Man City to Win First-Half

The last time Manchester City met Wycombe Wanderers, they were plying their trade in League One. The Chairboys are still in the third division, while City are the reigning Premier League champions. They enter this fixture on the back of four wins and a draw in their last five fixtures. Wycombe’s tally of two wins, two losses and a draw is admirable, to say the least. There is only one way this fixture will end and Pep Guardiola’s men will force their will early in the fixture.

Over 3.5 Goals

At the end of the regulation play against Southampton, Manchester City players looked indignant with the 0-0 draw. They had scored 17 goals in their previous four fixtures. The result against the Saints will be looked at as an anomaly as the Citizens host Wycombe, three leagues their junior. It will be a goal-fest despite the Wanderers best defensive inclinations.

Both Teams to Score: No

The last time Manchester City met Wycombe Wanderers, the Citizens lost both legs during the 1998/99 season in League One. They could only score once across but that was a different team. Despite the absence of a recognized forward, Pep Guardiola’s men should have no trouble in getting on the scoreboard. The same cannot be said about the Wanderers and their ability to get past Ruben Dias.

Man City vs Wycombe Fixture Preview

Manchester City

Pep Guardiola’s call for fans support worked by it did not inspire his players who looked fatigued against Southampton after their 6-3 win over Red Bull Salzburg. A similar performance in the EFL Cup will not be tolerated by the Catalan manager, who would have ironed out their creativity issues against the Saints. The Citizens are unbeaten in their last five matches, winning the latter four and will look to continue their defence of the EFL Cup.

Wycombe Wanderers

The trip to Etihad Stadium will probably be the highlight of Wycombe Warriors 2021/22 season. While they will not come out to make the number, not much is expected from Gareth Ainsworth’s men, who have already crashed out of the EFL Trophy. Nevertheless, the Chairboys will be spirited and have the opportunity to give their rivals a tough time as they miss out on five first-team players, including Aymeric Laporte and John Stones.
