On Monday night, Wolves will be introduced to the Premier League at the Theatre of Dreams as Manchester United hosts their counterparts from the Midlands at their stadium. The visitors are in disarray following Julen Lopetegui’s unavoidable exit. The Red Devils are preparing for a second season under the cautious eye of Erik ten Hag.
Manchester United vs Wolves
Manchester United began a new era last season under Erik Ten Haag after a terrible 2021/22 campaign in which they placed sixth. By defeating Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup, Manchester United won its first trophy under the new coach. They have not won a significant prize since defeating Ajax in the Europa League finals in 2017. They also placed third in the Premier League last year and advanced to the FA Cup final, where they fell to Manchester City 2:1.
Wolverhampton is entering this season after finishing 13th the previous one. Wolves will undoubtedly be happy with 13th place, though, given that they spent the majority of the season in the relegation zone. Their main objectives for this season are to ensure their survival and return to the middle of the table.
United sees something special developing under Erik ten Hag, but Wolves are going through turmoil at the least ideal time.
Even though the new season doesn’t start for another week, Julen Lopetegui has departed the team. Gary O’Neil, who defied all expectations to keep Bournemouth in the league last year, has been contacted. Some significant departures have left the Wolves team in shambles. Ruben Neves, their charismatic leader, joined Al-Hilal after being persuaded by Saudi Arabian cash.
Raul Jimenez, a constant forward, has also left behind a significant amount of experience.
Additionally, only Matheus Cunha’s permanent transfer following his loan period qualifies as any kind of statement signing, because Matt Doherty at right-back has returned home.
Manchester United excelled at home last season, winning 48 points there compared to just 27 away at Old Trafford. Given that they only made squad improvements over the Summer, we anticipate The Red Devils to continue with their dominant performances at home and open the season with a significant home victory. At home, they had the second-best record in the Premier League with 15 victories from 19 games.
Wolverhampton, like Manchester United, performed significantly better at home the previous season, earning 73% of their points there. With just 11 points in 19 games, they were among the league’s poorest teams when playing away from home.
Manchester United completely outplayed Wolverhampton in the previous head-to-head match, winning 2:0 at Old Trafford. To be fair, though, MU had plenty of room for scoring more goals whereas Wolves went the entire game without attempting a shot on target. Furthermore, Wolverhampton and Manchester United have split their previous six head-to-head matches.

Football Lover. All-round junkie of the beautiful game. Could be found watching football most of the time. If not he’s writing about them or making some punditry you don’t agree with. A certain bias for Arsenal and Santos FC.
