Week 2 of the Premier League season finishes up on Monday afternoon as unbeaten Manchester United travels to Wolverhampton, to do battle with the Wolves.
Wolverhampton were definitely among those jolt outfits from last season. Scoring frequently, defending well, and brilliant approaches from manager Nuno Espirto Santo. Last week that they drew 0-0 in Leicester City, but deserved a much better fate. In relation to anticipated goals, the natives outplayed their opponents also had many chances throughout. This is a squad that can score and should be able to get the back of the internet as they return home on Monday. Last year, the Wolves beat Manchester United in the two fixtures, although the Red Devils seem to be much enhanced — that the Wolves have their sights firmly set on a top-six spot.
For Manchester United, what a start it was. If any staff wanted a 4-0 success, it was certainly them. It enabled the team to breathe and gave an cushion to trainer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer also. The Red Devils have an improved side in 2019, deeper front and strong in the back. When there are still holes within the midfield, they’ve finally injected more youth to the squad and that should help with their pace moving ahead.
This ought to be a riveting match. Both sides have tons of attacking flair and creativity up front. Keep reading below the odds for a thorough preview, tactical breakdown, along with a winning bet to terminate the week off on a high note. Enjoy Wolves vs. Man U!
Manchester United (+135)
More than 2.5 (+120)
Under 2.5 (-140)
This should be an absolute cracker of match. Both groups are expected to announce quite attack-minded lineups when those get posted about one hour before kickoff, and it should result in an exciting game.
Manchester United tore apart Chelsea a week, as their ball motion and rate was deadly. That said, going into the Molineux makes for a tough setting, and though the Wolves have their own difficulties at the back — the strain they put on other teams’ back-lines must worry the Red Devils.
For United’s defense — it has immediately become a good group once again. Aaron Wan-Bissaka is very long, rangy, also immensely talented in the back, while the central pairing of Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire provides the squad that the essential anchor it’s been lacking for decades. This back-line looks as powerful as ever, and it will be intriguing to understand how the Red Devils could hold up against the blitz that the Wolves typically put on.
Anticipate the United defense to defy all progress. They’re just too solid at the moment and until squads work out how to strike that wall, teams could battle vs. United. Last week Chelsea, United used their defense to spur speedy counter-attacks going forward. Though their midfield isn’t the greatest at ball defending and winning, the likes of Paul Pogba, Andres Pereira, and Scott McTominay are excellent at creating and delivering the ball forwards.
Start looking for Man U to dominate the vast majority of this match. They are in elite form right now, and books are all slow to catch up to how great this squad may really be. United will be contested than they had been in Week 1, but ultimately the speed of Daniel James, Marcus Rashford, along with Anthony Martial should overwhelm the Wolves at the trunk. I would expect both teams score, together with Man U emerging by a 2-1 score-line.
