The second round of the Premier League season 2019-20 ends on Monday when Wolves play Manchester United. It takes place at Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton where this team was brilliant last season. But, can they get anything out of this match when in-form Man United are coming to town? Find out in the Wolves vs Manchester United prediction and betting tips!
The team from Wolverhampton was brilliant last season even though it was their first since arriving from the Championship. They were pretty impressive throughout the season, which resulted in them ending at the 7th place. Thanks to that fact, they got themselves a chance to compete for a place in the Europa League.
Over the summer, they brought it a couple of interesting players, most notably Patrick Cutrone, a 21-year-old striker who came from AC Milan. With a couple of additions over the summer, Wolves created a team that could not only end on the 7th place again but which could challenge one of the top 6 spots.
They started the Premier League season with a draw in Leicester, which finished without any goals scored. Still, it’s fair to say they were lucky not to lose it, considering that Leicester City players had the ball in their possession for most of the time. Wolves did have their chances but they were far from dangerous.
If they play the same kind of football once again, they can’t expect for a good result against high-flying Man United. And even if they were in a superb form, they still wouldn’t be favourites in this game. Actually, no matter what, our Wolves vs Manchester United prediction would slide towards the away team’s favour.
They spent a lot of money over the summer, but it seems it was worth it. Manchester United now have a team that’s capable of hammering Chelsea 4:0. Exactly that happened in the opening round, bringing a huge confidence boost to the Red Devils.
This team now looks strong in all areas of the pitch, but especially at the back. Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka seem like perfect additions to the backline of this team. They’re travelling to Wolverhampton certain that they’re gonna keep another clean sheet.
But, can they score? They scored four against Chelsea, but Manchester United don’t look too powerful in the final third since they’ve sold Lukaku to Inter. Well, the thing is that their coach Solskjaer wanted to get rid of the powerful Belgian striker in order to be able to play his preferred style of football. Instead of the strong but slow Lukaku, Man United now have super-pacey players like Martial and Rashford in the final third, which makes them fantastic in counter-attacks.
However, there won’t be too many opportunities for counter-attacks in the game against Wolves. The hosts are expected to defend with all they got, so finding the net won’t be that easy for the Red Devils. Still, this doesn’t mean our Wolves vs Chelsea betting tip will be a draw. No, the away team will probably win the game.
Manchester United absentees:
- Eric Bailly (injury)
- Alexis Sanchez (injury)
Rui Patricio – Boly, Jonny Castro, Coady, Doherty, Bennett – Moutinho, Dendonker, Neves – Jota, Jimenez
De Gea – Maguire, Lindelof, Wan-Bissaka, Shaw – Matic, Pogba, McTominay – James, Rashford, Martial
Wolves vs Manchester United Prediction
Manchester United players are expected to dominate the pitch, but finding the net won’t be that easy as Wolves are great at defending. Still, the Red Devils should be able to break the opponents’ defense eventually.
