Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester United Match Predictions & Trends

Solskjaer may debut new signings before the international break

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want a return to winning ways before he loses the majority of his squad to international call-ups next week. Having demolished Leeds at Old Trafford there was a renewed sense of optimism about United which came crashing down last weekend when they drew with Southampton.

Solskjaer’s side won 63% of their away games last season, scoring in 74% of their away matches. 64% of Manchester Utd’s conceded goals were conceded at home including at least 1 goal in each of their last 5 home matches. United have been undefeated in their last 26 away matches and have scored in each of their last 13 home fixtures. A majority of The Red Devils’ wins have been obtained with a 1-goal margin (11 wins), while 10 of their wins had a margin of 2 goals or more.

Wolves have yet to score a Premier League goal this season but found their scoring touch in the league cup in midweek by beating Nottingham Forest 4-0. They will need to transfer that kind of confidence and style into their league campaign to get anything from this fixture as the star-studded United suad look to bounce back in emphatic fashion.
