Wolves v Manchester United betting tips: Unbeaten away record on the line

| 22.05.2021

Preview and odds for Sunday’s match

Manchester United’s focus is already turning to the Europa League final but first they go to Molineux to face Wolves looking to complete the Premier League season unbeaten on the road.

Wolves cannot climb any higher than 12th but could slip three places if they lose and results elsewhere go against them as manager Nuno Espirito Santo bids farewell to the club after four years in charge.

Sunday’s match is live on BT Sport and kicks off at 4pm as we highlight a few potential Wolves v Manchester United betting tips.

Wolves v Manchester United match odds

Manchester United have already secured second place in the Premier League so effectively have nothing to play for in their final match.

That is reflected in the odds for this game, with Wolves priced up as the 31/20 favourites and United 7/4 for the win while the Red Devils would presumably settle for a draw at 5/2 which preserves their unbeaten away record.

Neither side is in great form, with Wolves having suffered back-to-back defeats at Tottenham and Everton and winning just one of their last five games.

United failed to make the most of three successive home matches, picking up just one point from the visits of Leicester, Liverpool and Fulham.

They have only managed one clean sheet in their last eight games and both teams to score is available at 8/15 while over 3.5 total goals is 33/20.

Wolves v Manchester United head-to-head

United’s recent results hint at a high-scoring game but goals have been in short supply in recent meetings with Wolves.

Last season’s four encounters in the Premier League and FA Cup produced just three goals, with the cup tie going to a replay which United won 1-0 after a goalless stalemate at Molineux.

This season’s match at Old Trafford also ended in a 1-0 win for United and the breakthrough only came in stoppage time thanks to Marcus Rashford’s deflected strike.

Man of the match Romain Saiss was Wolves’ biggest threat but made an unwanted impact when Rashford’s effort hit him and found the back of the net.

Another 1-0 win for United is 10/1 while under 1.5 goals is 3/1 despite having paid out in the last four meetings.

Previous XI

Wolves vs Manchester United - Football tactics and formations
Wolves: Ruddy, Ait Nouri, Boly, Coady, Semedo, Kilman, Neves, Gibbs-White, Moutinho, Silva, Traore.

Man Utd: De Gea, Lindelof, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Pogba, Fred, Fernandes, McTominay, Cavani, Greenwood.

Team news

Daniel Podence had groin surgery on Monday and it is hoped the Wolves winger will be fit for the start of next season, while Pedro Neto (knee) and full-back Jonny (knee) also remain on the sidelines.

Harry Maguire and Anthony Martial remain sidelined for Manchester United. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects Maguire (ankle) to miss the Europa League final , with Martial (knee) also looking touch and go. Scott McTominay and Fred have overcome issues sustained in the draw with Fulham, while Daniel James is available.

Key battles

Willy Boly, Wolves

United’s players will be keen to avoid a battle as they look to steer clear of any injuries which would rule them out of Wednesday’s clash with Villarreal in Poland.

Several players may hope to get the chance to boost their prospects of a starting place, including Mason Greenwood who blanked against Fulham on Tuesday when Marcus Rashford was on the bench.

Whoever United put up front will be a test for Wolves centre-back Willy Boly, who returned to the team in midweek after finally overcoming Covid-19.
