Wolverhampton Wanderers

Last updated: Mon 19 August 2019 08:48
In Brief

Very solid defending in season-opener. Cruised in Europa League on Thursday and players should be fresh. At full strength.

Looking Back

Wolves looked rock solid at the back on visit to Leicester last weekend and despite not scoring themselves Santo’s men very good value for prestigious 0:0 draw.

Kept 2 clean sheets in 2 Europa League tests vs. Pyunik too, aggregate score 8:0, with mainly reserves involved in 4:0 home win on Thursday.

Last season better side in all 3 matches vs. Man United – 1:1 draw at Old Trafford and similar 2:1 home wins in league and FA Cup.

Looking Ahead

Coach Santo hasn’t changed formation or personnel much this summer, with pretty much all of those expected to start already at club last season.

Manager enjoying clean bill of health.

Points of Interest

Last season had the best record of ALL English sides against the Big 6!

Manchester United

In Brief

Big win, but far from solid display, in season-opener. Clean sheet most pleasing thing. Bailly and Fosu-Mensah long-term absentees. Darmian and Sanchez lack fitness.

Looking Back

United flattered by 4:0 scoreline in win vs. Chelsea, with luck helping Red Devils several times in this game. However, keeping clean sheet was major achievement.

Martial led attack well and also constant interchanging with Rashford worked, with same duo expected to carry main burden up front all season.

Looking Ahead

Coach Solskjaer very unlikely to touch his starting XI, but even he is worried how his suited for fast breaks forwards will cope with teams that sit deep on them. Urging more frequent interchanging of positions likely.

No major absentees with 2 sidelined defenders not expected to see lots of playing time anyway, plus lacking fitness Darmian and Sanchez also not major contributors.

Points of Interest

Fred had just 1 goal and 1 assist in the Premier League last season, with both of them coming in the 2 matches vs. Wolverhampton.
