Man Utd v Wolverhampton Betting Tips & Predictions
Manchester United failed to register a shot on target at Molineux in the original FA Cup tie, although we think the Red Devils look like a decent bet for this replay at Old Trafford and that’s for a number of reasons.
Firstly, the Red Devils made a hash of their EFL Cup semi-final first leg match against Manchester City, with a 3-1 reverse meaning that they are virtually certain to miss out on the final and the FA Cup suddenly becomes more important.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows the importance of landing silverware during his first full season at Manchester United and perhaps we will see plenty of first-teamers take to the field, including Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
Secondly, we’re not convinced that Wolverhampton Wanderers are particularly bothered about the FA Cup and that was reflected by the team selection for the first match where we saw players like Bernard Ashley-Seal, Pedro Neto and Max Kilman feature.
Ultimately, the Midlands side are chasing the same goal as United in their quest for a Premier League top four spot and they will happily sacrifice the tie to ensure that they rack up points against Newcastle and Southampton either side of this game.
Naturally, a lot depends on team selection and we would advise you to check back on the predicted lineups and confirmed lineups before going ahead and betting, although United have more depth when it comes to their squad and a bet on the home side is advised.
Solskjaer knows that his position could be under threat if they go out of both domestic cup competitions in the space of a few days and it appears as though United’s need is greater.
