With six goals, Callum Wilson tops the goal-scoring charts. When it comes to injuries, Paul Dummett is the only one who is out due to a calf issue.
Manchester City has won six Premier League games in a row, defeating Manchester United, Everton, West Ham United, Aston Villa, Watford, Wolves, and Leeds.
