The Premier League returns once again this weekend with another full set of intriguing top flight fixtures for fans to enjoy. We’re still in the early stages of the campaign which means we’ve still got a whole lot to learn about the 20 teams competing this season, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t still guaranteed fireworks in some chosen games over the next few days – with one such example being Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Manchester United at Molineux.

Wolves

Under the guidance of Bruno Lage it definitely feels as if Wolves have rediscovered the “exciting” edge that once made them so feared under Nuno Espirito Santo – before he turned into a more defensive-minded manager. Still, while there’s a lot of intrigue in the air in the Black Country about what this team could achieve, they need to start working on putting the ball in the back of the net – because that’s what their pressure in front of goal deserves.

Team News

Jonny, Boly, Neto, Mosquera and Bueno are all out through injury here with the hope being that Traore will be able to start up top despite rumours surrounding his future.

Manchester United

Manchester United are gearing up for one of the biggest transfers in recent memory now that it’s been confirmed Cristiano Ronaldo will be returning to Old Trafford after 12 years away. Alas, the signing of one man isn’t going to be enough to completely revitalise this team and the majority of folks are well aware of that – because they need to ensure they have the kind of team cohesion necessary to transform the club back into title contenders.

Team News

Ronaldo isn’t expected to be available in time for this one and will instead have to wait until after the international break to debut. Jones and Henderson are both out with the latter struggling with long COVID, Cavani is a doubt and the following players have been ruled out through injury: Telles, Rashford and McTominay.

Factors to Consider

  • In their last meeting on the final day, Man United beat Wolves 2-1.
  • Wolves have lost both of their Premier League games this season.
  • Man United have won one and drawn one of their Premier League games this season.
  • Wolves have scored zero goals and conceded two in the Premier League.
  • Man United have scored six goals and conceded two in the Premier League.

Conclusion

Despite all of the bells and whistles surrounding Manchester United in the last few days we still don’t expect them to come and tear through Wolves on Sunday. The hosts have been one of the most exciting teams to watch so far this season despite not being able to hit the back of the net, whereas United showed some frailties against Southampton in their last outing. We’re backing a 1-1 draw here in what should be one of the more exciting games of the weekend.
