Headliner - Erling Haaland (WOL)

Haaland has found the back of the net three times since the restart and is top amongst forwards for 'big chances' (seven). Only Mitrovic (14) has taken more shots in the box (SiB) than the Norwegian international (13). As the below image from our Predicted Lineups feature shows, he is rated at 99% to start. Man. City have scored six goals since the restart with only Arsenal (61), Chelsea (65) and Man. Utd (74) taking more shots than their 59. They trail only their cross-town rivals (16) for 'big chances' (15). Their visitors Wolves have conceded just three goals over the aforementioned period and have kept one clean sheet. The Midlands side are ranked 14th for shots conceded (57) and seventh for SoT conceded (17). Our Fix Algorithm currently projects a point score of 7.8 for Haaland.
