Wolves Prediction – Can Wolves stay focused?

Last season was a breakthrough season for Wolves as they returned to the Premier League after several disappointing campaigns in the Championship finally paid dividends as Wolves not only got promoted, but also finished in 7th place which earned them qualification for the Europa League.

The west midlands club have progressed through the qualifying rounds of the competition by virtue of collecting wins over Irish side, Crusaders, with a 6-1 aggregate win which was followed by an equally impressive and resounding two-legged victory over Armenian club, Pyunik, with an 8-0 aggregate win.

However, Wolves will now have to balance an upcoming and gruelling Premier League campaign with their European commitments, and they have an important fixture ahead of them on Thursday night when they take on Serie A side, Torino, especially as the 1st leg is in Italy.

Wolves were a revelation in the top flight last season though and they finished the season with an impressive home record of 10-4-5 28/21, which culminated in Wolves winning 7 of their last 8 matches on home turf at Molineux.

Forwards Jimenez and Dioga Jota with the attacking presence of midfielder Neves should cause Manchester United some problems on Monday night.

Manchester United Prediction – Can Manchester United lay down marker?

An emphatic 4-0 thrashing over Chelsea in last weekend’s season opener at Old Trafford was a welcome victory for Solskjaer and his squad as they made a positive start to their new Premier League campaign by vanquishing one of their rivals for a top four finish this term.

United made the most of their opportunities against a decidedly lacklustre Chelsea outfit that lacked any real quality on the ball, as the London club clearly missed the presence of their former star player, Eden Hazard, and his influence on a game.

That resounding win over Chelsea became Manchester United’s seventh win on the trot in all competitions, with the majority of these results admittedly being achieved in their pre-season preparations for this upcoming top flight season.

After failing to win any of their final 5 matches of last season, Manchester United and Solskjaer will be desperate to continue this winning streak and momentum with them when they make their way to the west midlands this Sunday.

In addition, improvement on the road is crucial if they’re to secure a top four finish after they finished last season with 3 defeats from their last 4 on their travels, which included a 2-1 defeat to today’s hosts, Wolves.


Key-Facts – Wolves v Manchester Utd

  • Wolves finished last season in 7th place in their return to the Premier League
  • Manchester United have won their last 7 matches on the trot in all competitions
  • All 3 meetings between these two sides last season resulted in both teams scoring


Betting Tips Verdict

Wolves will be keen to record a win in this first home game of the season and they know they’ve done it before against United, while the visitors will want to lay down a marker and record back-to-back wins.
