The wolves begin a festive nightmare consecutively while welcoming the Manchester City champions to Molineux on boxing day.

Arriving only 45 hours before traveling to Liverpool from the Premier League leaders, Nuno Espirito Santo has to solve a team selection puzzle.

Meanwhile, City gave its weak title a big boost with a victory over Leicester City, although Liverpool will have appreciated that its own advantage has not been reduced.

Pep Guardiola will also be cut off by juggling his players with the high-flying Sheffield United that will arrive in the city 48 hours.

The game is Friday, December 27, beginning at 7:45 p.m. GMT

Team news and lineups

Wolves:: Nuno Espirito Santo reported that there were no new injury problems before the game at his team’s home against the champions.

Nuno could make some changes on Friday night, with a trip to Liverpool less than 45 hours later. The likes of Patrick Cutrone, Pedro Neto, Rubén Vinagre, Ryan Bennett and Max Kilman are options.

Midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White (back) continues his recovery, along with midfielder Willy Boly (broken leg) and Bruno Jordao (ankle).

Manchester City: City will once again be without game creator David Silva and defender John Stones for the trip to Molineux.

Silva has not yet returned to training since a blow to the leg in the Manchester derby earlier this month and Stones has missed four games with a hamstring injury.

Striker Sergio Agüero will be back on the bench when he returns from a thigh problem. Aymeric Laporte central defender and Leroy Sane end are long absent with knee injuries.

How we think the sides could line up …
Wolves: Patricio, Dendoncker, Coady, Saiss, Doherty, Neves, Moutinho, Castro, Adama, Jimenez, Jota

Manchester City: Ederson; Walker, Fernandinho, Otamendi, Mendy; De Bruyne, Rodri, Gundogan; Mahrez, Jesus, Sterling
