Manchester United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Manchester United made it back-to-back league wins after beating Watford 2-1 at Vicarage Road. Quickfire goals from Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling – in the space of three minutes – helped United to a 2-0 lead before halftime. Even though Andre Gray’s goal threatened a comeback, United held on for the win. The Red Devils went on to beat Young Boys 3-0 in the first Champions League group game. Wolves picked up a 1-0 win over Burnley to make the most of their recent form. After creating a load of chances, the Midlands outfit took the lead through Raul Jimenez in the 61st minute.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Manchester United have once again found the winning touch with the team managing three consecutive wins. Wolves also have had a similar run but the club’s last away victory over United was in 1980. Even though this Wolves team is in its best possible shape, they may struggle to contain United. At the same time, Wolves are also more than capable of scoring as they have done against the likes of opponents like Manchester City. I would back both teams to score.

Wolves may have kept three consecutive clean sheets in all competitions, but United are more than capable of scoring even when the likes of Marcus Rashford are unavailable. Lukaku is in great form while Wolves also happen to be excellent going forward – even if they have averaged just a goal per game. I would opt for over 2.5 goals in total.

Manchester United Preview

Manchester United have been able to put behind most of the focus on manager Jose Mourinho by putting together a string of three consecutive wins. The club are now looking to get four consecutive wins for only the second time in 2018. Such has been the inability to put together a strong run of form. Now, however, things do appear to be dropping in place with the club at home in four out of the next five games before they head into the international break in October. United have to thank Romelu Lukaku for the rediscovered form, as the striker has come up with four league goals already.

Manchester United Team News

Nemanja Matic and Marcus Rashford are unavailable due to suspensions. Phil Jones (hamstring), Marcos Rojo (knock), and Ander Herrera (ankle) are unavailable due to injuries.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview

After having gone through an indifferent set of results in the first few weeks of the season, Wolves may have allowed their heads to drop. However, the sign of great team is to push through even when luck is not on their side and Wolves have precisely done that to pick up three consecutive wins in all competitions. Wolves have made a jump into the top half of this early Premier League table. Nuno will be pleased with his team getting back-to-back shutouts, but Wolves would ideally like to score more goals – after having done extremely well going forward. Raul Jimenez is the top scorer at the club with two goals.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Team News

Dominic Iorfa (groin) and Ivan Cavaleiro (back) are the players missing for Nuno.
