Wolverhampton Wanderers make the trip to Manchester City in the Monday Night Football, and their boss is set to recall all of his big hitters, according to BBC Sport.

Wolves will head to the Etihad Stadium knowing that they were one of few teams to stop the Citizens scoring there last season, when the two sides met in a Carabao Cup tie, one which Pep Guardiola’s men eventually won on penalty kicks after a goalless draw.

Wanderers go into this match off the back of a solid win over Liverpool in the FA Cup last week, and having already held Man City in the Premier League this season, they will head up the M6 high in confidence.

Nuno Espirito Santo made a number of changes to his side for the victory over the league leaders seven days ago, and he is expected to recall all those who sat out that contest.

Rui Patricio and Matt Doherty were both among the players who did not feature against the Reds last Monday, and the pair should take their place in the starting line up in this match.

It is not yet known whether Nuno will start with Diogo Jota though. The forward made his return from a hamstring injury against Liverpool last week, but the Wolves boss is not short of options all of a sudden.

Wolverhampton go into the match having won at Tottenham Hotspur already this season, to put a dent in their title hopes, and they will be looking to do the same when they arrive at the Etihad Stadium.

Raul Jimenez shone at Wembley Stadium against Spurs recently, and he could be a key man for Wolves when they go up against Manchester City, but Santo and his men have a formula that the Premier League champions seem to struggle against, and will be looking to make the most of that style once again.
