Wolves vs Manchester United

, KO: 19:55 Mar 16, 2019, Molineux
Manchester United

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER'S remarkable domestic run has come to end, with Arsenal handing the caretaker Manchester United boss his first defeat in English football.

I tipped the Gunners to be the first side to topple Solksjaer's United but, unfortunately, that was in the last round of the FA Cup where the Red Devils eased to a 3-1 win at the Emirates.

It wasn't until 10 games later that United finally fell on domestic duty, with Arsenal claiming a deserved 2-0 win last weekend in the Premiership to ignite their top-four hopes.

Now Solksjaer's side find themselves back on FA Cup duty and their reward for that Emirates win was another tough away day at Molineux, with Wolves third favourites to lift the trophy behind both Manchester sides.

When Jose Mourinho was at the helm, United drew 1-1 with Wolves at Old Trafford earlier in the season, one of several excellent results against the top teams for the promoted side.

Another came just last weekend, when Chelsea needed a late Eden Hazard goal to escape with a 1-1 draw against Nuno Espirito Santo's men at Stamford Bridge. I tipped Wolves in the draw no bet market for that clash and the Molineux side, 6-1 outsiders with most firms, came so close to a famous win.

Wolves were excellent on the counter-attack and their joy against the big boys this term is testament to the success of that tactic.

It could be a similar story for this cup tie and I wouldn't be surprised if it ended all square to force extra time. Such an outcome is 12/5 with Sportingbet and if you double a draw with both teams to score the odds increase to 18/5 with Bet Victor.

Wolves have been involved in some thrillers at home this season, including a 3-2 win over Shrewsbury in the Cup, so I like the look of over 2.5 goals at 53/50 with Marathonbet.

Ivan Cavaliero scored in that win over the Shrews and also netted the winner against Bristol City in the last round. If you think he's a Cup talisman for Wolves then you can back him for anytime scorer at 7/2 with Unibet. But Cavaliero hasn't started since that last Cup game, starting every game on the bench, so it's wiser to back striker Raul Jimenez at 9/4 with Unibet.

It's hard to look past Romelu Lukaku for a United goal, given the big Belgian's impressive form of late, netting six times in four games. He's a fitness doubt after injuring his foot but boss Solskjaer is hopeful he can make it.

If Lukaku is fit to play, he looks great value at 2/1 with Bet 365 in the anytime scorer market.

This match between Wolves and Manchester United will be played on Mar 16, 2019 and kick off at 19:55

    Good write up mate cant argue with that. Am a United fan and I think we might just nick it 2-1.

    Lukaku has a little knock so might not play, I fancy Pogba to score.

    Pogba FGS – 15/2
    Pogba Anytime – 5/2
    Pogba to score a header – 14/1
    Pogba to score from outside the box – 6/1

      It’s really about Messi for me. Stop him and you have a great chance.
      But if he’s at his best he can be unstoppable.
