Manchester United Need 3 Points Against AN Underperforming But Solid Wolves Side

Wolves host Manchester United at the Molineux Sunday in Match week three of the Premier League. The club are looking to make a statement win after dropping points against a beatable Southampton last Sunday.

Even though it’s the start of the season United dropping two points against Southampton has fans worried. United were unable to keep hold of the ball in midfield with Fred and Matic particularly guilty of losing possession. It is a big week for the club after the confirmation of Ronaldo.

The Red Devils looked much better with Scott McTominay starting alongside Fred in center mid against Leeds. Unfortunately McTominay had a groin issue and needed surgery this week. He will be out of the squad for a few weeks meaning Matic will likely get the start again.

Fans are wondering if Raphael Varane will get his full debut. United are one win away from breaking Arsenal’s away games unbeaten streak. Look for Ole to make no mistakes and give Varane and Sancho their full debuts Sunday. United will need to be on the front foot and attack, attack, attack against a Wolves side that will be full of confidence.  

After beating Nottingham Forrest midweek 4-0 Wolves will be believe they can come away with at least a point Sunday. Wolves have lost both of their opening matches against Leicester and Spurs 1-0, but both matches were close affairs. Bruno Lage’s side will be more of an attacking threat than Southampton was last Sunday. 

Wolves can be vulnerable at the back when they are attacking so look for United to attack on the break. In the past six matches United have played against Wolves there was only 1 goal scored by either team. Don’t look for this to be a high scoring match for either side.

Paul Pogba looked like a real threat attacking down the left against Southampton. If Sancho starts on the right look for Anthony Martial or Mason Greenwood to get a goal. Bruno Fernandes’ free kicks will also be a real problem for Wolves Sunday. Varane or Maguire will score from a Fernandes free kick Sunday.

The Red Devils should win this 2-0 with Greenwood and Maguire on the score sheet.
