Where: Molineux, Wolverhampton, EnglandWhen: Friday, February 2, 4:15 AM
Erik Ten Hag is still Untied’s manager. Despite all the controversies and poor results, the Dutchman somehow still has the board’s confidence. Conversely, Wolves are in solid form, not losing for a long time, but still showing plenty of weaknesses in their play. Their first meeting against United left a bitter taste, with the Wolves missing tons of chances at Trafford, dominating throughout the game, yet losing in the end.
Wolves vs. Manchester United Preview
Gary O’Neil’s boys haven’t lost in the past seven events, posting five wins and two draws along the way. To be honest, we were expecting to see the Wolves like this throughout the entire season because they really have a very good team with solid individuals.
In all the victories, this unit netted at least twice, showing its high offensive potential. The Wolves may lack a few players who are on international duties, but overall, the replacements are covering up everything for now.
Wolves haven’t lost at home since mid-September, when Liverpool took all three points at Molineux. That often goes under the radar since there isn’t too much hype about Wovlerhampton’s results like for some other Premiership teams.
For instance, United hasn’t lost for three in a row, and the talks about their rise are already piling in the media. They beat Wigan and Newport and, in between, played 2-2 against Tottenham, not showing anything in particular.
The clash with Newport showed plenty of issues, especially in the back line, which has been a problem for Ten Hag since the campaign began. United’s players celebrated goals against Newport, like against one EPL unit, which speaks a lot about the state of mind and the locker room.
The good thing in their recent performances is the offensive production, with the Red Devils netting two or more in four of the past five appearances. It’s always encouraging to see your strikers doing a solid job, even if the rivals aren’t that great.
