Wolves vs Man City Live: Wolves vs Man City Live Stream Online Soccer Game 2019 Free Tv Coverage, Manchester City and Wolverhampton are meeting up for their first leg of the season at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday at Etihad Stadium. Man City has a defense that allows only one goal per game, so Wolverhampton’s offense will have their work cut out for them. It was all tied up at the half for City and Everton on Saturday, but City stepped up in the second half. City were able to grind out a solid win over Everton, winning 3-1. The success made it back-to-back wins for City.
Brendan Rodgers runs into former employers Liverpool on Saturday hoping his Leicester City side is capable of snatching a result off the Premier League leaders. Liverpool sits five points clear at the summit and could temporarily increase that gap with a result over Leicester, against whom the team is unbeaten in four league fixtures.
Leicester last defeated Liverpool in February 2017 and is out to improve upon the 1-1 draw it secured at Anfield in January this year—the last point Claude Puel won before he was fired in February.
The general consensus is Leicester leads a rising band of clubs ready to break into England’s hierarchy, though Liverpool aims to establish who rules the roost in the present. Leicester’s chief is unbeaten in two meetings against Liverpool, though the Merseysiders are a different beast to the one against whom he clinched 1-0 and 0-0 results while at Swansea City.
The Reds won three successive meetings with Leicester prior to the aforementioned draw in early 2019, and Rodgers has a lot to prove in his first meeting with the club since it sacked him in October 2015.
Brazil goalkeeper Alisson Becker continues his rehabilitation following a calf injury and faces a chance of making his second appearance of the season, though Adrian could remain between the sticks. Star Foxes midfielder James Maddison has an ankle problem and could be a critical absence for the visitors if he misses out.
Leicester has scored against Liverpool in its last nine fixtures (all competitions, including friendlies), but Jurgen Klopp’s defense looks to hold firm searching for its fourth clean sheet this season. Liverpool march on, reaching the second international break still in retention of the only 100 per cent record in the top four divisions. But boy did they leave it late. It was a penalty, one in added time when Sadio Mane fell theatrically under a challenge from Marc Albrighton, that preserved their unsullied start. The delighted bellow from their manager Jurgen Klopp as James Milner stroked the ball home was the very definition of what relief sounds like.
“If winning eight games in a row is easy, people would do it all the time. It isn’t easy,” Klopp insisted.
For Brendan Rodgers, this represented a horrible sense of deja vu. He had stood on this very touchline in 2014 watching his chances of becoming the first Liverpool manager to win the Premier League disappear as Steven Gerrard slipped to the ground. Now he was obliged to watch another Liverpool player falling at a critical moment undermine him again.
“To concede a 95th minute penalty was difficult to take. I thought we deserved something,” Rodgers said. “It was a very soft penalty, not clear and obvious. I think he made the most of it.”
Leicester had flattered to deceive on their recent trip to Old Trafford. But here was a chance for their manager to remind Liverpool supporters that he was more than just a walking endorsement for cosmetic dentistry. He arrived back on Merseyside to generous applause from the Kop, before taking a moment to shake hands with Klopp, who is his tenant at the very home on the Wirral he assumed he would be occupying for some time after taking Liverpool to second place.
But for all his self-satisfaction, Rodgers has clearly had an effect on this Leicester side. Bereft of confidence and lacking in adventure under Claude Puel, they now look organised, coherent, fluent. Particularly at the back.
In Ben Chilwell and the excellent Ricardo Pereira, they boast the second best pair of full-backs in the Premier League after Liverpool’s own. And inside them, Jonny Evans provides a one-man indictment of Manchester United’s recruitment and retention programme. This is the player Louis van Gaal let go to make room for Marcos Rojo which, on the evidence here at Anfield, was like trading in a Rolls Royce for a Skoda with a defective carburetor.
For nearly half an hour, this backline did what few others have managed at Anfield this season: they kept Liverpool at arms’ length. A Mane shot in Kasper Schmeichel’s midriff and Firmino shooting over was the closest the home side came in the early exchanges. Indeed, Mane was obliged twice to scramble back to block out Chilwell’s incursions. And Dejan Lovren had to head over his own bar as a dangerous cross came in from Dennis Praet.
