Wolves V Manchester United – FA Cup Preview And Predicted XI Plus Betting Odds

 

Manchester United will be keen to bounce back from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first domestic defeat in charge when they play Wolves in the FA Cup on Saturday.

The Red Devils will be facing a team who were within seconds of winning away at Chelsea last weekend so this quarter-final could be a tight affair.

United’s injury list is beginning to clear up. Anthony Martial returned to the bench against Arsenal on Sunday, with Ander Herrera also expected to be fit for the Wolves game.

Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard’s recovery from hamstring injuries are progressing well, but they still are doubts for the weekend.

Captain Antonio Valencia (calf), Matteo Darmian (knock), Phil Jones (illness) and Alexis Sanchez (knee) remain out of contention, with Ashley Young also missing after picking up a suspension.

For Wolves, head coach Nuno Espirito Santo will welcome back defender Ryan Bennett who was suspended for the last two games against Burnley and Chelsea. The Midlands club have no injury concerns heading into the game at Molineux.

The bookmakers have made United slight favourites to make it to the semi-finals. They are 25/19 at Unibet to progress with a draw after 90 minutes best priced at 40/17 with 188BET. A Wolves victory is 9/4 at Betway.

Manchester United’s Predicted XI To Face Wolves:

De Gea, Dalot, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw, Herrera, McTominay, Pogba, Rashford, Lukaku, Martial

Wolves’ Predicted XI:

Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Jonny, Neves, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Jimenez, Diogo Jota

Predicted Score – 2-1 to United
