Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Manchester United 08/29/2021
The Wolves (0-0-2, 0 point) continued where it left off last season, losing their first two Premier League assignments to make it five in a row dating back to last season. The setbacks against Tottenham and Leicester were close with Wolverhampton just failing to strike back to salvage a draw. But on Wednesday, the Wolves finally broke the drought as they scored four goals en route to a 4-0 whitewash of Nottingham Forest in the second round of the Carabao Cup. The Bruno Lage-managed squad dominated the match with 13 shots on target but it took the 58th minute to score the breakthrough, courtesy of Romain Saisa. The Wolves will need this kind of offense to stun Manchester United and gain their first points of the 2021-22 EPL season.
The Red Devils (1-1-0, 4 points) began the 2021-22 season like a house on fire as they trampled Leeds United, 5-1. Such explosiveness went missing in their second match against Southampton as they needed Mason Greenwood to rescue a point. Currently in sixth place, Manchester United will need another superb performance to ascend to the top of the table. They will look for Bruno Fernandes and Greenwood for goals and Paul Pogba for playmaking. David de Gea will again man the pipes for the Red Devils in hopes of keeping the Wolves’ offense at bay.
Team Statistics: Bruno Fernandes (3 goals), Mason Greenwood (2 goals), Fred (1 goal), Paul Pogba (5 assists), Victor Lindelof (1 assist).
