Past Meetings

United came away with a 1-0 win when these sides last met back in the FA Cup third round in January. That replay followed a 0-0 draw in the initial game, and a 1-1 draw at Molineux earlier in the season.

Team News

Manchester United are still without Paul Pogba, who is still unavailable through an ankle injury. Marcush Rashford is also out through a double stress fracture in his lower back. Meanwhile Fred, right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and left-back Brandon Williams are all one booking away from serving a suspension for accumulating 5 yellow cards.

Wolves meanwhile have no such injury worries, but they do have influential midfielder Joao Moutinho and left-back Jonny Otto on four yellow cards, if they pick up a fifth they will havet o serve a suspension in their next league game.

Manchester United vs. Wolves Preview and Predictions

It’s difficult to know what to expect from Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer’s United this season, as they fluctuate from very good to mediocre in the course of a single game. Indeed, Old Trafford hasn’t been a happy place for much of the campaign and fan unrest appears to be reaching toxic levels, so if the game doesn’t go the way of the home side it could get ugly in the stands.

Wolves meanwhile are in a state of flux but have the potential to cause an upset at Old Trafford. Nuno Santo’s side have the capability to get results anywhere they go and they remain one of the Premier League’s most devastating counter-attacking sides. But Wolves have only won one of their last five league games – a come-from-behind 3-2 victory at Southampton – and are in danger of tumbling into mid-table.

The visitors have nevertheless shown they can match United – and didn’t lose to the Red Devils in any of their three meetings last season, drawing at Old Trafford and winning at home in both the league and the cup – so all three results are in play here. With United at 2.20, Wolves at 3.50 and the draw at 3.25, it’s anyone’s game.

Recommended Bets

The game to end in a draw at 3.25

Both teams are blowing hot and cold at the moment, so a draw could be the best option for this game.

Both teams to score at 1.90

Both sides are capable of scoring goals, despite their inconsistency, expect this to happen again here.
