Michael Owen is backing Manchester United to make it three wins in a row in the Premier League for the first time this season when they host Wolves on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils head into the game fresh from having kicked off their Champions League campaign with a 3-0 win at Young Boys on Wednesday night.

Manchester United have made something of a stuttering start to the new season and they lost back to back games in the top flight against Tottenham Hotspur and Brighton.

However, they have since bounced back to win their last two games as they look to try and establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season.

And former Liverpool FC star Owen feels confident that the Red Devils will claim all three points when they welcome Wolves to Old Trafford in the top flight this weekend.

Writing in his column for Bet Victor, Owen said: “United have won their last six league games against Wolves at Old Trafford and I feel they will maintain that good record at the weekend although the Molineux outfit have quickly come to terms with the Premier League and should, arguably, be unbeaten so far this season.

“Jose Mourinho has never lost back-to-back home league games in his managerial career but, after three successive away wins, I expect his side to exorcise the demons of that defeat at the hands of Spurs last month.

“Wolves have taken a point against champions City and kept clean sheets in their own back-to-back wins in their last couple of games. This promises to be the game of the weekend and one I feel United will edge.”

Manchester United are aiming to be one of the main contenders for the title this season after they finished second and without a trophy last term under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils have not lifted the Premier League trophy since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
