Manchester United will be looking to make a further push up the table in the Premier League when they invite Wolverhampton Wanderers to Old Trafford on Monday evening.

The Red Devils defeated Burnley 3-1 on Thursday evening, while Wolves’ fixture against Arsenal had to be postponed as a result of a COVID outbreak within their rank and file.

Our preview will focus on Melbet and Konfambet Nigeria options and prices for our betting tips today.

MANCHESTER UNITED

Man United have come under severe criticism for their lack of finishing in their recent matches under new manager Ralf Rangnick, especially in the wake of their dour draw with Newcastle. They responded in style in their midweek match against Burnley, racing to an early 3-0 lead in the first half before Burnley clawed back a goal late in that eventful first half and no further goals in the 2nd half.

That win extended their unbeaten streak to 8 games – 6 Under Ragnick and 2 under Carrick who briefly served as the caretaker boss when Solskjaer was given his marching orders. They are now 7th on the log, just four points behind 4th placed Arsenal who lost to Man City on Sunday, but with two games in hand.


They have been in stellar form at the Theatre of Dreams and with almost the full squad at his disposal, Ragnick will be pushing them to go for a fourth win on the trot in their backyard.

WOLVERHAMPTON

A COVID outbreak in the Wolves camp led to the postponement of their midweek tie against Arsenal at the Emirates. With this Monday night clash at Old Trafford cleared to proceed as scheduled, they will be looking to continue their push for European football places.

That push has run out of steam in recent weeks following a cold spell that has seen them win just one of their last six league games. The West Midlands outfit currently are in 9th spot with 25 points, but like the hosts, they also have a couple of games in hand and could rise back up in a flash if they can capitalize on them.

Wolves have really struggled up front but they have pretty much kept their defensive principles even in their recent struggles with 5 clean sheets in their last 7 matches and they will certainly be a hard nut to crack here.

MANCHESTER UNITED VS WOLVES BETTING PREDICTIONS

It’s fair to say the Red Devils are still trying to assimilate to Ragnick’s gegenpress style of play. Whilst they have been solid for the most part, they have struggled to break down teams and against this well-rested and disciplined Wolves’ team, we could be in for another slugfest with few sniffs on goal. They have struggled to break this team in the past with 6 of their last 7 encounters ending with fewer than 3 total goals. A repeat of that here pays @ 1.87 at Konfambet Bonus and we are rolling with it as our initial Premier League prediction today.  



Man United showed glimpses of a better offensive output in their last match and we feel they will carry some bounce into this game. Against a team that likes to sit back and soak in the pressure, we expect them to dominate the possession here and given their affinity for wing play, they could get quite a few corners here. Melbet Bonus have them priced at 1.57 to get at least 6 corners and we feel this is good enough for our final tip.
