Manchester United got their first ’emphatic’ victory under Ralf Rangnick on Thursday night, as his side took apart Burnley 3-1 at Old Trafford. Despite some threats from Sean Dyche’s Clarets in the opening exchanges, the Red Devils cruised to a 3-0 lead by the 35th minute and they held out — Aaron Lennon’s consolation aside — to claim three crucial points, glossing over their disappointing draw to Newcastle earlier in the week.
The German will now look to build on that performance and inch ever closer to the Champions League places. As things stand, Man Utd are only four points adrift of fourth-placed Arsenal, but they do have a game in hand on their London adversaries, so a win here is absolutely crucial for their European aspirations.
However, they’re unlikely to be handed an easy run out against a Wolves side who have proven potent and positive under Bruno Lage this season. The West Midlands side enter this contest having recently claimed a point off Chelsea and keeping clean sheets in five of their last seven matches.
Wolves’ only defeats in that aforementioned run have come at the hands of Liverpool and Manchester City, so they have certainly found form since a sleepwalking start to the season. A win here for Lage’s men would seriously issue a statement of their intent, and would close the gap between the two clubs to just three points.

Man Utd vs Wolves: Match Stats
Cristiano Ronaldo’s first ever Premier League start actually came in a match against Wolves back in August 2003. An unlikely John O’Shea strike secured Sir Alex Ferguson’s men a 1-0 win, but Ronaldo will be looking to play protagonist next week. He has actually never scored against Wolves, in two appearances, so will be itching to add yet another scalp to his ridiculous collection.
If Man Utd are to overcome a tough opponent then heads will need to remain calm. In Harry Maguire, Rangnick has a solid defender and a slick distributor, but football’s most expensive defender has a propensity to unveil an erratic side to his game. Only John McGinn (16) has picked up more yellow cards than Maguire (15) since the start of last season in the Premier League, so he will need to temper his tenacity.
Wolves are winless in their last 10 away league games against Man Utd, a concerning run that stretches back to a 1-0 win in February 1980. They’ve also failed to score on seven occasions in that barren streak, netting just three goals in total. To make matters worse, Wolves have fired a blank in their last three visits to Old Trafford, which all came in 2020.
