The top game in the third main round of the FA Cup found no winner in regular time a week and a half ago.

But on Wednesday evening there will be another duel between the two Europa League starters between Manchester United and Wolverhampton.

Manchester United – statistics & current form

Manchester United are five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea after 22 of 38 games in the English Premier League. This would result in another year without the premier class. Without a doubt, the team of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is currently lagging behind expectations. After all, there is an improvement compared to the previous year.

The criticism of the Norwegian head coach is limited, the former professional still has enough credit because of his performance as a player. But sooner or later Manchester United will have to live up to expectations again. Money doesn’t matter and rumors are currently circulating that the Portuguese Bruno Fernandes should be committed for 75 million euros this winter.

If the people in charge give Solskjaer a little time, a lot is certainly possible with the Red Devils. With Mason Greenwood, Tahith Chong or Brandon Williams, Manchester United has many great talents. However, consistency is still a big problem and there are always setbacks to deal with.

Nevertheless, the clear favorite role in the cup duel between Manchester United and Wolverhampton for the tip on the home win is absolutely justified. The Red Devils are extremely strong at home this season. At Old Trafford there were twelve cross-competition wins, four draws and only two defeats.

In comparison to the first cup game, some regular players – such as Marcus Rashford – will probably be on the starting line-up.

Probable lineup of Manchester United:
➱ Romero – Williams, Lindelöf, Maguire, Young – Pereira, Matic – James, Mata, Martial – Rashford

Wolverhampton – statistics & current form

In so far as the promoted champion succeeds in staying in the Premier League, the second year is often extremely difficult. The Wolverhampton Wanderers, or “Wolves” for short, are the exception. The club, which is now in Chinese hands, has a clear concept and will probably be able to consolidate in the top half of the table in the long term.

As a newcomer, they immediately qualified for the UEFA Europa League and this season, the team of Nuno Espirito Santo is also at the front. With 31 points, the team has only three points less on the credit side than Manchester United. Most recently, despite a 0-2 deficit, there was even a victory against defending champions Manchester City.

After the catastrophic start of the season (no victory in the first six games), the team caught up again and convinced with a lot of wit and finesse. Finally, the form curve shows a little down again, after the victory against the Citizens Wolverhampton remained four times without success.

The squad is strong, but Nuno Espirito Santo definitely lacks opportunities for rotation in terms of breadth. The Portuguese coach likes to trust the well-rehearsed team and only makes changes if really necessary. The multiple charges are clearly noticeable and a strong argument for us why a forecast on the guests between Manchester United and Wolverhampton should be discouraged.

Probable lineup of Wolverhampton:
➱ Ruddy – Kliman, Coady, Dendoncker – Vinagre, Saiss, Neves, Doherty – Neto, Jimenez, Traore

Last games from Wolverhampton:

⚽️ 01/11/2020 – Wolverhampton vs. Newcastle 1-1 (Premier League)
⚽️ 01/04/2020 – Wolverhampton vs. Manchester United 0-0 (FA Cup)
⚽️ 01/01/2020 – Watford vs. Wolverhampton 2-1 (Premier League)
⚽️ 12/29/2019 – Liverpool vs. Wolverhampton 1-0 (Premier League)
⚽️ 12/27/2019 – Wolverhampton vs. Manchester City 3-2 (Premier League)

Manchester United vs Wolverhampton Direct comparison & statistics highlights

The draw in the first cup duel was not exactly a big surprise. In the meantime, in three of the last four games between Manchester United and Wolverhampton the draw was the right choice. Even in the first season duel of the current season – on match day 2 – there was no winner to be seen.

Interesting detail on the side – since the Premier League return of the “Wolves”, the “Red Devils” have been victorious. In addition to the three games in the Premier League (two draws, a Wolves win) and the first FA Cup duel, Manchester United also failed last year in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup at Wolves (2-1 at Molineux Stadium).

The home advantage is not to be underestimated in view of the strong home record, and Wolverhampton has recently been weak. In the FA Cup replay between Manchester United and Wolverhampton, the tip on the home side is quite justified.
