There’s not much to separate these two sides with just a three-point gap between them in the table, while a stalemate at Molineux a fortnight ago has meant that they must lock horns once more in the middle of their busy schedules for an FA Cup third round replay.
Fortunately for Man Utd, they get the home advantage to boost their prospects of advancing to the fourth round for the sixth straight time, including a runners-up spot in 2017/18 and winning it under Louis van Gaal in 2015/16.
Manchester United And Wolves To Draw
Wolves were semi-finalists last year having knocked out their hosts for this one in the quarters back in March, but that was the first time they’d reached that stage since 1997/98, whilst their recent form suggests they may struggle this Wednesday.
Indeed, the busy schedule seems to have got the better of them with four winless outings across all competitions now since their final game of 2019, although both the last two finished in stalemates.
When facing the ‘Big Six’ and this seasons’ Leicester side, they’ve now gone W2-D4-L3 from their nine matches across all tournaments this term. In fact, they’ve now drawn half their six trips to such sides since March last year and we think it’ll be another tough encounter for them.
The Red Devils cruised past Norwich in their most recent outing, winning 4-0, with strikes from Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood making the difference.
That now means that Rashford is having by far his best ever season in a United shirt, but with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer likely to be conscious of their Premier League fixture with Liverpool at the weekend he may be rested.
The Norwegian’s team has now won 10 of their 17 encounters at Old Trafford this season, though they’ve drawn half of their last 11 domestic fixtures here since late September and so we wouldn’t be surprised if it did have to go to extra time.
1-1 Correct Score
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are yet to lose to Man Utd since their promotion, drawing three of five meetings as both victories came at Molineux, whilst two thirds of those draws finished 1-1.
With that in mind, as well as the hosts likely to rotate their squad a little with their all-important fixture against the Reds coming up, the stalemate holds considerable value.
Not to mention, only Arsenal have drawn as many times as the visitors in the league this year (10) as eight of those finished one strike apiece, which looks worth having a punt on too.
