The match will be played at Old Trafford on Monday 14 August 2023 at 8 PM. It is not the biggest match to end the opening week but it will be one of interest.

Wolves changed managers a few days to the start of the season. With little preparation time for Erik ten Hag, people will be interested to see what Gary O'Neil can do.

Man United vs Wolves predictions

Here are our predictions and tips for this clash

Prediction 1: Man United to Win

Man United are the hosts of this game. This gives them the home advantage. They are also playing against a Wolves side that have only beaten them thrice in their last 15 outings. Moreso, Wolves are currently unstable after Julen Lopetegui was replaced by O'Neil a few days before the start of the season. All of these will count in United's favour which will help them keep all three points at Old Trafford.

Prediction 2: Marcus Rashford to score

Marcus Rashford is set to take centre stage once again for the EFL Cup defending champions. A goal or two is a given for the Englishman, who is now the club's highest-paid player after signing a new contract in July.

He will want to exert dominance in the squad, especially with new attacking signing Rasmus Højlund waiting on the wings due to his injury.

Prediction 3: Over 2.5 goals

Man United have been unable to put more than two goals past Wolves since 2012 when they defeated their opening day opponents 5-0 at the Molineux.

This time will be different, however, as Erik ten Hag is poised to play a very attacking style of football this season. Man United may even go ahead to challenge for the most goals scored in the league. Wolves, however, will be their first victims.

Man United recent form

Man United have not had the best pre-season preparations. By all standards, it could be considered a failure. However, when the familiar atmosphere of the Premier League returns, they are sure to turn up the heat.

Wolves recent form

Wolves under Julen Lopetegui had a better pre-season than Man United. Wins against Porto, Victoria Guimaraes and Stade Rennais are under their belt and that will spur the players to take to Old Trafford without fear. The rest will be up to new manager Gary O'Neil and his tactics.
