Following an impressive opening-day rout against Leeds United, in which the Red Devils won 5-1, reality struck on the road to Southampton, with the South Coast club taking a point off the Premier League title hopefuls. So, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who marks a century of Premier League games at the helm, will be eyeing up a return to winning ways here in the West Midlands.
The Norwegian discovered his Champions League group-stage fate on Thursday night (Villarreal, Atalanta and Young Boys), but focus will be on domestic matters for the time being. With expensive summer recruits in Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, he will undoubtedly be looking towards a title challenge this term.
As for Wolves they are still getting to grips post-Nuno Espirito Santo, with summer appointment Bruno Lage yet to win his first Premier League game, losing back-to-back 1-0s in difficult ties against Leicester and Tottenham. But, it doesn’t get any easier for Lage, with ominous contest against another heavyweight.
A 4-0 thrashing of Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup will have taken some of the early pressure off his shoulders, but Wolves are yet to find the target in the league, so Lage will be looking towards his attacking armoury in an effort to conjure up a moment of magic and give Solskjaer another difficult away day.
Wolves vs Man Utd: Match Stats
If Wolves are to open their Premier League account for the season and breach Man Utd’s net, then Adama Traore will need to start converting some of the chances that have fallen his way. The Spanish speedster has had more shots in the Premier League this season (10) than any other player apart from Michail Antonio (11).
For Man Utd, Paul Pogba has already assisted five goals in the Premier League this campaign; the most ever by a player after two games of a season in the competition. Mason Greenwood has profited from the Frenchman’s playmaker proficiency and will be looking to make it three games on the bounce in which he has hit the target, asking further questions of Gareth Southgate after he was omitted from the England squad for September’s World Cup Qualifiers.

Manchester United are unbeaten in their last 27 Premier League away games – if they avoid defeat here they will set a new record for longest unbeaten away run in English Football League history. And they face a Wolves side against whom they beat on the final day of the 2020/21 season (2-1), but the hosts have not lost consecutive home league games against Man Utd since December 1967. Still, a draw would do it for Solskjaer to make away day history.
