Manchester United are odds on the win the match and that is a price I don’t like, I believe all the value lays with Wolves. If you look at the predicted line-ups, you wouldn’t be a fool for thinking that Wolves are the stronger side with the better quality of players overall.
Wolves are actually unbeaten in their last five meetings with Manchester United, and if you remember, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men knocked United out of this competition in the quarter-finals back in March last year. Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota provided the goals in a 2-1 win.
Both teams to score looks to be a good selection for this match. Both teams have found the net in eight of the last ten meetings between Manchester United and Wolves. United have scored in their last 21 home matches in succession, so I think they will keep that run going. Both teams to score has been a winning pick in 12 of Wolves’ last 15 matches away from home in all competitions.
This corner selection is a good one. In the Premier League, Wolves average just over ten corners per game whereas Man United average 9.64. In the goalless draw at Molineux which led to this replay, there were 13 corners taken between the two.
Raul Jimenez is having a great goalscoring season, the Mexican forward has scored 17 goals in 34 appearances in all competitions which is a goal every other game. Jimenez scored in the FA Cup meeting between these two last season when Wolves dumped United out of the competition in the quarter-finals.
