On Monday, August 14, 2023 Manchester United will compete against Wolverhampton in the Matchday 1 of the Premier League match. Watch here, Manchester United vs Wolverhampton live streaming, preview and how to watch it.
Man Utd will host Wolves at Old Trafford on Monday, 14 August 2023, in the Premier League 2023/24 opener. This will be coach Erik ten Hag’s first game in domestic competition after winning the League Cup last season and qualifying for the Champions League this season.
Man Utd has made good preparations for the new season by recruiting three new quality players, namely midfielder Mason Mount, goalkeeper Onana and striker Rasmus Hojlund. They spent almost £200 million to get all three. However, they have also had some problems with injuries this summer.
Ten Hag confirmed that Man United will not be strengthened by many important players in the match against Wolves. He said: “We will be missing a few players in the game against Wolves. Tyrell Malacia still can’t train anymore, he still needs time to recover and be able to play again.
Just like Amad Diallo and Kobbie Maino, they were injured in the collision. Dean Henderson and Rasmus Hojlund will also have to rest for a few weeks to recover.” In addition, Anthony Martial is also out with a knee injury.
On the other hand, Wolves are also facing big challenges in this new season. They only finished 13th in the Premier League last season and have not added any new players in the transfer market. They also recently sacked coach Julen Lopetegui after a poor result in a friendly match.
Wolves will most likely be led by caretaker coach Gary O’Neil, former Bournemouth coach, against Man Utd. They are at full strength without player injuries. However, they will face a strong and experienced opponent at Old Trafford.
Based on the history of meetings between the two teams, Man Utd and Wolves have met 12 times in all competitions since 2018. Man United won five times, Wolves won three times and drew four times. Their last meeting was in May 2023, when Man Utd won 2-1 at Molineux with goals from Antony and Mount.
Based on the latest performance, it seems that Man Utd is still the favorite to get three points in this opening game. However, Wolves should not be underestimated because they have some quality players such as Saša Kalajdžić, Pedro Neto and Chem Campbell. They may also have more motivation to prove themselves after a change of coach.
