Wolverhampton Wanderers, stylized as Wolves face off against Manchester United at the Molineux stadium tonight, a return fixture that echoes match week 1 match-up between both sides.
With a trip to the Midlands, the Red Devils will be hoping for similar fortunes as to their August meeting at Old Trafford that had resulted in a 1-0 controversial win.
However, Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United can do one better by putting up a performance that steals the tie away from Wolves to this gift the Red Devils a deserved win unlike their early meeting.
Easier said than done though, as Gary O’Neil’s side will be aiming for something more, a climb up the ladder from their current position of 11th compared to their match day rivals who sit 2 positions above them in 9th place.
The two sides currently have just 3 points separating the pair; a win for Wolves means the Midland team will step above Manchester United and claim their 9th position, shoving the Red Devils to 10th place on goal difference.
However, where the tie looks sweeter for the Red Devils is that a win edges them to 6th place, 8 points away from the top 4 after what would be match week 22.
All hope is not lost for a European spot finish this season for Erik ten Hag’s team whose players have welcomed themselves into all sorts of media narratives so far.
