Charlie Nicholas is tipping Wolves to claim a 2-1 win over Manchester United in the Premier League clash at Molineux on Monday night.

The Red Devils head into the game looking to try and maintain their solid start to the campaign after they were 4-0 winners over Chelsea FC in their Premier League opener last weekend.

Manchester United are aiming to mount a serious challenge to seal a top-four finish this season after they finished sixth and without a trophy under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last term.

The Red Devils brought in three new signings in the summer with the additions of Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.

However, former Arsenal man Nicholas is tipping home side Wolves to cause something of an upset on Monday night and claim a 2-1 victory over Solskjaer’s men in the Monday night showdown.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Nicholas said: “Nuno Espirito Santo has the energy, drive and passion for the crowd, with Manchester United coming off the back of a 4-0 victory, almost a hallucination is the best way to describe that result.

“I thought Harry Maguire was average, he did everything that was asked of him. He was efficient and got about the pitch, but I don’t want to hear nonsense about him being a leader and strong on the pitch already, it is too soon.

“He has started well, but I am suspect about the right-back and left-back positions at Man United. Chelsea could have easily scored two or three.

“I am still not convinced by Manchester United and I would still sell Paul Pogba.”

Manchester United are aiming to try and seal Champions League qualification this season at the very least after their difficult campaign last term.

The Red Devils brought in Solskjaer as their temporary boss following the sacking of Jose Mourinho in December 2018, before the Norwegian was given the job on a permanent basis back in March.
