Wolverhampton Wanderers – Manchester United
We can say Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United didn’t have a lot of luck during the 3rd round draw of the FA Cup, because now they will have to face each other in such an early phase of the competition. In our soccer matches tomorrow we will examine the FA Cup third round game between Wolves and Manchester United on Saturday.
This is basically a repeat of the FA Cup game between these two teams from the previous season. The only difference is that in March Wolves and United faced each other at the Molineux in a game from the 1/4-finals of the competition. It was a good day for Wolverhampton, because Nuno Santo’s boys won the game with 2-1 and qualified for the 1/2-finals at Wembley. It was Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota who scored the two goals in Sergio Romero’s net back then.
Nothing is much different now. Nuno Santo and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are still managing the two teams, but now United will be hungry for revenge. During the holidays the Red Devils enjoyed two consecutive wins over Newcastle United and Burnley, but on Wednesday they got beaten by Arsenal at the Emirates.
Paul Pogba is out of the team again with an injury, while Marcos Rojo, Axel Tuanzebe, Eric Bailly and Scott McTominay are injured as well. Against Arsenal Solskjaer started the wonderkid Mason Greenwood from the bench, but it won’t be surprising if the manager put him in the starting lineup on Saturday.
Wolverhampton Wanderers on the other hand can’t use Morgan Gibbs-White and Willy Boly, who are injured, too. In their last game Wolves also lost in the Premier League, being beaten by Watford away from home.
In our soccer matches tomorrow we expect a really exciting FA Cup game between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United. Wolves have the home advantage at the Molineux, but United will be hungry for revenge.
