Manchester City are tasked with fighting back against not just Arsenal’s title race lead but the questions of their character by their own coach when they face Wolves today.
Pep Guardiola launched into a critique of the character of both his players and fans after a midweek comeback win over Tottenham, making this quick return to the Etihad Stadium extra intriguing.
Wolves, meanwhile, got a big win against relegation rivals West Ham last time out, albeit that was followed up by a disappointing loss to a rotated Liverpool side in the FA Cup.
