Manchester City midfielder David Silva is set to break a club record during Monday’s Premier League game at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers, according to FourFourTwo.

The Spanish playmaker will make his 267th Premier League appearance for the Citizens, surpassing the club record previously held by Joe Hart.

City boss Pep Guardiola has also picked Gabriel Jesus in attack after the striker returned to form with a four-goal haul in the team’s 9-0 drubbing of Burton Albion in the EFL Cup semi-final first leg.

Sergio Aguero, who has been suffering from illness, starts on the bench alongside Kevin De Bruyne, who’s easing his way into full fitness after playing only six league games so far this season.

With Benjamin Mendy still out injured, Danilo starts at left-back with John Stones and Aymeric Laporte as the centre-backs and Kyle Walker on the right.

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito-Santo makes two changes to the team that beat Liverpool 2-1 in the FA Cup, with Rui Patricio back between the sticks and Matt Doherty restored to the right-wing back position.
