Wolves News and Form – Will Wolves make it three in a row against United?

Wolves were denied a win at Leicester on the opening weekend of the Premier League season by VAR. They had a second-half strike ruled out because of a totally accidentally handball. The fact that all the celebrating had been done and the two teams had line up for the restart before a long delay called off the goal, made it even more bitter. Still, Wolves have to be happy with a good away point and a clean sheet to boot from their first game. Last season they banked 2-1 home wins over United in both the league and the FA Cup so have reasons to be confident on Monday night.

Wolves have been cruising through the UEFA Europa League qualifiers so they have gotten plenty of games under their belt. They look a wonderfully tight and settled unit do Wolves. They banked a very good W10 D4 L5 record on home soil last season. Against the other top ten finishers last season, Wolves earned a W5 D2 L2 record so they can handle themselves. The two losses in that home sequence were against Spurs and Liverpool. Just 37% of league games at Molineux last season returned at over 2.5 goals.

Manchester United News and Form – Can United survive Molineux test?

It was all too easy against Chelsea’s wide-open defence last weekend for Manchester United. The Red Devils powered their way to a 4-0 home win over the Blues to start the new campaign in a highly positive fashion. That was even after they were outplayed in the first half of the fixture. Still, realistically this is not going to be anywhere near as open of a game for them.

So this is likely to be a bigger test of United’s patience as well as their creativity in the middle of the park, which has been called into question by pundits pre-season. They don’t have a great midfield line up it’s fair to say.  Away from home in last season’s top flight, Manchester United earned a W9 D3 L7 record. It fell apart badly for them at the end of the season though as they only posted a D1 L3 record in their last four road games.

One of those defeats were at Wolves. As a positive from last weekend, they made the most of a poor Chelsea defence that was in front of them. Marcus Rashford got a brace last weekend and is the 7/4 anytime goalscorer favourite for this fixture* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on August 15th, 2019 at 8:15 p.m.). The negative will have been how many easy chances that they gave up defensively in a wide-open game.
