Manchester United can close the gap on the top four to just a single point with victory against Wolves on Monday evening but don’t expect a feast of goals at Old Trafford.
United are unbeaten in eight games in all competitions but they have had a fairly kind schedule and there is clearly still a lot of work for Ralf Rangnick to do if he is to guide the Reds into that fourth spot in the Premier League given the strength of competition from the likes of Arsenal and Spurs.
United are 4/7 with Grosvenor Sport to make it four successive home wins on the bounce in the league but Wolves are a tough nut to crack and goals have been in short supply between these sides in recent years.
Five of the last six meetings between United and Wolves have yielded no more than one goal and Wolves have managed just a single strike in those six matches.
Scoring goals is the big problem for Wolves this term. Bruno Lage’s side has managed just two goals in their last eight Premier League matches but they have kept five clean sheets in the last seven and they made life very difficult for Manchester City and Liverpool earlier this month.
Man United vs Wolves Prediction
United showed more attacking spark against Burnley but they are not going to find it easy to break down this belligerent Wolves rearguard and don’t be surprised if this turns into a frustrating evening for the hosts.
Only one of the last seven meetings between these sides has gone over 2.5 goals and Wolves are really struggling in front of goal so this is unlikely to be a goals bonanza.
.United to win 1-0 is quite an appealing play at 5/1 but the safest wager, for all that it’s not particularly adventurous, looks to be under 2.5 goals at 10/13.
