Liverpool fan Coady unveils Wolves’ plan to stop Man City winning Prem title
Wolves captain Conor Coady, a devout Liverpool fan, has opened up on his plan to stop Manchester City after they opened up a three-point gap on the Reds.
After drawing to Tottenham, Jurgen Klopp's men gave City the chance to pull away in the Premier League title race. And that is exactly what they did in same fashion when they steamrolled Newcastle 5-0 on Sunday at the Etihad.
However, it could mean the goal difference could end up being pivotal if City lose a game while they face Wolves next at the Molineux – which is not an easy ground to go to when under pressure. Coady, who grew up a huge Liverpool fan, will be tasked with rallying his troops to stop them from claiming all three points and has stated his plan.
Speaking to talkSPORT, the England international was asked by Laura Woods how they could win on Wednesday night and he said: "By defending well! We have to be compact and be together and stay in the game for as long as possible.
"A lot of teams will probably tell you the same thing as they are so hard to come up against. It is so hard to get the ball off them sometimes and, listen, you want to go into games and keep the ball and have as much possession as you can.

"But we understand the situation when you come up against two of the best teams in the world. Sometimes you have to play a different way and when you have the ball, try affect the game as quick as possible."
Coady grew up on Merseyside and came through the Liverpool academy, making a solitary appearance for them in the Premier League before leaving in 2014. Since then, he has forged a good career for himself as captain of Wolves and a semi-regular member of the England squad but his heart is firmly at the Molineux now.
He added: “Every time I go out for Wolves, I think about nothing else than winning for this football club. I love every part about being at this football club. I loved it ever since I walked through the door and nothing will change.”
