Manchester United travel to face Wolves hoping to climb up the Premier League table on Thursday at 8:15pm (UK time).

Wolves vs Manchester United odds

Manchester United

*Odds correct as of 07:45 on January 31

With some of this week’s games already played, Manchester United sit ninth in the Premier League. Although it is only a drop of one position since the week started, it will serve as further motivation for their trip to Molineux. The Red Devils could jump up to seventh with victory here, following Brighton’s shock defeat to Luton. However, Man Utd are in inconsistent form with just one win from their past six in the Premier League. That victory, over Aston Villa in which they came from 2-0 down to win 3-2, has been accompanied by three defeats and two draws. Last time out in the Premier League it was a draw against Tottenham, meaning they are now winless in two.

Wolves, meanwhile, have been climbing up the table and would overtake Man Utd with victory here. Although they have won just eight games in the Premier League, three of those have come in their past four matches, moving them away from any potential relegation battle. The run started with a victory over Chelsea on Christmas Eve and has also included wins against Brentford and Everton. The winning run came to an end last time out, but they still managed a goalless draw against Brighton.

Wolves vs Manchester United match tip

Wolves win and BTTS No @ 21/5

It’s now four away games without victory for Manchester United, since their 3-0 win over Everton at Goodison Park at the end of November. Three of those games have ended in defeat, with the only exception being the goalless draw with Liverpool and Anfield. However, that did also follow a trend, with Man Utd failing to score in three of their last four away Premier League matches. Wolves, meanwhile, have already beaten Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea at Molineux.

Wolves vs Manchester United Bet-Builder tip

1st Half Draw, Under 0.5 1st Half goals and Matheus Cunha to score anytime

Building on Man Utd’s away form, the Red Devils’ defeats have often come due to poor showings in the second half. In fact, each of their past four away league games have been 0-0 at half-time. Looking to punish the Man Utd defence in the second half will be Matheus Cunha, with the Brazilian having scored in two of his past three home league games.

Joao Gomes also misses out through suspension, but Wolves hope to be able to call upon Pablo Sarabia. Rayan Ait-Nouri made his return from the Africa Cup of Nations in the cup at the weekend.
