Manchester United started the season with a 5-1 win over Leeds United in what was a stunning performance from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side. However, United’s second game of the season was an unimpressive 1-1 draw with Southampton.
United travel to face Wolves at the Molineux Stadium this weekend, and Wolves have had a poor start to the season, as they are yet to win any of their games this season and have so far failed to score a goal.
Making his prediction for this game, former Manchester United striker Michael Owen backed United to beat Wolves 1-0, and admitted that he’s not expecting a thrilling game.
“Wolves have had 42 shots in their first two games but are yet to find the net,” Owen told BetVictor.
“They need more cutting edge up top, and they’ll be hoping Raul Jimenez can start scoring again soon.
“It’s been a tough start for boss Bruno Lage as he tries to change Wolves’ style of football. After that thrilling opening weekend win against Leeds, United laboured to a draw at Southampton.
“It’s hard to know what to make of them but one thing is for certain, give Mason Greenwood chances and he will score. I know all about being the starting striker at a young age and believe me, this boy has all the qualities.
“I think United will get back to winning ways here. I don’t think it will be a thriller but think United will win this 1-0.”
