Our tipster is expecting goals at both ends when Jose Mourinho's charges welcome Nuno Espirito Santo's side to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon

Manchester United play host to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

Jose Mourinho's men were under pressure after losing two of their opening three Premier League matches, but United have responded in style with two league wins and a Champions League victory.

Wolves, though, will not travel to Old Trafford short on confidence; the men from Molineux have, themselves, won their last three matches - keeping a clean sheet in each of those victories - and lost just once this season.

Latest odds

Nevertheless, it is United who are warm favourites to win this one; bet365 go 8/15 (1.53) that the hosts pick up all three points.

Wolves are chalked up as an 11/2 (6.50) chance to win at Old Trafford, while the same firm go 14/5 (3.80) that Santo's side secure a share of the spoils - as they did when Manchester City visited Molineux last month.

Team news

Luke Shaw and Diego Dalot started against Young Boys on Wednesday, but Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia could return for the visit of Wolves. Marcus Rashford is suspended, while Anthony Martial will hope to be involved after starting - and scoring - in Switzerland.

Wolves named an unchanged team for a fifth successive league match against Burnley last time out and Nuno Espirito Santo may be reluctant to deviate from that line-up following a fine performance in the 1-0 win against the Clarets.

Goals at both ends?

Manchester United have managed just one clean sheet in five fixtures in the Premier League this season, while Wolves have scored in five of their six fixtures in domestic competition.

The 17/20 (1.85) quote from bet365 that there are more than two goals scored could prove popular, while the same firm go 13/8 (2.63) that there is more than one goal scored before half time.

Indeed, that second play would have landed in four of the last five matches that Manchester United have contested.

Prediction

Wolves have been keen to get on the front foot season, although Santo's side have been guilty of profligacy on numerous occasions already this term.

Should the visitors continue with their positive approach, they will surely create chances but Mourinho's men certainly possess plenty of quality of their own in the final third.

The 10/11 (1.91) quote, therefore, for both teams to score could represent real value for punters ahead of Saturday's showdown at Old Trafford.

Odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
