Recent Form

Before heading into this Monday’s premier league battle, both teams have been involved in other matches. Let’s check out the latest results that they have been getting to have more information about their current form.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Recent form in all competition (last five matches): WWWDW

Only picking up a point on their opening league fixture, Wolves will target three points against United. Drawing 0-0 in their first premier league tie against Leicester is not too disappointing of a result for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

Their success in Europa League so far will lift their confidence for the Monday clash. Wolves won’t be afraid in targeting maximum points against Man United especially after their success against The Red Devils last season.

Continuing their fine preseason result, Man United were able to start their season with a win. Solksjaer’s men beat Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford last weekend to give them a huge morale booster.

Man U will be pushing for another positive result on Monday, despite having to play an away match. Traveling to Wolves won’t be an easy ride, but United will give their best shot.

Team News

Wolverhampton  Wanderers

Nuno will have a full available squad that he can choose from for the Monday encounter. Having another midweek tie won’t stop the tactician from putting on his best possible squad.

Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez will still be the main option to start up front for Nuno’s squad. Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker are also set to form that solid midfield setup for Wolves.

Manchester United

Solksjaer will still be without Eric Bailly at the back, but with Maguire’s arrival there should be much problem there. Alexis Sanchez most likely won’t be available as he is being strongly linked with a move away.

Man U are set to continue counting on Rashford, Martial and Lingard attacking trio. Solksjaer will once again hope that his defense can handle Wolves attacking threat.

Head to Head Records:

In their last five meetings, both teams shared similar records with two wins, two defeats and one draw.

Their latest match up was back on April 3rd 2019 in a premier league tie which Wolverhampton won 2-1.

Match Prediction

Wolves will play with much more energy and confidence as they search for that first league win this season. Nuno Santo is set to put on strong side, despite their midweek Europa League schedule.

Man United themselves are set to battle hard in getting their second win for this new season. It should be a tight encounter with both teams capable of beating each others.

Final Score: 2-1
