Why has Wolves vs Manchester City been postponed? Reason Premier League match won’t go ahead this weekend

The Premier League match between Wolves vs Man City has been postponed this weekend.

Wolves were due to host Man City this weekend as they look to continue their pursuit of European football, while Pep Guardiola’s side remain top of the Premier League after their draw with Liverpool.

Despite City winning their previous three meetings, Wolves have proved to be a boogie team for them in the past - winning the three matches before that.

While both sides would have seen this weekend’s clash as a good opportunity to strengthen their position in the table, they will now have to wait a little longer to face off.

Wolves vs Man City has now been postponed, meaning the hosts will have a short break before they travel to Turf Moor next weekend.

Why was Wolves v Man City postponed?

The Premier League clash was confirmed to be rescheduled last month after Man City beat Southampton 4-1 in the FA Cup quarter-final.

Goals from Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Riyad Mahrez confirmed their place in the semi-final.

The current league champions’ progression through the FA Cup now means they will face Liverpool in the next round on Saturday April 16 - the day before they were due to travel to Molineux Stadium.

Prior to this weekend, Wolves are one of only four teams that have played the maximum number of league matches so far this season (32).

When will the match be played?

Wolves v Man City has been penned in for a midweek in May, though a date has yet to be confirmed.

However, Liverpool’s postponed fixture against Aston Villa has been rescheduled for Tuesday May 10 and so the Molineux meeting could be set for the same week.

There will be limited time elsewhere for the two teams to fulfil the fixture - especially if City continue to progress through the Champions League stages.
