Manchester United and the Wolves face off on Tuesday in an English Premier League showdown at Old Trafford.
Manchester United comes into this game sitting in 4th place in the standings with 27 points and this is a game they need to take away three points in. Manchester United’s last game was against Leicester City and it looked like they were going to pick up three points but a late own goal by Axel Tuanzaebe allowed Leicester City to tie the game and they only picked up one point. Those two points late in the season could end up proving to be very costly. Two Sundays ago, Manchester United put up six goals and they are going to need the offense to be good again in this game. This is a good defensive team they are facing and having possession and putting good shots on goals are going to be important.
On the other side of this matchup is the Wolves who have picked up 21 points which puts them in 11th place in the standings. Wolverhampton has to feel really good heading into this game. In the last game against Tottenham they gave up a goal in the 1st minute, but after that the defense was really good. Romain Saiss was the difference for the Wolves putting a goal in the back of the net in the 86th minute in that last game against Tottenham, the Wolves actually had 55 percent of the possession and the defense was strong except in the first 1st minute. In this game if the Wolves want to win the offense is going to need to lock down.
I think the Wolves defense is going to lock down and that will be the difference in this game. It might not be enough to come away with a victory, but it will be enough to keep this game under the total. Back the under to cash.
