There were almost two Argentine hat-tricks at Carrow Road last Saturday as three goals from Carlos Tevez and a brace from Sergio Aguero helped City to a 6-1 win over Norwich City.
Both players have each scored four goals over the last two games, in which the Blues have hit ten goals. The difficulty for punters is, then, choosing which player is more likely to score at Wolves on Sunday afternoon.
Our betting partner Paddy Power has Aguero at 3/1 to score first and add to his total of 28 goals in all competitions this season. His total of 21 Premier League goals puts him third in the overall top scorers list.
Tevez is also 3/1 to score first and 4/7 to score anytime against Wolves. Not only has he scored four goals in his last two City games but he has also scored four goals in his last two appearances against Wolves.
Another player who has found success against the Midlanders is Adam Johnson. He scored in the league and Carling Cup games against Wolves earlier in the season and added to his league total with the final goal against Norwich on Saturday. You can back him at 11/5 with Paddy Power to score anytime.
Wolves have now gone ten Premier League games without victory, a spell which has seen them pick up just two points from a possible 30. They showed some spirit in holding Sunderland to a draw last weekend but they are 10/1 outsiders in this game, despite playing at home.
City are strong 3/10 favourites to win the contest. Given their last two results and Wolves’ current run of form it may be worth taking a look at the handicap markets. City -1 goal is 4/6 and City -2 goals is 7/4.
