Manchester United are expected to rest players ahead of Wednesday’s Europa League final and Wolves can take advantage to give Nuno Espirito Santo a fitting send-off.
The popular manager has spent four seasons in charge at Molineux, earning promotion from the Championship and guiding the club to the quarter-finals of the Europa League.
Punters can get 6/4 for him to bow out on a high note with victory here and that is our first Wolves vs Man Utd prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves are coming off a couple of away defeats at Tottenham and Everton, failing to score in either of those matches.
However, their build-up play in the first half at Goodison Park was impressive, with Morgan Gibbs-White and Adama Traore testing Jordan Pickford.
“It was a good performance, especially in the first half,” Nuno said. “We were really organised, pressing high, good combinations, there were a lot of good things.”
The head coach will be hoping for a successful swansong, plus there is the chance to give Wanderers fans something to cheer about on their return to Molineux.
Nuno added: “Sunday will be a very emotional day, but I am so happy that the fans will be back in Molineux and we can share one last special moment together, as one pack.”
Even without supporters, Wolves have managed to prevail in two of their last three games at this venue.
Looking at the Wolves vs Man Utd odds, we like 9/1 for a 2-1 home victory.
Last Wolves line-up: Ruddy, Ait Nouri, Boly, Coady, Semedo, Kilman, Neves, Gibbs-White, Moutinho, Silva, Traore.
A Look At Manchester United’s Betting Odds
Manchester United have faltered since reaching the Europa League final and then wrapping up a place in next season’s Champions League.
The Red Devils were beaten at Old Trafford by Leicester and Liverpool before only drawing 1-1 with already-relegated Fulham.
Edinson Cavani’s superb long-range strike gave United a half-time lead on Tuesday but the Cottagers improved after the break and equalised through Joe Bryan.
This trip does offer Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side the chance to complete an unbeaten campaign on the road.
Bruno Fernandes told MUTV: “The final is a different game but the most important (thing) now is that we focus on Wolves, a difficult game.
“We know they defend well, we know they have quality in the team. We just have to go there and win the game and after we have to think on the next one.”
However, Solskjaer showed he isn’t afraid to prioritise games when making 10 changes for the loss to Leicester and we are certain Wednesday’s clash with Villarreal will be on his mind here.
The often slow-starting Red Devils can be vulnerable to midfielders making runs into the box, so 17/2 for Ruben Neves to open the scoring completes our Wolves vs Man Utd betting tips.
Last Man Utd line-up: De Gea, Lindelof, Shaw, Wan-Bissaka, Tuanzebe, Pogba, Fred, Fernandes, McTominay, Cavani, Greenwood.
Everton 1-0 WOLVES
MAN UTD 1-1 Fulham – Edinson Cavani
Head-to-head: Man Utd 1-0 Wolves, Man Utd 0-0 Wolves, Man Utd 1-0 Wolves, Wolves 0-0 Man Utd, Wolves 1-1 Man Utd
