Last season Manchester United suffered an opening weekend defeat to Brighton at Old Trafford but they can get off to a flying start against Wolves at Old Trafford.
Last season was a very successful campaign for Erik Ten Hag, who led the Reds to their first trophy in six years, a top four finish and the runners up spot in the FA Cup to treble inning rivals City. After several false starts, the future looks bright at Old Trafford and it’s no surprise that there’s optimism around Old Trafford.

It’s much harder to be optimistic about Wolves, who have replaced Julen Lopetegui with former Bournemouth boss Gary O’Neil after a summer full of rumours about his departure, which came as no surprise but awful timing, given that he’s had less than a week with his new side.
Wolves finished 13th last season thanks to Lopetegui’s arrival and January investment, but over the summer they’ve lost Reuben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Raul Jimenez, with reports that Jose Sa and Max Kilman could also depart.
Last season they were the lowest scorers with 31 goals – just 12 of them coming away from home – and their last three away fixtures were 6-0, 2-0, and 5-0 losses at Brighton, Manchester United and Arsenal respectively.
With that in mind, it makes sense that United – who were second in the home table last season, with only Manchester City ahead of them – are as short as 1/4 with starsports.bet and they should have few problems getting off the mark this evening.
The hosts – who should give debuts to Andre Onana and Mason Mount this evening, although new striker Rasmus Hojlund is out with a back injury – were excellent in front of their home fans last season and can start the new campaign with a comprehensive win.
United only conceded ten goals at Old Trafford in the league last season, and both the 2-0 and 3-0 correct scores appeal here.
