Manchester United seem to be the favorites going as we look at the best predicted starting lineup and key details for their match vs Wolverhampton Wanderers for EPL 2022. 

The FIFA World Cup 2022 break seems to have had a good effect on Manchester United and Wolverhampton as both began their post World Cup campaign with a win. However, Premier League the points table for both the teams is showing contrasting figures.

While Wolves have just won 3 games this season and are presently 18th in the table, Manchester United have won 9 games and are at 5th position in the table at present. Without a saying, both would want to continue their winning momentum to make sure they end 2022 on a high. 

The wolves will be playing at home and will want to win this game to make sure they are safe from the relegation zone. Manager Julen Lopetegui will be hoping Daniel Podence is fit for the game and play alongside Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Adama Traore.

Manchester United, on the other hand have moved on from the CR7 saga and looked in great form in the previous game. Both Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are scoring and the midfield trio of Caremiro, Eriksen and Bruno is able to control the game beautifully.

This will be an exciting game that can go either side, and it will be really interesting to watch Ruben Neves play against his Portugal teammate Bruno Fernandez in the midfield. So, as we wait for the match to begin, let’s look at the best predicted starting lineup for Manchester United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers match for EPL 2022. 


These two teams have won 1 game each in the last 2 games. However looking at the form, Manchester United seems to have an edge going into this game. This does not mean that the Wolves are to be taken lightly given that they will want to win this game on their home turf.
