Before going into this weekend FA Cup encounterw, both teams have already been involved in several other games. Let’s check out the latest results that they have been getting to have an idea about their current form.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

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

Wolves haven’t been getting the best of results recently as they won two, draw two and lose one out their last five matches. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men latest two fixtures have been pretty good though as they won one and drew one.

Wolverhampton were close to grab an away win against Chelsea last time around. That result will do no harm with their beliefs and confidence ahead of Saturday clash.

Manchester United

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

Overall, Man United have done a good job recently with three wins, one draw and only one defeat. However, that loss did arrive on their last match, as they were beaten 2-0 by Arsenal.

That defeat was very disappointing and could provide some effect for United mentally. However, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s side are set to give their all in overcoming Wolves.

Match Prediction

Suffering that defeat from Gunners could trigger something positive from Man United players. That negative feeling can be turned into a much needed spirit in overcoming Wolves this Saturday.
