Wolves v Man Utd Betting Tips & Predictions

Both teams were victorious on their respective returns to Premier League action. 

Manchester United picked up where they left off with Marcus Rashford starring, while Julen Lopetegui’s Wolves reign got off to the dream start with a last-gasp win against Everton at Goodison Park.

There are 16 points between these sides in the Premier League table, and injuries are a major factor for both teams. The hosts are without Chiquinho, Pedro Neto and Sasa Kalajdzic. Daniel Podence, Jonny and Boubacar Traore are all doubts. 

Erik ten Hag, meanwhile, is waiting on the availability of several players, including Diogo Dalot and Lisandro Martinez. 

Total Goals: Over 2.5

Evens (Unibet)

Wolves have scored only five times in eight home matches. 

Manchester United, however, have seen over 2.5 goals in four of their last five on the road, and have leaked 16 goals in eight league matches away from Old Trafford.

Lopetegui appeared to have Wolves playing a slightly more open style of football away to Everton. 

There is a sense this team will be slightly more adventurous, and they are due for a few more goals after underachieving their expected marks in the first part of the campaign.

Total Cards: Over 4.5

27/20 (Sporting Index)

In Lopetegui’s first match in charge, Wolves were shown six cards. 

United were booked three times during a routine home win against Forest, and have been given the most cards of any Premier League team.

Both rank in the top five for most fouls per match. This should be a physical 90 minutes at Molineux with referee Robert Jones in for a busy afternoon.

Anytime Goalscorer: Marcus Rashford

3/1 (Bet365)

Superb at the World Cup and with goals in both matches since the season resumed, Marcus Rashford is playing the best football of his career. 

He might nominally be on the wing with Anthony Martial operating through the middle, but Rashford still gets into a lot of goal-scoring positions.
