The most accurate betting pick for today comes from the Monday night English Premier League fixture as we bring you the best Wolves v Man United prediction. The Wanderers were the bright surprise last season as they finished seventh and managed to win a Europa League qualification while displaying a very positive and attack-minded football. Meanwhile, United started the season on very high note thumping Chelsea 4:0 at Old Trafford. All factors are in for a real spectacle at the Molineux, but what will the outcome be?
We are starting this Wolves v Man United prediction by examining the hosts. The Wanderers have already played five official matches as their season started much earlier, due to their involvement in the Europe League qualifiers. It means they are a step ahead compared to the Red Devils in terms of their sharpness and form. They breezed through the first two qualifying rounds of the Europa League by beating Crusaders and Pyunik and recorded a goalless draw in their Premier League opener away to Leicester. So they’ve had good results to start this season.
Another major positive for the Wanderers is they managed to keep their core players. Usually, when smaller clubs like that make a good season, they cash in by selling their top players, but it appears that Wolves are here to stay and improve further. Starting at goal, Rui Patricio has been exceptional, Matt Doherty has light up the Fantasy Football charts with his goals and assists from the right flank, Ryan Bennet and Willy Boly have formed a strong duo in the center of the defense. Joao Moutinho is orchestrating the team in the middle of the pitch. Ruben Neves is roaming on the wing. Jota has been an absolute revelation along with Raul Jimenez. Patrick Cutrone was signed this summer from AC Milan, a hard-working forward that was a fan favorite in Milano. If their record signing (from last year) Adama Traore can get back to his best days, Wolves will surely be in the upper half of the table this year as well. And last but certainly not least, they’ve got a great coach in Nuno Espirito Santo.
Our Wolves v Man United prediction for August 19 would not be complete if we don’t account for what these clubs did last season. It might come as a surprise to you, but United could not beat them in all three games they played. Wolves won by 2:1 both games played at the Molienux, the first was for the Premier League and the second victory clinched them a semifinal place for the FA Cup. The game at Old Trafford ended in 1:1 draw.
In our final segment of our Wolves v Man United prediction and analysis, we take a look at the visitors. United made a blistering start to their new campaign with their 4:0 win against Chelsea. Yes, it was sort of an unfair result as they weren’t the better side by that much. In fact, the Blues dominated for large parts of the game, but it’s the end result that counts. Solskajer has done right to put his faith in the youngsters, because that’s the United way.
Ole decided to ditch Lukaku and pair up Rashord with Martial up front in sort of a Andy Cole – Dwight York tandem, just like in his old playing days. That’s the right move in my opinion, because it allows the team to play the system and style that he likes – quick counter attacks on the break. Lukaku was too slow for that sort of playing style, and they cashed in well on him banking over 70 million Euros from Inter. Lingard is expected to support them in sort of an attacking midfield position. Harry Macquire was excellent in his first game for the club and the youngster David James had a goal on his debut, so he might turn into something really special for the club. Pogba appears to be settled, at least for now, as he put on a strong performance against Chelsea with two assists.
Wolves v Man United Prediction: We expect an open game with two or more goals in it. There is a lot of quality in both sides, so we expect a Goal/Goal here.
