Man Utd v Wolves Betting Tips – 22nd September 2018
The smile returned to the face of Jose Mourinho last weekend. The Man Utd manager had come in for some serious criticism for the Red Devil’s poor start to the season but they finally clicked into gear with a win over a Watford side who had won their first four matches of the Premier League campaign.
It was a little more tense in the closing stages than Mourinho would have wanted but he was full of praise for his players and coaching staff after the match, even if goalscorer, Chris Smalling, came in for some criticism for his new haircut!
Mourinho’s next assignment is against a manager he knows very well, Nuno Espirito Santo. The Wolves boss learned a lot about management when he was a goalkeeper in Mourinho’s successful Porto team but the two will be looking to upset the other when they meet at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Wolves have taken to life in the EPL incredibly well following their promotion from the Championship last season. The Wanderers claimed their second win in a row against Burnley last weekend and will head to Old Trafford without any fear.
Man Utd to Make Their Premier League Class Tell
Wolves are rightly winning praise for the way they’ve attacked their first season in the EPL for six years. The 1-0 scoreline against Burnley makes it look as though Wolves just about snuck through but they absolutely dominated, creating 30 chances.
Espirito Santo’s men will give it their best to try and get on the scoresheet at Old Trafford but there is no chance that Mourinho’s men will allow the away side to have anything like that number of chances.
In fact, we think that a thoroughly professional performance from Man Utd will see them pass this tough examination.
Many of the Premier League’s big boys made statements of intent with classy performances last weekend and Mourinho is desperate to ensure that his team do not fall any further behind the early pace setters.
Wolves only wins in the EPL so far came against West Ham and Burnley who were both in terrible form at the time so we are confident to make a home win the headline pick of our Man Utd v Wolves betting tips at $1.57 with bet365.
Wolves to be Beaten Back into Their Shells
Wolves have already shown that they are not going to be shrinking violets. They will take teams on wherever possible but we think there’s a real chance things may conspire against them on Saturday.
Man Utd have started strongly in a number of matches recently and a similarly fast start may make Wolves realise just how big a task this is going to be.
Although the ambitious Wolves board spent well over the summer, they are really lacking in Premier League experience. We’ve seen plenty of teams succumb to the pressure of playing in the ‘Theatre of Dreams’ and we think United will hammer home the advantage of playing in front of their own fans nice and early.
So, it makes sense to bet on the Man Utd/Man Utd selection in Unibet’s half time/full time market at $2.38. Another tempting option is on the first half having more goals than the second at $3.10 with BetEasy as the perfect United performance would see them take a commanding first half lead before killing the game off.
Finally, consider betting on the Man Utd 2-0 correct score which is available at $6.50 with Pointsbet.
