Premier League: Manchester United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers preview

Manchester United have a good chance of extending their winning streak in all competitions to four games as they face newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford on Saturday. The two teams have not met since the 2011-2012 season, when Manchester United contributed to Wolverhampton's relegation with a 4-1 victory in Manchester and a 5-0 demolition job at the Molineux Stadium. Overall, Manchester United have won four of the last five matches against Wolverhampton, but the Wolves did claim a recent victory against the Red Devils, 2-1 in the Premier League in 2011.

Manchester United have recovered from two consecutive Premier League defeats with three successive wins in all competitions, last weekend the Red Devils won 2-1 at Watford in the Premier League and this week they started their Champions League campaign with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Young Boys in Switzerland. Diogo Dalot made his debut for Manchester United in the Champions League match and played very well, but he might have a few more matches to wait before making the starting eleven in the Premier League. Nemanja Matic and Marcus Rashford are suspended for this match, while Phil Jones and Ander Herrera are injured.

Wolves have been performing above expectations so far this season, they have lost just one of their six matches in all competitions and have won the last three. Moreover, they are the only team that have managed to deny Manchester City in the Premier League, they held them to a 1-1 draw at the end of August. Last week Wolves grabbed a narrow 1-0 home victory over Burnley, marking their third consecutive match without conceding. Ivan Cavaleiro remains the only injury concern for the away side, so manager Nuno Espirito Santo will name the exact same starting eleven that he employed in all the five Premier League matches so far this season.

Probable line-ups:

Man United: De Gea - Valencia, Smalling, Lindelof, Young - Pogba, Fellaini, Fred - Lingard, Lukaku, Sanchez

Wolves: Patricio - Bennett, Coady, Boly - Doherty, Moutinho, Neves, Jonny - Traore, Jimenez, Jota

My prediction: Manchester United to win 2-1, the Red Devils will have to fight hard for this victory.

Here are the odds for the match at Bet365:

Man United win - 1.57
Draw - 4.33
Wolves win - 6.50
