Manchester United vs. Wolves: Premier League – Match Preview

Manchester United will look to build on a semi-revival when they host Wolves on Saturday.

United edged past Watford last weekend, thanks to first half goals from Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling.

In mid-week they thrashed Young Boys in Switzerland, with Paul Pogba scoring twice and assisting another.

Wolves were too good for Burnley last time out and probably should have won by more than a one goal margin.

Raul Jimenez scored the only goal, however Joe Hart made numerous saves for Burnley.
