Wolves Face Manchester United In Monday Night Football
After another frantic weekend of Premier League action, it’s time to turn our attention towards Monday Night Football as Wolverhampton Wanderers go head to head with Manchester United. These two historic clubs within English football have met many, many times over the years, and while United have historically been more successful, Wolves were able to beat United twice in a matter of weeks last season. That may not be relevant to tomorrow night’s game, but either way, this fixture is no longer being viewed as a David vs Goliath kind of affair.
Wolves have their Europa League adventure to worry about later on in the week, as they are just one two-legged tie against Torino away from playing in the group stage of the competition. In the Premier League, they got off to an odd start against Leicester City last weekend, drawing 0-0 after having a goal ruled out for handball. In terms of team news, Vallejo and Cutrone aren’t expected to be rushed into the starting XI, so we can probably expect to see Jimenez and Jota featuring up top with Nuno making a series of changes from the game against Pyunik.
Manchester United’s thrilling 4-0 triumph over Chelsea last weekend certainly got the fans excited, as they begin to look ahead to what could be a much better season than anyone was anticipating. They can’t count their chickens before they hatch, though, as Wolves will serve as tough opposition for them. Bailly and Sanchez are still out of action, with very few changes being expected following the win over Chelsea. Matic or James could come into the side in order to replace Pereira, whereas at the back, Maguire and Wan-Bissaka will continue to feature after stunning debuts at Old Trafford.
Wolves vs Manchester United Betting Prediction
Wolves are going to come at United with everything they’ve got, but you can’t get away from the fact that they’ve got a huge game to contend with against Torino in just a few days time. We think it’s going to be competitive for the first half, before Wolves start to turn one eye towards the Europa League and United capitalise on that. We don’t think they’re going to run away with it quite like they did against Chelsea last week, but we do see them winning, which could be huge for their confidence – especially after a less than impressive weekend from City and Liverpool.
