The final Premier League game to take place on the opening weekend of the season sees Man Utd host Wolves at Old Trafford. The home side enjoyed a solid first season under Erik Ten Hag last year and will be looking to build on that this time around, while Wolves’ preparations for the season have been far from ideal with Julen Lopetegui quitting the managerial post just last week. Ahead of the clash at Old Trafford, here are some free tips and predictions to consider.

The best Man Utd vs Wolves predictions and picks

Man Utd -1 handicap

This match is set to be contested between two teams who couldn’t be further apart in their preparations of the season. On one side there is Manchester United, who have filled three key positions over the summer and on the other is Wolves, who have sold their best midfielder and defender and whose manager walked out on them last week. The home side should have a field day on Monday and we expect them to win by quite a margin.

Man Utd to keep a clean sheet

Last season, Wolves were solid in defence and hard to beat, however, they found goals hard to come by. In truth, this has been the case since Raul Jimenez broke his skull in 2020. Instead of trying to resolve that issue this summer, Wolves have decided to once again neglect the position despite Jimenez and Diego Costa both leaving the club. Somehow, it looks like they are going to be even more toothless upfront this season and the United defence should have an easy night on Monday.

Marcus Rashford to score anytime

Last season, Marcus Rashford had the campaign of his career, netting 30 goals in all competitions for Man Utd. The England forward played much of the season on the left wing but did occasionally play up front and he comes into this season as fit as a fiddle. He will play up top on Monday night due to Rasmus Hojlund’s injury and we expect him to get on the scoresheet.

Man Utd vs Wolves: The theatre is set

Man Utd

Going into the 23/24, Manchester United fans will be feeling more optimistic about their team’s hopes than they have done in a long time. The Reds had a productive season last year, winning the Carabao Cup and finishing third in the league. After adding Mount, Onana and Hojlund to their squad, things could get even better for United this season.


After surviving relegation last season, most people expected the Wolve board to invest heavily in the squad this summer to push back up into the top half of the table. Instead, they have got considerably weaker via the sales of Nathan Collins and Ruben Neves and have only brought in Matt Doherty on a free transfer. If they don’t bring in any more new players then it could be a long season for their fans.
