The Reds drew 1-1 with Tottenham at the weekend and need to beat Aston Villa in their clash on Tuesday night.

Regardless of what Liverpool do, City will just want to keep the pressure on and see Wolves out this week.

Wolves are still looking to claim European football for next season but are winless in their last four.

Wolves v Man City: Team news

Wolves remain Max Kilman and Nelson Semedo.

But Daniel Podence could return to action after missing recent games.

City, meanwhile, have plenty of defensive issues with Ruben Dias, Kyle Walker and John Stones unlikely to play again this season.

Fernandinho could replace at the back again or Nathan Ake could come into the line-up.

Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez all started on the bench this weekend and could therefore return to the starting XI.

Wolves v Man City: What was said?

Manchester City captain Fernandinho admits winning the Premier League title this season would be very nice.

He said, “Every title is sweet. It’s going to be one more…with a little more sugar.

“It was a great response, but at the same time we focus on ourselves and know the title is in our hands.

“No matter what they do there, we have to keep going through all the tough games.

“That’s what we try to do, focus on ourselves, but I thought it was a great response after the loss to Madrid, especially for our fans and ourselves, because when you lose a game like this, confidence can go down a bit. .

“But not just the result, the overall performance was really good and we’re really happy about that.”
