Manchester United will look to build on their superb opening weekend victory when they take on Wolves at Molineux on Monday night.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side rode their luck during the first half against Chelsea but blew the Londoners away after the break with goals from Marcus Rashford , Anthony Martial and Daniel James securing an impressive 4-0 win.
It was a dream start to the new campaign for Solskjaer and he’ll take heart from the fact United were able to easily dismantle a top four rival like Chelsea but the Red Devils now face another tricky test away to Wolves.
The ambitious hosts are building a talented squad and Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are more than capable of getting a positive result against United on home soil so Solskjaer’s men can’t take anything for granted on Monday.
Manchester United have no fresh injury concerns to worry about but they’ll continue to be without the services of Eric Bailly as the centre-back is facing several weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury.
Alexis Sanchez wasn’t involved against Chelsea after arriving back late to pre-season training following his exploits at the Copa America this summer and it remains to be seen whether he’s deemed fit enough for a recall against Wolves.
James is pushing for a start after scoring off the bench against Chelsea while fellow summer signings Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire should both keep their places after impressing on their debuts.
It never takes much to get the United hype-train rolling, so many were likely expecting their 2020 chances to improve dramatically following their 4-0 drubbing of Chelsea on Matchday 1. But sportsbooks are not overreacting, keeping the Red Devils around 28/1 to win the league. That said, their odds to finish top four did improve slightly, going from about 10/9 to 1/1, which makes sense since Chelsea is one of the teams they’ll be battling for a Champions League spot.

With confidence building following the win last weekend, it’s no surprise that United are the 13/10 favourites to take home all three points against Wolves on Monday night. The hosts are priced at 23/10 while the draw can be backed at 9/4. Wolves are a dangerous side and they’ll be confident of causing Man Utd plenty of problems so I can see them scoring at least one goal. However, United proved last week that their new-look attack is devastating on the counter so the Manchester giants should be strong enough to secure a 2-1 win – which can be backed at 8/1.
For those looking for enough more value, Rashford as first goal-scorer looks a tempting bet as he should be full of confidence following his brace last week and if we add that to a 2-1 United victory then we get excellent odds of 52/1.
