Tip Manchester United - Wolves
Prediction published on December 31, 2021 at 4:32 PM - Modified on December 31, 2021 at 5:32 PM
Wolverhampton Wanderers will be back in action on Monday, traveling to Manchester to take on Manchester United in their first game of the new year. Ahead of this game, United have 31 points, in sixth place, while Wolves are eighth with 25 points. It’s been five games in charge for German Ralf Rangnick and for the first time, United showed their true attacking prowess in beating Burnley 3-1. That was the first time in five matches that they scored more than a goal. In the last seven matches they have two clean sheets and four of the last five have ended in under 2.5 goals. The game against Burnley marked their eighth straight unbeaten outing and they’ll be looking to rise to sixth with a win here.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have been unique this season with their defensive approach to matches. They’ve sacrificed a lot in attack for the good of defence and as a result, they have the joint second best defence, having let in just 14 goals. However, in attack, they are only better than bottom placed Norwich, who have scored eight goals so far. In the last five matches, Wolves have scored just one goal, and in their last 10 matches, only one has produced over 2.5 goals. In their last 10 matches, Wolves have conceded two goals in just one game, a 2-0 away loss to Crystal Palace and they have five clean sheets in the last seven games.

Wolves aren’t the best scorers around; the much success they’ve had in the league this season has been down to resolute defending. This is what they’ll bank on again as they take on Manchester United. United haven’t posted much success in attack lately; their recent matches have been low scoring, except for the one against Burnley. Here two defensive sides meet and we can easily predict under 2.5 goals.
