Wolves v Man Utd Betting Tips: Can Wolves upset the Red Devils again?

Odds and preview for Premier League clash

Manchester United take on Wolves tonight knowing that three points could be vital in the race for a top-four spot.

Wolves may have a FA Cup semi-final to look forward to this weekend, but they’ll want to maintain their superb record against the big six this term. They even dumped United out of the Cup at Molineux a few weeks ago.

Can the Red Devils get their own back this time around? Keep reading for all the pre-match info, before it gets underway at 7:45pm tonight…

Head-to-Head

Wolves have had the better of the two meetings between the sides this term. As well as that cup win mentioned earlier, they also earned a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford back in September.

It’s no surprise that United have tended to dominate the head-to-head clashes in recent history though. The Manchester side have won nine of the 13 meetings since the turn of the century, Wolves have won three and there’s been a single draw.

Likely XIs

Wolves v Man Utd teams

Raul Jimenez and Matt Doherty will come back into the starting XI for Wolves after being rested at the weekend.

Romain Saiss is also set to continue as part of the back three, with Ryan Bennett still suspended.

With so many games coming up, Solskjaer may not risk Anthony Martial after the Frenchman picked up a knock. He’ll be glad Jesse Lingard is available to start in his absence.

Romelu Lukaku could also start alongside Marcus Rashford in attack, while Victor Lindelof is set to return at the back.

Key Battles

Wolves fully deserved their victory in the last meeting between the two sides. Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho controlled midfield, while Jimenez and Diogo Jota’s link up play was excellent in attack.

United will look to Paul Pogba to exert his influence over the midfield battle, while Lingard’s smart running could help to unsettle the Wolves backline.

The tussle between Luke Shaw and Doherty on the flank could play a major part here. Doherty has been a key outlet for the hosts. If Shaw shuts him down, they could find it hard to get the ball into advanced areas.

Match Odds

With so much at stake for United, we’ve got them as 19/20 favourites. Will Wolves have one eye on Saturday’s cup semi-final against Watford? They’re at 14/5, with 23/10 about the draw.

It’s also 5/6 for both sides to score against each other for the third time this season.

Lukaku heads up the First Goalscorer betting at 7/2, with his strike partner Rashford 15/8 to net anytime.

Jimenez and Jota both netted the last time United came to town. They’re 2/1 and 14/5 respectively to do so again this time.
