Wolves Form & Team News

Wolves were left frustrated on the opening day following a 0-0 draw away at Leicester City. The West Midlands based club were the division’s first victims of a VAR decision and will feel hard done to not to have claimed all 3 points.

Nuno’s team come into Monday’s game on a fine run of form and the manager is likely to give the majority of his team time to rest when his team play host to Pyunik in the Europa League.

Wolves have a strong record against Manchester United at Molineux over the years, and the encounter between the two teams ended in 2-1 victory for Wolves last time out. The club are on a fine run of form at home, having won 11 of their last 13 games in all competitions at the venue. Their last defeat came on the 2nd of January to Crystal Palace.

The home side are currently priced at 3.30 with bet365 for the victory at Molineux, which is an excellent value bet given their fine form at the stadium.

Manchester United Form & Team News

Manchester United were the stars of the opening weekend, defeating Frank Lampard’s Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford. Debutant Daniel James made the headlines with an opening day goal, while Marcus Rashford grabbed a brace and Anthony Martial also made his way onto the scoresheet.

Solsjaker is likely to look at those two men to lead the line once again and it seems improbable that he would alter a winning side before his team head to Wolves.

Despite their impressive start, there is no ignoring the fact that Ole’s side are one of the weakest United sides in recent years. They have struggled to play away from Old Trafford, losing three of their last five away games, and drawing one of them.

They are favourites for the game at 2.15 with bet365. The club are often overvalued because of their status and their most recent result. Their recent away form shouldn't be ignored though and it suggests that this is probably not a great bet to place.

Wolves vs Manchester United Analysis-  Back to earth with a bang for United

Manchester United’s opening day victory has managed to get fans believing again but Monday’s away game is likely to bring them back down to earth.

Wolves are a very difficult side to defeat at home and they have a team who are currently full of confidence. Raul Jimenez has already grabbed 4 goals in the Europa League for the team and will be itching to get off the mark at home in the Premier League.

United’s young team are hungry but they have struggled away from home in recent months and the Molineux is one of the toughest grounds to visit in the Premier League right now.

Wolves vs Manchester United Tips- Wolves to cause the upset

Wolves are shaping up to be one of the best teams in the Premier League once again this season and a victory against Manchester United will certainly put the rest of the division on high alert on Monday.

At odds of 3.30 to win the match, Wolves are far too good of a proposition to ignore this week. United struggled to win at Molineux last campaign and there is very little to suggest that they have made the improvements required to pick up their away form this year.
