As Manchester United prepares to host Wolverhampton Wanderers in this match week 21 fixture, only two places separate them on the EPL table. Man United sits in 7th while Wolves sits in 9th.
With Man United having 31 points and 4th-placed Arsenal having 35 points, a win will take Man United within a point of the Champions League places.
However, Wolves will hope to build on a fine result against Chelsea in their last outing where they got a point.
We are poised for a very exciting match. Who will take home the points?
Who is the favourite to win Man United vs Wolves?
According to bookmakers, Man United is the favourite to win this one.
It’s not hard to see why.
Man United has been successful over Wolves in recent times – the Manchester club has won the last three meetings between the two sides.
However, Wolves are no pushovers. They have been a tough nut to crack lately.
Chelsea found this out in their last 0-0 encounter. Wolves have lost only two (2) games in their last 7 games, and those were against Liverpool (a late injury-time goal) and Man City (a penalty goal).
So, even though Man United is favourite to win, Wolves may just pull a surprise. So, a safe bet is: Man United to Win or Draw.
Expect a low scoring affair
In the last 6 meetings between the two sides, there have been two (2) scoreless draws, and three (3) 1-0 wins. This means that there has not been more than one goal in 5 of the last 6 games between Man United and Wolves.
Don’t expect this game to be any different.
Wolves have struggled in front of goal this season. In their last eight (8) games, the wanderers have been scoreless in six (6) and managed only one (1) goal in each of the other two games.
Man United themselves have not found their best goal-scoring form under new interim boss Ralf Rangnick. In four (4) of the five (5) games that the German has presided over, the Red Devils have not scored more than one goal. However, they found their scoring form in their last game as they netted 3 past Burnley at Old Trafford.
Man United vs Wolves prediction: Man United to win or draw in a low scoring affair.
