Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester United Match Preview & Trends

Farewell fixture for Nuno as United seek a turn in fortune

Nuno Espirito Santo will step down as Wolves boss at the end of this game. Having endured a tough season at the helm, Nuno can reflect on a job well done throughout his tenure managing top talent and recruiting some excellent players. The Wolves fans will be in attendance to give him the send-off he deserves. As for United, there is no doubt that heavy fixture-congestion has caught up with them despite having a depth in squad few can compete with. Their recent run of results has been poor and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want an improved display as a tune-up before Wednesday’s Europa League Final in Poland against Villareal.

Solskjaer’s men have won 61% of their away matches and have scored in 72% of their fixtures on the road. In fact, 65% of Manchester Utd’s conceded goals were conceded at home and both teams have scored in United’s last 6 games. The Red Devils have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games and at least one first-half goal has been scored in their last 6 games.

Wolverhampton have won just one of their last 5 Premier League games and if If Wolves win, they would reduce the gap with Manchester Utd to a 23-point difference in the league table. It would be Manchester Utd’s first away defeat in 19 away matches after an incredible run of form on the road. Should the match end in a draw United would remain 26 points ahead of Wolverhampton in the league table, and it would be their 19th away match without defeat. If Manchester Utd win, they would increase their lead over Wolverhampton to 29 points in the league table, and it would be Wolves’ 6th consecutive match with at least 1 goal conceded.

Key trends

Wolverhampton Wanderers have picked up an average of 1.39 Points Per Game in their 18 matches played at home

Manchester United’s average Points Per Game in their 18 away games is 2.22

Wolverhampton conceded at least 1 goal in 72% of their home matches.
