Manchester United will be looking to build on their impressive win over Chelsea when they take on Wolves at Molineux this evening.

United rode their luck in the first half last weekend but blew Chelsea away after the break with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial among the goalscorers as the Red Devils eased to a 4-0 win at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s new-look side will now head to Molineux looking for victory to join Liverpool and Arsenal in being the only clubs to win each of their two opening Premier League games of the new campaign.

However, it certainly won’t be an easy game for Man Utd against a tough Wolves side who’ve built an excellent squad since being promoted from the Championship in 2018 so Solskjaer won’t be taking anything for granted this evening.

Team news

United have no fresh injury concerns to worry about but they’ll continue to be without Eric Bailly as the Ivory Coast international remains on the sidelines with a long-term knee injury that he sustained in pre-season.

Alexis Sanchez has been building up his fitness in training but he might not be brought back into the fold just yet amid speculation linking him with a move to Italy this summer.

Daniel James is pushing to make his full debut after coming off the bench to score the fourth goal against Chelsea last weekend while Paul Pogba should keep his place in midfield alongside Scott McTominay.

Wolves are set to make plenty of changes to the side that beat FC Pyunik in the Europa League last Thursday night with the likes of Raul Jimenez, Diogo Jota, Rui Patricio, Ryan Bennett, Ruben Neves, Jonny and Matt Doherty set to return.

Predicted score

Wolves 1-1 Man Utd: United will be full of confidence after beating Chelsea last time out while Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire have made an immediate impact in defence so Solskjaer will be quietly confident heading into tonight’s game. However, Wolves are a solid side who haven’t lost in their last eight league games at Molineux and United are winless in their last four away game [D1 L3]. Wolves also won both games against United last season so this will be an interesting encounter. I’m going to sit on the fence and predict a hard fought 1-1 draw!
