The Wolves will travel to Manchester to take on Manchester United for its first game of 2022, as the Premier League 2021-22 season continues.
Manchester United looks like a completely new unit since Ralf Rangnick has been appointed as the head coach, but is currently in 6th place. It is tied at points with the fifth-placed West Ham but has played one game fewer, and a win at home will take them closer to the top 4. After a forgettable start to the season, Manchester United seems to have returned to its winning ways and has won 4 out of its last 5 games.
A 3-1 win against Burnley in the previous match will have put Manchester United in a good frame of mind coming into this match although that result should not be anything to boast about for a side with the resources that Manchester United has!
Wolves, who are playing their 4th consecutive Premier League, are currently in 8th place with 25 points. The team will be looking to collect at least 1 point from the game to move closer to 7th placed Tottenham, which is 5 points ahead.
Match prediction and betting tips for Manchester United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester, on the 3rd of January 2022.
Ralf Rangnick has some good news before the start of this game, as Bruno Fernandes is back after serving his suspension against Burnley. Victor Lindelof has recovered from COVID, and so has Raphael Varane from his injury.
Bruno Lage however is not so lucky, as it is still not sure how many players will be available for selection, after a COVID outbreak within the team, as well as a number of injuries. Pedro Neto, Hwang Hee-Chan, Willy Bolly, Rayan Ait-Nouri, and Yerson Mosquera are nursing their injuries and will be unavailable to play.
While the points table may tell a different story, the Wolves have played pretty consistently so far this season, especially with their defense. In fact, the team has kept a clean sheet in 7 out of their 18 games.
However, the striking power of Manchester United, especially Cristiano Ronaldo may well prove to be a bit too much for them. Nevertheless, we expect a closely fought encounter, and a low-scoring game.
Bet on Manchester United to win.
Manchester United and Wolverhampton almost always tend to play low-scoring games. There have been fewer than 2.5 goals scored in four out of their previous five matches. In fact, a total of five goals have been scored in those five matches! We have also seen the Wolves be quite stout with their defense this season and Manchester United has been anything but consistent in attack. Bet the 'Under' here.
