Wolves v Manchester United Predictions, Betting Tips and Previews

Molineux - Premier League

Nuno Santo's Wolves side host Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United in the glamour FA Cup Quarter Final tie this weekend.

Past Meetings

These sides played out a 1-1 draw when they met at Old Trafford in Premier League action earlier this season.
With United winning their two previous encounters - back in the 2010-11 season - by an aggregate score of 9-1 to the Red Devils.

Team News

Santo has a fully fit squad to chose from ahead of the visit from last season's beaten finalists, with defender Elliot Bennett return to the squad after serving a one game ban for picking up five domestic yellow cards this so far this season.

Solakjaer will make a late check on midfielder Ander Herrera, who is recovering from a hamstring injury, but Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata are all sidelined for the visitors. Phil Jones, Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia are al back in first team training, and could be in line for a run out.

Wolves v Manchester United Preview and Predictions

Wolves almost collected a huge three points away at Chelsea in the Premier League last weekend, only to be undone by Eden Hazard's late goal, although they do have a one point cushion on Watford in the race for seventh place. They beat Liverpool in the Third Round of this competition back in January, and since then they have stuttered past League One Shrewsbury - via a replay - and Championship side Bristol City, and Santo will face a dilemma on how strong a team to put out.

Solskjaer suffered his first domestic defeat as United manager last weekend, losing 2-0 away at Arsenal, on the back of the 3-1 Champions League win away at PSG and the Norwegian must decide how seriously he wants to take this competition.

Given United's strong FA Cup pedigree, Solskjaer will go really for this tie in the West Midlands, as they have shown their intentions to push for silverware in the previous rounds, against top flight rivals Arsenal and Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea 13/10.

The home side will not make it easy for United, and they have consistently shown this season that they can mix it wit the best in the Premier League, particularly on home territory, and with that in mind a BTTS bet comes in at 3/4.

Recommended Bets

Manchester United to win 2-1 at 8/1

United are performing very well in recent weeks, despite their league slip up against Unai Emery's Arsenal, and Solskjaer will want to end the season with a trophy - and this looks to be a better route than the Champions League title. Wolves will make this into a battle, but the feeling is that United will have just enough to progress to the semi-final stage.

Romelu Lukaku to score anytime at 3/2

Lukaku has been United's go-to man in recent weeks, with six goals in his last four games in league and domestic action for Solskjaer's side. With Anthony Martial only just returning to full match fitness, Lukaku has struck up a promising partnership with Marcus Rashford in the past month.
