Clean sheets have been thin on the ground for Wolves and Solskjaer's men this season, and Al Hain-Cole expects goals at both ends at Old Trafford

After two impressive cup performances, Manchester United will be determined to get their Premier League campaign back on track when they welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers to Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Red Devils have lost three of their last four league matches, but raised morale with an emphatic 6-0 FA Cup victory against Tranmere Rovers and a 1-0 Carabao Cup win at Manchester City over the last seven days.

Manchester United vs Wolves latest odds

Having run out 1-0 winners against this opposition in the recent FA Cup clash, they are 2.10 favourites with Sportsbet to round off an impressive week with a welcome three points.

However, that was the first defeat in six encounters between the sides for Nuno Espirito Santo’s team, who can be backed at 3.50 to come out on top here.

Two of the last three meetings between this pair have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 3.20 on them cancelling each other out once again here.

Manchester United vs Wolves team news

Axel Tuanzebe, Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay and Marcus Rashford all remain sidelined due to long-term injuries.

Ruben Vinagre is the only absentee for the away side, having suffered a muscle injury in the FA Cup defeat at this ground.

Manchester United vs Wolves preview

Wednesday’s 1-0 victory means Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are only the second side to keep a clean sheet at the Etihad Stadium this season – the other being Wolves.

However, the visitors have conceded in 15 of their 16 league matches since the visit to the home of champions, so seem unlikely to hold strong at Old Trafford as well.

Indeed, United has failed to score only once in 19 matches in their own back yard this season, whilst conceding in all but four of their 24 league games home and away.

Manchester United vs Wolves predictions

All in all, odds of 1.91 appear generous on both teams getting on target for the eighth match in 10 here, as well as a 15th game in 17 for the guests.
