Head to head last season, United claimed the double over Wolves, but both occasions were tight, cagey affairs. Marcus Rashford scored an injury time winner on Wolves’ last trip to Old Trafford, while the Red Devils shaded things on the final day of the season at Molineux – a game in which Nelson Semedo scored his first goal in old gold. Only Rui Patricio and Willian Jose from that day’s starting line-up have since left, so Wolves will be looking for a more positive experience this time around.
What to Know
Wolverhampton has been on the wrong side of a one-way rivalry with Manchester United and is hoping to record their first win since April 2 of 2019. Wolverhampton will take on Man United at 12:30 p.m. ET on Monday at Old Trafford after a week off. Wolves have a defense that allows only 0.78 goals per game, so Man United’s offense will have their work cut out for them.
Last week, Wolverhampton and Chelsea ended up with a point apiece after a 0-0 draw.
Meanwhile, Man United was able to grind out a solid victory over Burnley on Thursday, winning 3-1. The Manchester United offense checked out after the first half but had enough goals banked to take the contest anyway.
After their draw, Wolverhampton will be looking to earn the full three points in this match.
