The Red Devils will attempt to make it three Premier League victories in a row when they travel to Molineux on Saturday afternoon to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Manchester United are currently fifth in the table, one point behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, with a game in hand on the capital club, while Wolves sit 18th, boasting 13 points from 16 matches in 2022-23.
Julen Lopetegui’s reign as Wolves head coach has got off to a strong start, with the Spaniard overseeing wins from his two matches at the helm, including the 2-0 success over Gillingham in the EFL Cup on December 20.
Wolves defeated Eveton 2-1 earlier in the week, the result which moved the 2017-18 Championship winners into the 18th spot on the league table, now just one point behind 17th-placed Everton and Lopetegui’s arrival as head coach appears to have given the team an edge, with the 56-year-old managing the likes of Spain and Real Madrid during his career thus far.
The Red Devils have the fifth-best away record in the Premier League this season, picking up 13 points from eight matches, but they have conceded 16 times in their travels during the 2022-23 campaign.
Wolves are still the lowest scorers in the league despite registering twice against Everton. Still, Lopetegui will be confident that he can unlock the attacking talent that undoubtedly exists at Molineux.
