United set to narrowly edge out Wolves


Manchester United travel to Molineux to take on Wolves on Monday evening as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to continue his dream start to the season.

Marcus Rashford to score first @ 5/1

One of the players who could benefit from Solskjaer being in charge is Marcus Rashford – who looks set to be played through the middle rather than out wide.

Romelu Lukaku’s departure opened up a vacancy up front and against Chelsea, Rashford and Anthony Martial combined well to put Frank Lampard’s men to the sword.

Last season, the England international scored 10 goals in 33 appearances – a fairly solid return for someone who has been accused of not scoring often enough.

Playing down the middle, his lightning pace will cause problems to Wolves’ defence, particularly if United allow Wolves to have the ball and play on the counter-attack.

Additionally, Rashford is fast becoming a trusted lieutenant from the spot, and with the advent of VAR, penalty kicks are set to become more commonplace.

Both teams to score @ 10/11

Despite the comfort of a 4-0 win, the opening match could quite easily have been different for United had Chelsea worn their shooting boots at Old Trafford.

Harry Maguire was fantastic on his debut, but Solskjaer’s men are still very open in midfield, with Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay not exactly the most defensive minded of players.

Wolves finished seventh last season in the Premier League and part of the reason for their excellent campaign was their ability to take points off the top six – grabbing 16 in the process.

They are never shy of attacking any team and have a forward line that can boast goals.

Manchester United to win @ 7/5

United will feel confident after their thrashing of Chelsea last Sunday and there is no doubt that they have an attack capable of putting teams to the sword.

Defensively they might struggle, but United have the advantage of being fresher, with Wolves having already played four extra games due to the Europa League qualifiers. A win on the road against a dangerous team may be an opportunity for the Red Devils to put forward their claims of a top-four finish, something that Solskjaer will be keen to show.
