Paul Merson makes his Wolves prediction for the week – you can probably guess the rest
It’s that time of the week, Paul Merson tips Wolvess to lose.
It’s become a bone of contention for Wolves fans with his predictions often being a little bit off the mark.
In the defence of the former Aston Villa star, he won’t be the only one to tip Wolves to get dismantled at City.
He also has plenty of positive things to say about Nuno Espirito Santo ‘s side.
He writes: “City struggled at Wolves earlier in the season.
“Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have done great, they’ve come up and had a real go.
“They have been an absolute credit to the Premier League. City look back in their groove after following up the win over Liverpool with emphatic cup victories over Rotherham and Burton.
“City have to be careful, but they should get the job done.”
PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 ( 10/1 with Sky Bet )
Merson predicted a draw in the last game and Palace ended up rolling Wolves over at Molineux.
In his weekly prediction piece he acknowledged his lack of popularity with the fans.
He stated: “Wolves had a great result the other day, I called that game 4-1 – my mate text me who’s a Wolves fan, he said they were singing ‘Merson, what’s the score?’
“Fair play to them, I didn’t see that coming but they were outstanding in the second half. They’ve been a credit this season, and I think it’ll be another open game.
“But Palace, with Wilfried Zaha, Andros Townsend and the pace of Jeffrey Schlupp will cause problems the other way too.”
