Striker Mario Balotelli is Manchester City's only absentee for the trip to Molineux on Sunday. The Italian misses the trip as he completes a three-match ban for his sending off in the defeat at Arsenal a fortnight ago. Manager Roberto Mancini reports no other injury concerns with Yaya Toure having made a successful return from a knee injury against Norwich last week.

Wolves goalkeeper Dorus de Vries is poised to make his first Premier League start for the club against Manchester City at Molineux on Sunday. De Vries, signed last summer from Swansea, will replace Wayne Hennessey who is side-lined for up to six months with knee ligament damage. On-loan defender Sebastien Bassong is available after serving a one-game ban for his red card against Arsenal while winger Matt Jarvis, rested against Sunderland, is in contention to return to the side.

Carlos Tevez has scored four goals in three Premier League games against Wolves.
Wolves have lost their last eight home league games, the second worst run in Premier League history (Sunderland; 10).

Wanderers have also conceded in their last 16 home league games. If they concede here, they will equal the Premier League record of 17 home games without a clean sheet.

In the three PL games that Carlos Tevez & Sergio Aguero have started together, the pair have netted 11 goals between them (Aguero 7, Tevez 4).
