Wolves vs Man Utd: Team News, Likely Line-ups & Predicted Score
New league leaders Manchester United travel to Molineux to face struggling Wolves on Sunday. Here’s team news, likely line-ups and predicted score for the game
New league leaders Manchester United travel to Molineux to face struggling Wolves on Sunday looking to extend their lead over rivals Man City.
City aren’t in action this weekend so Sir Alex Ferguson will be keen to take advantage and open up a four-point gap by securing all three points against Wolves.
Terry Connor’s side are in deep trouble having only collected eight points in their last 14 games, but they will be buoyed by the fact they managed to beat Man Utd at home last February, so know it can be done.
However, they face a United side that has collected 22 points from a possible 24 in the league and will be like a wounded animal following their Europa League defeat on Thursday.
Wolves have no fresh injury concerns ahead of the game. Karl Henry is the only player on the sidelines and the midfielder is set to return from a hamstring injury next week.
Manager Terry Connor is likely to recall skipper Roger Johnson after his side have shipped 9 goals in their last 3 games without the centre back, who was dropped after breaking club disciplinary rules.
Sir Alex Ferguson could recall winger Antonio Valencia, who travelled with the squad for their defeat to Bilbao on Thursday. Paul Scholes is likely to come back into midfield while United will be hoping Wayne Rooney recovers from a slight knock picked up in the final minutes of Thursdays defeat.
Defender Phil Jones is struggling to shake off the flu and Anderson has been ruled out for over a month with a hamstring injury.
Wolves will be facing one of the league in-form strikers in Wayne Rooney, who has scored seven goals in his last four games. Coupled with Wolves’s drastic dip in form in recent months, there should only be one winner in this game. Wolves 0-2 Man Utd.
