Premier League / Wolverhampton vs Manchester United – The last match of the second round puts together teams that play in the Europa League this season.

Last season Wolverhampton won Manchester United at home by 2-1, while match played at Old Trafford ended as 1-1 draw.
Game Wolverhampton vs Manchester United begins 19.08.2019 at 21:00 CET
Wolverhampton had a good start of the new season and it passed two obstacles in the Europa League without any problems. That was quite expected as its rivals were much weaker teams and the Wolves scored 14 goals in four matches with Crusaders and Pyunik, and received just one. Ahead of them is the play-off with Torino and that will be far more difficult challenge on their way to the group phase, which they have never played before. Regarding the Premier League at its start they played a match that was totally different than those in the Europa League.
That was not surprising given they faced Leicester away and that is a strong opponent. The final result was 0-0 and the Wolves can be satisfied with one won point, given that was untypical match for Wolverhampton. Regarding the team, manager Nuno Santo obviously has full confidence in tried and tested players, or in other words players who did well last season. Wolverhampton practically lost no one and newcomers got chance to play only in European matches, at least for the time being. The biggest name among them is Crotone and he also waits for his chance sitting on the bench.
Probable lineups Wolverhampton: Patricio – Bennett, Coady, Boly – Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny – R. Jimenez, Jota
A promising start of the season for Manchester United where preparatory matches were good indicators since they did well. Expectations were big as they underperformed in the previous season with winning mere sixth place and without a notable result in the FA Cup, League Cup and the Champions League. They didn’t buy much and brought players on whom they would base their optimism, and instead they hope that the existing team can do better. Ole Gunner Solsjkaer leads the team from the beginning of season and he got two reinforcements for defence; right back Wan-Bissaka and stopper Maguire, and there is also young forward James.
They sold Lukaku and that was the most painful loss but it was quickly forgotten after they outclassed Chelsea 4-0 at home in the first round. Wan-Bissaka and Maguire were starters and Pogba was ready, while McTominay got advantage over Matic. It should be said that the result was far better than their game, while their opponent missed several great opportunities when the result read 1-0. Solskjaer will certainly not change anything in the team that won by sound goal difference, while out of action is stopper Bailly, just as A. Sanchez.
Probable lineups Manchester United: de Gea – Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, L. Shaw – Pogba, McTominay, Pereira – Lingard, Rashford – Martial
Betting Pick: Wolverhampton vs Manchester United
Wolverhampton team is practically the same like last year when they won Manchester United two times at home. The guests hope to fare much better this season but we expect to have problems in this away match and our forecast is that both teams will score.
Pick: Both teams to score
