Wolfsburg take on Manchester City on Saturday 4th August, 2012, with kickoff at 19:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ESPN.
After taking the Premier League title in the most dramatic of fashion Manchester City have not really replicated their big-spending from last summer, to the chagrin of Roberto Mancini, but there is some sound thinking behind that. The side will naturally evolve and progress with time, meaning the level of play will rise and there is also little point spending for the sake of it.
This team has a few members looking to prove they are worth keeping, in particular the strikers who will be aware there may be a new Arsenal player arriving, so you can expect some committed performances this evening.
