Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Following a routine 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest, Manchester United will look to climb to the Champions League places when they face Wolverhampton on Matchday 18. The Red Devils are after their third consecutive league win, but beating the Wolves at Molineux Stadium is easier said than done. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Marcus Rashford, who impressed in the last league match, while pacey winger Sancho remains in the treatment room.
Both Dalot and Martinez are rated doubtful for Saturday’s clash. Julen Lopetegui’s troops, on the other hand, defeated Everton on Boxing Day thanks to Ait Nouri’s late goal to regain a much-needed confidence. Wolverhampton, though, are on a three-game losing run at home, which is probably the main reason why away win should be considered. All Chiquinho, Kalajdzic, and Neto remain on the sidelines with injuries, but both Traore and Jonny should be fit for the match.
Highlighted Player (Adama Traore):
After starting his youth career at Hospitalet, Adama Traore moved to Barcelona football academy La Masia in 2004. The pacey winger made a great progress during his spell with the Catalan giants and it has to be noted that he scored eight goals in 63 appearances for Barca B.
Adama Traore made his debut for the first team against Granada (4-0) on November 23, 2013, replacing Brazilian superstar Neymar in the 83rd minute of the match. In the summer of 2015, he signed for Aston Villa for a fee of £7 million, but he made no more than 11 appearances in the Premier League for the Vilans. At the end of the 2015/2016 season he moved to fellow English club Middlesbrough and he made his debut for the Boro in a 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace on September 10, 2016.
Due to his dual citizenship, Adama Traore is eligible to represent Spain and Mali at senior level, but it has to be noted that he played for youth categories of La Roja.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
