United’s Teenage Surprise

After ending their 10-game winning streak on the road with a draw against Leicester United, United’s teenage surprise is about to take effect as the Red Devils are expected to unleash a squad of teenagers against Wolves Tonight. Manchester United are currently sitting at the fourth position on the league table, and they’ll be hoping to take the win for a chance at the second position. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has already hinted that he’ll continue to start Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford, and Bruno Fernandes while facing Wolves at Old Trafford.

United are hoping to advance their unbeaten EPL run to nine games while putting them at the second position. Solkjaer has suggested that he’ll use his team’s depth against Wolves, considering their quick turnaround in games as seen in their boxing day 2-2 draw against Leicester. The manager also hinted that several players are too important to take a rest, considering their dire need for a win at this point.

Of course, the players will need to rest at a certain point, but, at this time, manager Solkjaer believes he needs his strongest teams to secure a place in the top three. Solkjaer also added that playing while a little tired helps the player improve and develop resilience. That’s why the best teams don’t rotate a lot, and the best players also don’t need much rotation.

As suggested, Soskjaer’s rotation during the game might be minimal, considering that United have rested more than Wolves. That inspires the confidence of punters enjoying sports betting with Betway, although Nuno Espirito’s side might repeat their Sunday performance which saw them draw 1-1 against Tottenham. However, the players might be affected by fatigue.

On the other hand, Manchester United will try to ride over their frustrations after a late equalizer took away their well-deserved win at Leicester. The Red Devils took the lead twice with Bruno Fernandez and Marcus Rashford scoring, but a late strike from Jamie Vardy ended the match 2-2. That made United miss the chance to leapfrog Foxes by taking the second spot on the league table.

When asked if he has more options on his squad now, Manager Solskjaer said the team is getting used to the situation, and they’re becoming more robust and physically ready to play with a few days of rest in between games. The 30-hour advantage that Manchester United has over Wolves is expected to give them a slight edge and hence a crucial factor for Betway sports punters.

Solskjaer might also start Edison Cavani, who has scored as many goals as Martial, although he hasn’t started for nine United games this season. Lindelof might play as a center-back or full-back after nursing a back injury for over a year. To many fans, Lindelof is the team’s lucky charm, having lost three out of four games that he sat out at the beginning of last season. Additionally, Solsjkaer might have to put De Gea at the post, as he might not afford to bench Henderson while playing against City next week.
