Wolves vs Manchester United predictions and betting tips for the Premier League fixture on Tuesday 2nd April. Both these sides have their own European aspirations this season that they will be looking to strengthen. How will Manchester United’s now permanent manager cope in his second game?
Wolves will have one eye on this weekend’s FA Cup final.
Man United are still chasing a top four finish and can leapfrog Spurs if they avoid defeat tonight.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will look to build on Saturday’s 2-1 home win over Watford with three points in a tough match tonight.
It was only just two weeks ago that this exact fixture was played in the quarter final of the FA Cup. A game in which Wolves won 2-1. However, this game will have a completely different feel and atmosphere to it, as it is expected that Wolves will be putting out a considerably weaker starting XI as they have their minds on Sunday’s FA Cup semi final against Watford.
Wolves come into this game off the back of a 2-0 loss to strugglers Burnley, whereas Manchester United won their game against Watford on the weekend. After being named the full time Manchester United manager last week, Ole Gunnar Solskjær will be looking to make it two wins from two and strengthen the Red Devils challenge for a top four finish and our first prediction is for Man United to beat Wolves. You’ll get a huge 10/1 for them to do so when you use this 888Sport sign-up offer.
Wolves to win – 16/5
Draw – 13/5
Man United to win – 19/20
Ole Gunnar Solskjær has completely changed the feel around the club since he took over as caretaker manager in December. Possibly the most impressive difference he has made is how United now go forward. He has completely changed around the fortunes of Romelu Lukaku and has turned Marcus Rashford into a free scoring striker.
Something that previous manager Jose Mourinho struggled to do. With midfield players also adding goals to their game, the 20 times champions have a wonderful range of goal scoring options.
For Wolves, Raul Jimenez has been a real star this season. The on loan Benfica striker has scored 12 goals this season and Wolves must be seriously considering the option to buy that they have on the loan deal.
My prediction for this game is Marcus Rashford to score anytime. The in form Englishman scored at Molineux in the FA Cup last month, and after netting at the weekend he is a good bet. You can get him at 15/8 with Ladbrokes to find the net for our anytime goalscorer tip.
This will be a very close game. Wolves have a great record against the top six this season and will be looking to continue this. However, with the huge semi final on Sunday, I can’t see them hitting top gear in this one.
Making the top four is very much the priority for United this season and they will be putting 100% effort into every game till the end of the season.
Especially with Spurs slipping up on the weekend, they will see this as a great chance to capitalise. I am predicting a 2-1 win for Manchester United which you can get at 17/2 with bet365 and that is the last of today’s betting tips.
