Wolves vs Man Utd: Predictions
Manchester United will no question have one eye firmly fixed on Gdansk, where a Europa League final meeting with Villarreal await them on Wednesday night, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the cusp of Premier League history and will want to etch his name in Red Devil folklore, adding a huge emphasis on Sunday afternoon.
The North West club are just one game shy of becoming only the fourth side to remain unbeaten away from home across an entire English top-flight campaign, with Preston in 1888/89, Arsenal in 2001/02 and the Gunners again in 2003/04, the only three sides so far able to achieve that ‘Invincible’ feat on the road.
It’s a double-edged for the Norwegian: rest players with an eye on Wednesday’s match and risk missing out on a seat at the ‘Invincible’ table, or go full strength and risk a difference-maker sustaining a knock for the club’s season-defining contest against Unai Emery’s side.
For Wolves, the best they can hope for is 12th, which is where they currently sit, but Nuno Espirito Santo will be wary of a clutch of clubs below them ready to pounce and leapfrog them if they come up short against the division’s runners-up, which he will be desperate to avoid.

Wolves vs Man Utd: Match Stats
As mentioned, Man Utd have been near all-conquering away from home this season and Solskjaer is just one match away from doing something Sir Alex Ferguson failed to do in his illustrious 33 years at the club: execute an unbeaten season away from Old Trafford. It therefore bodes well for the club that Wolves have fired a blank in each of their past two games and look a shadow of the side that has taken the Premier League by storm over the previous two seasons.
For the Red Devils one player who will be relishing this matchup is Marcus Rashford. The England international will want to conclude the campaign with a flourish, entering Euro 2020 with momentum, but also, he is just one goal away from bagging his 100th in all competitions across his senior career for club and country. In fact, he has scored in two of his three starts against Wolves for Man Utd.
This has not been the most free-scoring fixture over the years, with under 2.5 goals hitting the onion bag in each of the previous five matches across all competitions. This season, it was another cagey affair, with the Red Devils executing a smash-and-grab, sealing a 1-0 triumph in the dying embers through Rashford’s 93rd-minute winner.
