Wolves Faces Man U – Game Predictions and Vital Insights

Sep 11, 2022

WOLVERHAMPTON, England – Predictions for Sunday’s Premier League match between Wolves and Manchester United at Molineux. Wolves will visit Manchester United on Sunday in an effort to pick up their first Premier League victory under Bruno Lage. For all and more free picks and betting advice, continue reading.

In contrast, Manchester United has won four of their previous six away Premier League games. Mason Greenwood has scored eight goals in his last 10 Premier League appearances. It is important to remember that the Wolves have lost their last five Premier League games while only scoring one goal.

The Wolves just may have lost their fangs

Wolves managed to win their first game under Bruno Lage in midweek, but an EFL Cup success against Nottingham Forest won’t be enough to allay the skeptics who have witnessed the new manager guide Wolves to back-to-back 1-0 losses in the Premier League. 

Fair enough, they were rather unlucky not to win both matches against Leicester and Tottenham, but their lack of a cutting edge up front is clear, and it will be concerning as they attempt to snap a five-game losing skid in the Premier League on Sunday.

Visitor Power of Man U

Last Saturday, Manchester United tied Arsenal for the most straight Premier League away games without a loss, but that 1-1 draw at Southampton was disappointing for United supporters. They had several opportunities to score in the first half, but they didn’t take advantage of them, and they were penalized as a result. 

However, the unexpected arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo will lift spirits at the team, and they should be confident enough to capitalize on Wolves’ poor play, especially after winning four of their past six away games in the Premier League.

Ronaldo to support a steady Greenwood for Man U

For Ronaldo, the trip to Molineux will come too soon, but away supporters shouldn’t worry too much as long as Mason Greenwood is on the field. He scored the equalizer at St. Mary’s in the second half after being brought in from the right during the first match, when he was used through the middle to devastating effect against Leeds. 

With eight goals in his previous 10 Premier League games, Greenwood seems like a decent value bet to lead Manchester United to victory. A 2-0 correct score prediction also sounds appealing because I anticipate Wolves to put on another lackluster offensive display.

In hindsight

In five of Wolverhampton’s previous seven Premier League games, there have been fewer than 2.5 goals.

The last two head-to-head matches in the Premier League were won by Manchester United by a single goal. 

Possible line ups

Predicted starting lineup for the Wolves is as follows: Sa; Kilman, Coady, Saiss; However, Neves, Moutinho, Marcal; Trincao, Traore, Jimenez. 

De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Shaw; Fred; Matic; Sancho; Fernandes; Pogba; Greenwood are the expected Manchester United starting lineup.
