TEAM NEWS: Man City hand debut to Cancelo in Wolves clash

Joao Cancelo has been handed his first Premier League start by Pep Guardiola when City take on Wolves in week eight of league action.

Cancelo has played left-back before, but the fact he has been picked ahead of Zinchenko and Angelino in the absence of Benjamin Mendy is a testament of how Guardiola believes in his abilities.

Other than that, there are no surprises, other than the fact that Bernardo is still on the bench, with Mahrez maintaining his place in the first team.

The pressure is on City after Liverpool opened an eight-point gap following their Saturday win over Leicester City at Anfield.

Manchester City Starting XI: Ederson; Walker, Otamendi, Fernandinho, Cancelo; Rodri, Gundogan, D.Silva; Mahrez, Aguero, Sterling. Subs: Bravo, Jesus, Zinchenko, Angelino, B.Silva, Foden, Garcia.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Starting XI: Rui Patricio; Boly, Coady, Saiss; Dendoncker, Joao Moutinho, Vinagre, Neves, Traore; Cutrone, Jimenez. Subs: Ruddy, Doherty, Vallejo, Bennett, Gibbs-White, Jonny, Kilman.
