Tip Wolves - Manchester United
Prediction published on January 3, 2020 at 7:26 PM - Modified on January 3, 2020 at 8:26 PM
Two of the top seven teams in the Premier League meet in the third round of the FA Cup. Wolves are seventh and host Manchester United who are two places above them in the table. It's a big game but neither side will field anything like a full strength side. Wolves nearly made it to the final last season, holding a 2-0 semi-final lead against Watford before losing 3-2. They have claimed some big scalps in this competition in recent years including both Liverpool and Manchester United on their way to that semi-final last season. They have had an up and down season but are still in with a good chance of another season in European football. Their last two games have both been lost though and with such a busy schedule, changes are going to be made for this game.
The same goes for Manchester United, especially with them having a midweek EFL Cup semi-final in midweek. They are being their usual inconsistent selves at present. Good performances are followed by poor ones as shown when losing 2-0 at Arsenal on New Year's Day. United are fifth in the Premier League but they have already lost six fixtures. A younger than usual line-up is expected for this game and with it being United, anything could happen. Go for both teams to score in this game.
Key points Wolves - Manchester United
Both teams have scored in four of the last five Wolves games.
The last match played between these two clubs was a 1-1 draw at Molineux in August 2019.
Manchester United have only kept one clean sheet in their last nine away games.
Wolves have only one clean sheet in the last seven matches.
Conclusion Wolves - Manchester United
This should be a good game despite all the players that are likely to be left on the sidelines. That's what happens in England's crazy fixture list and it makes this game hard to predict in terms of an end result. Both sides score regularly but rarely keep clean sheets, so the tip here is for both teams to score in this cup tie.
