Wolverhampton Wanderers

Recent form in all competition (last five matches): LWDWL

Wolves haven’t been having the best of results recently, winning two games, drawing one and losing two on their last five. Nuno Esperinto Santo’s side latest league match was a disappointing 2-0 defeat against Burnley.

Playing at home on Tuesday, Wolves will not be shy in gunning for all three points. Already beat the same opponent in their FA Cup meeting, the home team will be confident with their shot.

Manchester United

Recent form in all competition (last five matches) :WWLLW

Man United themselves haven’t been too convincing recently with their three wins and two loses in their last five. Fortunately, Solksjaer’s team last game ended in a 2-1 home win over Watford.

That victory this past midweek could provide that extra confidence for Man U on Tuesday. Knowing the difficult battle for top four seat, Red Devils must push for victory.

Team News

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves doesn’t have any injury concern to trouble them for this Tuesday clash. Nuno can simply pick his best possible squad to help them get maximum results at home.

The home team will continue to rely on their Portuguese duo of Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves in midfield. Raul Jimenez along with Diego Jota should be leading their attack against United.

Manchester United

Solksjaer is still going to play without Matteo Darmian, Alexis Sanchez and Antonio Valencia this Tuesday. Anthony Martial condition is slightly in doubt, but he should at least make the bench.

Romelu Lukaku could get the nod up front alongside Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard. Viktor Lindelof should also return at the back after being left out on the weekend.

Head to Head Records:

The last five meetings between both teams have been quite even as both sides won twice each and drew one.

Their latest match at Wolverhampton happened on March 17,2019 in their FA Cup clash, which was won by the home side 2-1.

Match Prediction

Playing away from home, Man United will still try their best to push for victory. The Red Devils can’t really afford to drop points as that race for top four seat is super tight.

However, taking down Wolves at home will be tough as Nuno’s team are not easy to beat at Molineux Stadium. This Tuesday clash should be an exciting clash with both sides looking to push for victory.

Final Score: 1-1
