Premier League – Manchester United vs Wolves: Betting Preview

Man United vs Wolves

Ronaldo.com previews the Premier League match between Manchester United and Wolves and offers team stats, betting tips and the latest odds.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Manchester United hope to close the gap to the top four by adding another three points to their account against Wolves on Monday night.

The Reds enter the clash at Old Trafford on the back of a 3-1 victory over Burnley last week. They’re now four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal in the Premier League table. Like Tottenham, who sit two points above them in sixth, they have two games in hand over the Gunners in seventh.

Ronaldo is expected to lead the attack once again, while Bruno Fernandes could return on Monday from suspension. Harry Maguire, Victor Lindelof, and Paul Pogba are unavailable while Eric Bailly is a doubt.

Wolves, on the other hand, will play their first match since December 19 after COVID-19 issues forced the ninth-placed visitors to postpone their last two fixtures.
