Wolverhampton Wanderers +180 / Manchester United +150 / Draw +225
In the English Premier League, Manchester United will travel away from home where they will play against Wolves at Molineux Stadium.
Manchester United were very impressive in the opening round as they defeated Chelsea 4-0 at home. The win has brought great optimism to the club and the Manchester United players look to be confident. During the win, Manchester United only had 46% of the possession but the team was very efficient with the ball as they created 11 shots. Marcus Rashford was in outstanding form as the English striker scored twice. Anthony Martial and Daniel James were also very impressive as they both scored for Manchester United. Paul Pogba showed great creativity as he was vital in creating the scoring chances. Things are looking good for Manchester United and they will be optimistic as they enter this match.
On the other side of the coin, Wolves played against Leicester City in the opening round in a match that ended in a 0-0 draw. Wolves were disallowed a goal and will feel unlucky but the team didn’t play well. Wolves only managed to maintain 30% of the possession and the passing was poor as they had a pass accuracy rate of less than 70%. In the entire match, Wolves completed only 291 passes. There are huge expectations of Wolves following their success last season but the team had a poor start and that will make this a very tough match.
Manchester United and Wolves played each other 3 times last season. Wolves won on 2 occasions while the other match ended as a draw.
Despite recent head-to-head results, I am going to pick Manchester United to win this match. Manchester United look in outstanding form following their win against Chelsea and the team seems to be playing well as a unit. Wolves looked poor in their previous match and I see them struggling against an elite opponent in Manchester United. I see Manchester United winning this match and getting another 3 points on the board.
