Wolves defender Semedo convinced of advantage facing Man City

Wolves defender Nelson Semedo senses they have an advantage facing Manchester City in the early kickoff today.

Wolves had a free week going into the game, while City were involved in the Champions League.

Semedo said: “It’s a good thing for us that they played on Wednesday as they only have two days to recover. The game is at 12.30pm, so it’s a good thing for us.

“We started to prepare the game on Monday to have everything clear for when we arrive at Molineux to play our game, to have the ball as well, because we want to have the ball, even against City.

“They are a team that have the ball most of the time, but we want to have the ball. We are playing at home, in front of our fans so we will work hard to get points.”

On facing Erling Haaland, he added: “He’s an exceptional player, a very good player. He has a lot of goals already since he’s arrived and it doesn’t look like it’s his first season here.

“But we have a strong defence as well, I spoke about Max and Collins, and we are prepared for the match.”
