Week two of the Premier League season Ends up on Monday afternoon as unbeaten Manchester United travels to Wolverhampton, to do battle with the Wolves.
Wolverhampton were undoubtedly one of the jolt outfits from last year. Scoring frequently, defending well, and brilliant tactics from supervisor Nuno Espirto Santo. Last week that they drew 0-0 in Leicester City, but deserved a far better fate. In terms of anticipated goals, the Wolves outplayed their opponents also had many chances throughout. That is a team that could score and ought to have the ability to detect the back of the internet as they return home on Monday. Last year, the Wolves beat Manchester United in both fixtures, although the Red Devils look to be substantially improved — the Wolves have their sights firmly set on a top-six place.
For Manchester United, what a grand start it was. If any team desired a 4-0 victory, it was surely them. It allowed the team to breathe and gave a pillow to trainer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as well. The Red Devils are a better side in 2019, deeper front and strong at the back. When there are still openings within the midfield, they’ve finally injected more childhood to the group and that should assist with their speed moving ahead.
This is supposed to be a game. Both sides have loads of attacking flair and creativity up front. Read on below the odds for a comprehensive preview, strategic breakdown, along with a winning bet to finish the week off on a top note. Enjoy Wolves vs. Man U!
Manchester United (+135)
Over 2.5 (+120)
Under 2.5 (-140)
This is supposed to be an absolute cracker of match. Both teams are expected to announce quite attack-minded lineups when those get posted about one hour before kickoff, and it should make for an exciting game.
Manchester United tore apart Chelsea last week, because their ball motion and rate was deadly. Nevertheless, going in the Molineux makes for a difficult atmosphere, although the natives have their own issues at the back — the strain they place on other groups’ back-lines must stress the Red Devils.
For United’s defense — it has immediately become a good group once more. Aaron Wan-Bissaka is long, rangy, and immensely talented at left back, while the central pairing of Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire provides the squad the essential anchor it’s been lacking for decades. That back-line looks as powerful as ever, and it will be interesting to determine how the Red Devils could hold up from the blitz that the Wolves typically wear.
Expect the United shield to defy any and all advances. They are just too strong at the moment and before squads work out the way to attack that wall, teams could struggle vs. United. Last week vs. Chelsea, United used their defense to spur rapid counter-attacks going forward. Though their midfield isn’t the greatest at ball defending and winning, the likes of Paul Pogba, Andres Pereira, along with Scott McTominay are excellent at producing and delivering the ball forward.
Search for Man U to control the majority of this game. They’re in elite shape at the moment, and books tend to be very slow to catch up to how great that this squad could really be. United is going to be challenged more than they were at Week 1, but ultimately the speed of Daniel James, Marcus Rashford, and Anthony Martial ought to overwhelm the Wolves at the back. I’d expect both teams score, with all Man U emerging with a 2-1 score-line.
