Team News

Wolves
Man Utd
  • Daniel Podence made his first appearance of the season in Wolves' League Cup triumph in midweek to bolster Bruno Lage's offensive options.
  • Despite a positive performance against Nottingham Forest, Fabio Silva is expected to drop back to the bench on Sunday.
  • Adama Traore has been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham this week but Lage will hope to have him available to face Manchester United.
  • Lage hasn't nailed down his first choice right-back and Ki-Jana Hoever may keep his place from midweek over Nelson Semedo.
  • Manchester United have remarkably agreed to re-sign Cristiano Ronaldo but he won't be available until after the international break.
  • Anthony Martial should drop to the bench after a poor display against Southampton last weekend, with Mason Greenwood moved centrally. Edinson Cavani is also in contention.
  • Nemanja Matic looked way off the pace in the 1-1 draw with Southampton, which may open the door for Donny van de Beek with McTominay ruled out. Jesse Lingard is also pushing for a start.
  • Jadon Sancho will hope to make his full United debut, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may turn to Raphael Varane over Victor Lindelof given the profile of Wolves' forwards.
  • Dean Henderson is nearing a return from long COVID but David de Gea is United's No.1 for now. Scott McTominay has undergone groin surgery and is also ruled out for the away side.

Prediction

  • Wolves picked up a resounding 4-0 win away to Nottingham Forest on Tuesday, Bruno Lage's first win as manager. They have lost their opening two Premier League matches by 1-0 scorelines, albeit to Leicester and Tottenham.
  • Manchester United suffered an early blow in their title challenge by only managing a 1-1 draw at Southampton. Nevertheless, it extended their unbeaten away run to a record-equalling 27 Premier League matches.
  • Matches between Wolves and United have been particularly dull in the past but United remain favourites to win.

  • Throw between 70 to 80 minutes between Man united and Wolves was 4 but whoscored wrongly count it as 3. Wolves got 3 throws between that time but it counts as 2.

  • Man Utd need a DM. Fred is playing horrible. Ole should start thinking about playing Lindelof in DM

  • Bruno the "midfielder" with an average position higher than Jadon Sancho

  • 75 minutes played and ManU has 1 shot on goal ...

  • @neumi17 And they got all 3 points

  • @neumi17 And they scored with an horrible shot LOL

  • Ole should remove James now. Bring in Cavani in the center and move Greenwood to RW

  • Bruno Lage's Wolverhampton is extremely offensive. Should have won all the matches by multiple goals and is dominating completelly this match so far. I'm hoping the result will match the football played this time.

  • Both to score is also very likely

  • Very likely for Wolves to get points here, they have been deserving to win the matches they lost

  • @hellreaper same story here

  • @normal_fan99 Yup. Unfortunately.

  • 0-3 Utd Varane to have a great debut.

  • Over 1.5 first half

  • 1-3 MU

  • 0-2

  • Wolves - Man United 1:2(0:1)

  • I'm shocked but never the less... Wolves 1 Man United 3
