Man United is in fourth place with 63 points, 19 points behind Manchester City who are at the top of the standings. Liverpool are in fifth position, one level below the Champions League zone, only one point away from United. Manchester United had to swallow a 1-0 defeat at home to West Ham United in their last Premier League game.
The defeat made manager Erik ten Hag give his players two days off to rest and refresh their minds. He hopes this decision will bring positive results for his team. The reason is, the Red Devils are only one point ahead of the teams below them who are eyeing the top four, even though they still have one game remaining.
Ten Hag is keen to remind his players that ‘all’ is still in their hands, and with three of their remaining four PL games to be played at Old Trafford, they have good reason to believe they will play in next season’s UEFA Champions League.
This is backed by a 26-match unbeaten run at home, with their last home PL loss coming against Brighton on the first day of the season. This shows that Old Trafford is back to being a fortress that is feared by its opponents.
Wolverhampton won 1-0 at home to Aston Villa in their last league outing, which left them in 13th place with 40 points. Wolves have scored 30 goals and conceded 50 in 35 games. They became only the fourth team in PL history to survive despite being bottom of the table at Christmas, so it’s little wonder that manager Julen Lopetegui called it ‘the most difficult feat in football’.
With the pressure already relieved, maybe Wolves can try to improve their form on the road as they have won just two of their last 21 away PL matches. For that, they need to be able to keep their nets clean as only one of the last eight H2H encounters with Man Utd saw both teams score.
However, Wolves must not forget that they won at Old Trafford last season, and that Man Utd are not in the best condition after two successive defeats. They also have the team’s two top scorers, Rúben Neves and Daniel Podence, who scored six goals each. But on the other hand, Man Utd has Marcus Rashford who is the club’s top scorer with 16 goals, which is the fifth highest number among the league’s top scorers in 2022/2023, seven of which were the opening goals of the game. Rashford also scored the winner for United in their previous meeting at the Molineux Stadium in December.
