Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Following a 4-2 win over Newport County in the FA Cup round 4, Manchester United will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Wolverhampton in the Premier League round 22. The Red Devils are not having a season to remember, but Thursday’s clash could be the turning point for Erik ten Hag’s troops. Both Marcus Rashford and Aaron Wan-Bissaka should be fit for the match, while Sofyane Amrabat is still on international duty. The likes of Tyrell Malacia, Mason Mount, Victor Lindelof, and Anthony Martial remain in the treatment room.
The Wolves, on the other hand, are still without Hee-Chan Hwang, Boubacar Traore, Rayan Ait Nouri, and Justin Hubner (all on international duty) and given Joao Gomes’ suspension, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the midweek clash. You should know that Man Utd are eyeing their fourth consecutive win over Wolverhampton in the national championship.
