Michael Owen reveals his prediction for Wolves v Man United
Michael Owen states his prediction for Man United's trip to Wolves on Monday night in the Premier League
Michael Owen is backing Wolves to get something from the game when they host Manchester United in Monday’s Premier League clash at Molineux.
The Red Devils kicked off their Premier League campaign with an impressive 4-0 win over Chelsea FC at Old Trafford at the weekend as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men ran riot in front of their home fans.
Manchester United’s main focus this season will be trying to break back into the top four after they finished in sixth place and without a trophy last term.
The Red Devils are now preparing for their trip to Wolves on Monday night as they aim to make it back to back wins in their opening two games of the new campaign.
However, former Liverpool FC and Manchester United striker Owen seems to think that the Red Devils may struggle a little bit when they take on Wolves on Monday night.
Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “United were excellent in the second half against Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday, but they are in for a tough test at Molineux against a Wolves side who were, arguably, unlucky not to take all three points at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
“Wolves entertain Armenian side Pyunik on Thursday in the Europa League, but they hold a 4-0 lead from the 1st leg and Nuno Espirito Santo is likely to shuffle his pack ahead of the visit of United.
“It is a game I don’t think the hosts will lose and we will know more about United’s top-four credentials after their trip to the Black Country.”
Manchester United made three signings in the summer transfer window as they completed deals for Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James.
The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in the 2012-13 season.
