Molineux is the venue for today’s top flight set-to between Wolves and Manchester City and a win for the champions would see them leapfrog Arsenal to go top of the table for 24 hours at least. CIty came from behind to beat Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League earlier this week, while Wolves have not played since their home win against Southampton a fortnight ago.

In need of a regular goalscorer, Bruno Lage’s team have since signed Diego Costa, who says his return to the Premier League “has lit a fire within”. The Brazilian born Spain international has been without a club since terminating his contract with Atletico Mineiro in January but is expected to return to competitive action today, fitness permitting. Kick-off at Molineux is at 12.30pm but stay tuned in the meantime for team news and build-up.

Wolves striker Sasa Kalajdzic is set for a long spell on the sidelines after undergoing surgery on the ACL he injured in his side’s game against Southampton, his first appearance for the club. Winger Chiquinho is already out with a similar – but worse – injury he suffered in a pre-season match against Burnley. We wish both players well on their long road back to full fitness. Striker Raul Jimenez is sidelined with a groin injury that is expected to keep him out for several weeks.

Manchester City are still without Aymeric Laporte, who is recovering from a knee injury but not expected to return until after the international break, while his fellow defender Kyle Walker could feature after sitting out the Dortmund game with an injury. Jack Grealish and Riyad Mahrez could miss out today having displeased their manager with particularly poor individual performances in midweek.
