Wolverhampton Wanderers hosts Manchester United
Wolverhampton Wanderers hosts Manchester United at the Molineux in a match from the last 38th round of the Premier League. Stay with us and our best soccer predictions for today regarding this clash. It’s going to be an exciting one!
Wolverhampton will try to keep their 12th place in the standings, although it does not make much of a difference in this case of course. Wolves are one point ahead of the 13th Crystal Palace and two points ahead of the 14th Southampton. This was certainly not the most successful season for Nuno Santo’s team as Wolverhampton seriously underperformed and played below their usual levels.
12 wins, 9 draws and 16 losses – this is how Wolves performed this season. They started the 2020/21 campaign with a thought about reaching Europe again, but something went seriously wrong during the year. Diogo Jota’s departure to Liverpool didn’t help, too, as it lowered the team’s potential in attack.
In their last two matches in the league Wolves suffered two consecutive defeats against Tottenham Hotspur and Everton. Both games were away from home and in both of them Wolverhampton didn’t score a goal. At this points it’s not clear if the manager Nuno Santo is going to continue with his work at the Molineux or not. It won’t be surprising if the board starts looking for another head coach.
Manchester United will finish second in the Premier League for this season. The Red Devils managed to win 71 points in their matches so far, but at the end it was far from enough to deal with Manchester City’s domination. United are currently 12 points behind Pep Guardiola’s team which already celebrated the title.
Manchester United are without a win in their last three matches and they won just a point for this period of time. It happened in the previous round when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys faced Fulham at home and the game ended with a 1-1 draw. Edinson Cavani scored the only goal in the game after a slick assist from Bruno Fernandes and a beautiful lob over Alphonse Areola.
We should expect to see Manchester United putting their “B” team on the pitch against Wolves. Just three days later the Red Devils will have an European final as they will face Villarreal for the Europa League trophy. This is the absolute priority for United at the moment, so you can be sure Solskjaer won’t risk anyone of his key players in this game.
That’s our best soccer predictions for today for the Premier League clash between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United at the Molineux. Taking into account that United will keep their key players for the Europa League final we should label Wolves favourites here. For Nuno Santo’s team this is an opportunity to end a problematic season in style. At the same time Manchester United’s manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could give a chance to most of his backup players alongside some talented guys from the Academy. Let’s see what’s going to happen between these two teams on Sunday.
