In an all-Premier League FA Cup replay on Wednesday night, Manchester United will look to book their spot in the fourth round of this year’s draw when they welcome Wolves to Old Trafford.
Although the Reds still might find themselves enduring what has been a rollercoaster campaign, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men really caught the eye in their 4-0 victory against Norwich over the weekend and are still dreaming of clinching a Champions League return.
On the flip side, having to settle for a point against an injury-struck Newcastle last time out, Wednesday’s guests have failed to win any of their last four matches across all competitions and have begun to show some signs of fatigue.
With the two sides playing out a 0-0 draw in the Midlands last week, you might be interested to know that United and Wolves have played out back-to-back stalemates and their last meeting at Old Trafford also finished with a 1-1 scoreline.
A similar outcome and Wednesday’s matchup to go to extra-time can be found pencilled in at 13/5 with Paddy Power.
Rashford steals the show
While Manchester United’s derby day hammering against their crosstown rivals may have had some around Old Trafford calling for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s departure, the former champions bounced back in some style over the weekend.
Picking up a 4-0 win over relegation scrappers Norwich, United still sit fifth in the Premier League standings and are dreaming of mounting a top-four charge this season.
One man who stole the show on Saturday and certainly someone to keep an eye out for in midweek will be the red-hot Marcus Rashford.
Bagging a brace against Norwich and putting in a Man of the Match display, the England international has continued on quite the purple patch after bagging 19 goals across all competitions so far.
Even more impressive, only England teammate Raheem Sterling (20) has more recorded more goals among Premier League players in this campaign.
You might be interested to know that the 22-year-old can be found priced at 13/10 with Ladbrokes to once again find the net on Wednesday night.
Wolves starting to stall
While Wolves may have managed to battle from behind to snatch a point off of an injury-riddled Newcastle at Molineux over the weekend, the Oranges missed a string of opportunities and have begun to show some recent worries.
With no Premier League outfit playing more than NunoEspírito Santo’s side, many around the Midlands have had growing concerns over fatigue setting into their camp.
Including a shock 2-1 defeat away at Watford on New Year’s Day, Wednesday’s guests have failed to win any of their last four appearances, their worst run of form since the start of September.
If Santo’s side are to make a much-needed return to winning ways at Old Trafford, there is no doubt that the traveling support will be hoping for leading marksman and reported United target Raul Jimenez to refined his goalscoring touch.
Failing to find the net in eight of his last 10 appearances, you might be interested to know that the former Benficastriker can be found at 15/8 with William Hill to find the net on the road in midweek.
