Wolverhampton vs Manchester United Today’s Soccer Prediction
Clear thing? At most on paper. Manchester United will play Wolverhampton Wanderers on Matchday 2. Much work on the Red Devils is expected at the Molineux Stadium – as it was last season. Will the Wolves, currently tenth (0 points, 0-0 goals), annoy the favorites again or will the second-placed Red Devils (3 points, 4-0 goals) live up to their status?
Wolverhampton Wanderers: Form of moment, last results, statistics
The last three season results: 4: 0 vs. Pjunik Erewan, 0: 0 Vs. Leicester City, 4: 0 vs. Pjunik Erewan
The season of Wolverhampton Wanderers is already four games old, which is ultimately the reward for an outstanding season 2018/19.
Completely surprisingly, the newly promoted had secured a place in the Europa League qualification last year, thanks to a balanced team, which brought out of a few possibilities (both in terms of staff and before the gate) the maximum.
So instead of starting up leisurely during the preparation, the Wolves had been playing duty games since the end of July, more precisely qualifying rounds. These mastered the team so far with flying colors: four games, 14: 1 goals.
The last of these games is from last Thursday – 4: 0 against Pjunik Erewan. As in the first leg (4: 0), the British had no problems with the Armenian representative, on the contrary: they dominated the game at will. With Pedro Neto, Michael Gibbs-White, Ruben Vinagre and Diogo Jota, four different players made it into the top scorers’ list, which shows once again: Wolverhampton is a team that convinces through the collective.
Accordingly, the hopes are not based on ManUnited not on individual stars, but on a well-balanced team. Led by the team leaders, defensive chief Coady, midfielder Joao Moutinho, striker Diogo Jota, the team will be looking to repeat their achievements from the previous year: United had scored four points from two games (2: 1, 1: 1)!
That this mission should not be the easiest, was already on the first matchday. This made the Wanderers less successful than hoped, against Leicester City you did not get beyond a drab zero number. Not only that: With less than 30 percent possession and almost no significant scoring chances, two weak teams were even weaker. Therefore, it can be said: At Premier League level Wolverhampton must confirm its previous year form (7th place).
Possible lineup Wolverhampton Wanderers
Wolves coach Nuno Espirito Santo is unlikely to surprise his starting team. After he was able to look after the week successfully, fitness does not speak against the use of his usual regular staff.
Rui Patricio – Bola, Coady, R. Bennett – Jonny Otto, Joao Moutinho, Ruben Neves, Dendoncker, Doherty – Diogo Jota, Raul Jimenez
Manchester United: Form of moment, last results, statistics
The season’s results so far: 4: 0 vs. Chelsea
What a prelude! With a spell casting Manchester United started the season – 4-0 against Chelsea. The players reeled off the grass after the final whistle, but under euphoria lies the shadow of hard work.
The success did not fall in the lap of the Red Devils. Rather, the team had a hard time keeping the blues away from their own goal. Ultimately, it was crucial that United beat clearly better on this mission than Chelsea, who repeatedly revealed major gaps at Old Trafford.
This took advantage of United ice cold: First Marcus Rashford made the penalty spot for the lead before a double strike in the second half made the decision. Only Anthony Martial was right after a cross, then increased Rashford after the most beautiful move of the previous Premier League season to 3-0. Paul Pogba, who also made a strong showing otherwise, found the youngster with a dreamlike outside pass, the Rashford picked down with only one contact – and recycled with the next. With his double pack, the young Briton finally forgot the departure of Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan).
New signing Daniel James rounded off the evening with a 4-0 draw. Five shots on goal, the team needed the bottom line to teach Chelsea one of the worst defeats in recent years.
But it is also clear: At their strong start the team will now have to be measured. If Manchester United can even begin to confirm this form, then next to ManCity and Liverpool could actually put another team claims to the championship title. If the Elf on the other hand fall back into the patterns of the past season (6th place), then the current euphoria would quickly disappear again.
Possible lineup Manchester United
United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer saw an appearance against Chelsea, where there was little to complain about. Accordingly, he should change little.
De Gea – Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw – McTomay, Pogba – Lingard, Pereira, Rashford – Martial
Soccer Betting Prediction Explained Wolverhampton vs Manchester United
Only a year ago, the betting market between ManUnited and Wolverhampton would have played its classic game: On the one hand the house-high favorite, on the other hand, the unknown underdog – with the appropriate odds.
However, if you look at the betting portals these days, it becomes clear: a lot has happened in the past year! Although on the side of Wolverhampton continue to have the higher victory rates, but these are much lower than some fan would probably expect.
The fact that the Red Devils are not regarded as a clear favorite among the bookmakers, has its justification: Although they celebrated an outstanding season match against Chelsea (4-0), but with the Wanderers is now waiting for a team that feared several top teams last year taught – including the Red Devils itself. Four points brought the Wolves from the two duels with the English record champions. A big shot in the face of a squad not worth half as much (313 million) as United (728 million).
As little has happened in terms of personnel in Wolverhampton, you could expect similar achievements from last year’s climber. The problem is that the bonus of the latently underrated underdog, the Wolves have definitely lost after the successful seventh place last year. United will compete in Wolverhampton with great success – and in top form. Anyone who has seen the team make four goals against Chelsea from five chances should be confident of the Red Devils’ victory, despite the undisputed qualities of the hosts.
Prediction of the day: Victory for Manchester United
