Match Summary

1 Look out for:

A slow start. Both sides have scored only a combined 13 league goals this season, but remarkably only two of them were netted prior to the 29th minute.

No goal before the 29-minute mark is 5/6 with Bet365 and one of the best Premier League predictions of the weekend.

3 It's a long shot, but…

United to win 5-0 is 47/1 with MansionBet. That was the result when the two sides last met in the Premier League back in 2012 and although that result was at Molineux, United are capable of anything – it’s just no-one knows which version will turn up.

One to Watch: Romelu Lukaku

With Marcus Rashford suspended, Romelu Lukaku’s role against Wolves will become even more vital. The Belgian has netted four times in the league this season and will pose the biggest attacking threat on the field. With few other viable attacking options for the Red Devils, Lukaku will undoubtedly play the 90 minutes, which is why the No 9 scoring at any time in the game at 6/5 with BetBright is one of the smartest football betting tips for the weekend.

Jose Mourinho has options ahead of the visit of Wolverhampton Wanderers, with defender Luke Shaw likely to have played a part against Young Boys in the Champions League midweek.

However, midfielder Ander Herrera still has no return date after suffering an ankle injury and Marcus Rashford is in the midst of a three-match ban.

Nuno Espirito Santo has only one fitness doubt – forward Ivan Cavaleiro’s back injury means he is could well miss the trip to Old Trafford.

However, he is Wolves’ only likely absentee as Nuno looks set to stick with the side who beat Burnley.

Manchester United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Luke Shaw still be cheering after the final whistle?

Manchester United return to Old Trafford for the first time since their 3-0 pummelling by Tottenham Hotspur. However, successive league wins have put Jose Mourinho in a far better mood as the in-form and dangerous Wolverhampton Wanderers come to town. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have taken to life back in the Premier League like ducks to water, although they should with one of the heavier bank balances in the division, and our Premier League preview maintains they should be given respect. However, how much they should be respected is a different matter and our football predictions for this game make for an encounter full of intensity and touchline antics.

United are 4/7 to win and that is one of the best prices you are ever likely to see for a side of their ilk on home soil against a newly-promoted side. United have also won eight of the last nine meetings between the two, making a home victory today’s football prediction.

Wolves are 5/1 to win and, as an outside bet, are definitely worth a punt. United have shown that they can go off the boil and are more than beatable when they are. The visitors, meanwhile, have already proven their credentials and an away victory at 5/1 could be one of the best football betting tips for value for this match.  

The draw is 11/4 and is a result that Wolves will likely be out to achieve.  However, United are yet to draw this season and have the bit between their teeth, making the draw one of the football score predictions to avoid in this one.

Both teams to score is 19/20 and one of the smarter football predictions in what should be an open game. Wolves have only failed to score once this season, whereas it is inconceivable to think United will fail to score at home again.

Over 2.5 goals is 17/20 and a no-brainer. In the last four Premier League games between the two, the net has 16 sixteen times – at an average of four goals per game.

Predicted Score: Manchester United 2 - 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers
