Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Matt Doherty has issued a warning to Manchester City, asserting that his team won’t lower their standards despite having little at stake in the final weeks of the season.

As Wolves gear up to face City at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday at 5:30 pm, Doherty emphasised the club’s determination to “cause a bit of a shock” by securing a victory. Gary O’Neil’s side previously defeated City 2-1 in September, marking one of only three Premier League losses suffered by the champions during the 2023/24 season.

A potential repeat of this upset victory would deal a significant blow to City’s hopes of retaining their title, thereby granting Arsenal an advantage in the title race. While the Gunners currently lead the league by a single point, City’s pending fixture gives them the upper hand.

Despite Wolves having little to play for in their remaining three matches, having secured Premier League survival but being out of contention for European qualification, Doherty stressed that this would not diminish their resolve against Manchester City.


“We’ve got a whole week to prepare for City. We’ve beaten them already this season, so it’s a game we want to be competitive in and cause a bit of a shock at the top of the league,” remarked Doherty in an interview with the club’s website.

He further emphasised that any dip in standards would not be tolerated within the team, reaffirming their commitment to securing positive results in each game. Despite a recent seven-game winless streak, Wolves secured a crucial victory last week against Luton Town, boosting morale within the squad.

“It was massive for us,” Doherty commented on the victory. “No win in seven and we still have aspirations to finish in the top 10, so we knew with two home games and two away games left, we knew the home games were vitally important. We made it a bit close for comfort at the end, more than we needed to, but it was a good win.”
