Manchester United fancied to keep rolling against Wolves

Manchester United host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Saturday aiming to continue their recent upturn in form.

United lost two of their first three league matches this season, but successive away victories over Burnley and Watford moved them up to 8th in the table.

The Red Devils head into the game on the back of an impressive 3-0 victory at Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Paul Pogba (2) and Anthony Martial got the goals for United on what was ultimately a comfortable evening for Jose Mourinho’s side.

The United boss made five changes from the team that beat Watford last Saturday, with Diogo Dalot, Luke Shaw, Fred, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial coming into the starting XI.

Of that quintet, only Fred is likely to retain his place with Nemanja Matic suspended for this weekend’s game.

Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard, Marouane Fellaini, Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia are all expected to return to the team.

United are priced at 10/17 to beat Wolves and that price could tempt many punters to use this 12bet free bet offer via OLBG.com and back Mourinho’s side to pick up three points on Saturday.

Wolves, who are on offer at 5/1, have made a solid start to the season following their promotion from the Championship, losing just one of their opening five games.

Victories over West Ham United and Burnley in their last two matches have taken them to 9th in the standings, just a point behind United.

However, they were wasteful in front of goal against the Clarets, scoring just once from 30 attempts and they will need to be more clinical if they are to take anything from Old Trafford.

United’s record over the past few years against Wolves is excellent, with the North West club suffering just two defeats in their last 16 meetings in all competitions.

The two sides last met during the 2011/12 season, with United winning 4-1 at home and 5-0 at Molineux.

Wednesday’s victory in Switzerland will undoubtedly give United a huge confidence boost for this weekend.

Pogba, in particular, was impressive and he has started to show the form he is capable of over the last few games.

Further forward, Romelu Lukaku and Sanchez are developing a better understanding and both will fancy their chances of getting on the scoresheet against Wolves.

Nuno’s side have scored just five goals in the league this season and they could find things difficult against a much-improved United team.

The Red Devils are priced at 31/20 to win to nil this weekend and that looks a solid wager.
