forward to facing both them and Liverpool.

He said on talkSPORT yesterday morning: “Yeah, the gaffer spoke about it yesterday to be honest. We’ve got a huge game coming up at Molineux tomorrow night under the lights, against one of the best teams in the world if not the best team in the world. It’s something we’re all really looking forward to.

“We’re looking forward to it as well because of the result we got on the weekend. Three games left, two against the best teams in the world and we can’t wait for it.”

At the moment, City lead Liverpool by three points.

The Reds could only draw 1-1 with Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend, with City thrashing Newcastle United 5-0.

Wolves lost both their reverse fixtures to City and Liverpool 1-0.

But the team was extremely unlucky on both occasions.

At the Etihad Stadium, Joao Moutinho got penalised for a ‘handball’ in the area, leading to Raheem Sterling to score the game’s only goal via the penalty spot.

And against Liverpool, Wolves defended heroically before Divock Origi scored in injury-time.

Wolves have potential to cause slip ups for Manchester City and Liverpool in the title race

Wolves may not have been in great form in the last few weeks, but there is definitely potential for Bruno Lage’s side to take points off the two title contenders.

Wolves put in a fine showing in the final half an hour or so against Chelsea, and may be feeling quite confident after rescuing a point at Stamford Bridge.

Gary Neville believes Wolves can shock City tonight. Wanderers have had some good results against City since being promoted back to the top-flight, so it’s possible Pep Guardiola’s side could have some difficulty.
