Man City could streak clear this weekend

12:32 pm on 28 October 2011

The Manchester City football team can open up an eight-point gap at the top of the English Premier League when they return home to what will be a heroes' welcome in front of almost 50,000 adoring fans for the visit of Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend.

City, who crushed Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford last week to move five points clear at the top, will be meeting Wolves for the second time in four days after their 5-2 League Cup win Thursday.

Meanwhile United make a short, tricky trip to Everton, while third-placed Chelsea have a home game against Arsenal.
