Manchester United vs Wolves


A Big Match

By Wolves
September 22 2018

Nuno Espírito Santo takes his Wolves team to Old Trafford for the first time today to face his old Porto Manager Jose Mourinho

Wolves will be hoping for a third consecutive win today in what is likely to be a huge test of their Premiership ambitions. Man United will be looking for their third consecutive win after beating Young Boys midweek, whilst looking to avoid another home defeat. One thing is for sure; Wolves will not turn up making ten changes to a winning team as is often recalled from Mick McCarhey's time. United have two of their stars Rashford and Matic missing due to suspension, whilst Wolves may well continue to play the same team as for the previous five games.

Well I've gone for a 2-2 draw - I could never pick my team to lose though I think there's a load of optimism in my reckoning!

Is Cav still not fully recovered?

Great to see such a settled side.

Good luck to the lads and our fans making the journey.

I’ve got to be honest, my stomach is going over. If we’d lost the first 5 (never would’ve happened) I wouldn’t feel so bad but this hope thing is dreadful.

UTW!

I think he's back in training Ivy, but I find Nuno tends to keep information re: player fitness pretty close to his chest, so it's hard to know where he's up to.

It is high pace so far and very even Wolverina. Raul is sry effective up front so far. Corner met by Bennett but just over the bar

Dare I say it, we’ve seen it before, especially last week. We certainly create, no problem, but we need a lot of chances to put it in the net. Man United - 1 chance, 1 goal.

Fred defending well to snuff out threat from Jonny. Jonny is linking up well with Jota but Utd are defending very well

Dubious foul on Sanchez taken Fred brings out a great save from Rui

Half time whistle. Good game to watch with good attacking play by both teams, Wolves have had 4 shots at goal with 3 on target to Utd's 3 and 2 but Utd lead from a well taken goal.

Wolves have threatened but still can't find the final touch. Jota is still struggling to find the form we know he is capable of. Neves imperious in midfield in the theatre of dreams!!

We’re competing, no doubt about it - great stuff. Sounds like we may have dropped a little as the half went on but the early tempo was terrific.

Keep up the effort. Just need a goal!

I’ve switched to 5Live now.

2nd half underway. C’mon Wolves!

The draw was the fair result as I see it.However,it really was anyones game and we could have knicked all three points.
I am not surprised.We have shown time and time again this season that we really belongs in the Premier League.Quite different from the last couple of times we went up.

I definetely see us as a solid mid table team this season.We are a couple of classplayers away from breaking into the top six IMO.

It is all in all a magnificent feeling,and who knows?

This might have been the last time for a fair while when we are leaving OT satisfied with just one point.

Next up Soton at home.We will be rightly favoured to get three points from that.

Onwards,upwards.We are shooting for the stars.
