Manchester United vs Wolverhampton WanderersEnglish Premier League, KO: 20:00 Dec 29, 2020, Old Trafford
MANCHESTER UNITED are now 10 games unbeaten in domestic action and will be confident of keeping their title bid on track with a win when Wolves come calling.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came under fire after United's early exit from the Champions League but the response has been impressive, with three wins and two draws since that defeat to Leipzig.
If they win their game in hand then the Old Trafford side will be just two points behind leaders Liverpool so Solskjaer will be determined to keep the pressure on by beating Wolves.
Only a late Jamie Vardy strike stopped United from winning at Leicester on Boxing Day while Wolves struck in the dying stages a day later to claim a deserved point at home to Spurs.
But it's now just one win in five for Nuno Espirito Santo's men and they will need to get back to their best to take anything home from Old Trafford.
How the bookies view it
Recent head to head
There was little between these sides last term as they faced off four times in the league and FA Cup. Three of the games ended level while United edged the FA Cup replay 1-0 thanks to Juan Mata's goal (below).
The last two league meetings at Old Trafford were stalemates but Manchester United won six in a row at home before that. Wolves haven't won on United's patch since way back in 1980.
Players to watch
I'd expect both gaffers to make some changes during the hectic festive schedule. Edinson Cavani came off the bench for United at the weekend and could land a start here. The Uruguayan is 29/20 at 888Sport for anytime scorer which looks good value.
Pedro Neto's pace could cause United's defence some problems and the winger is overpriced at 4/1 with Unibet to net his sixth of the season.
Anything else catch the eye?
Last season's clashes between these sides suggest we will see few thrills, with just three goals scored across those four games. I got my fingers burned backing under 2.5 goals in United's game with Leicester but will go for it again here at 10/11 with McBookie.
I cashed in by backing over 3.5 cards when Wolves took on Spurs and that bet landed in all four of their meetings with United last term. A repeat here pays 21/20 at McBookie.
The score was level at half-time in three of the four meetings last term and that could easily come up again. It pays 15/11 at SBK.
