We have a huge game from the Premier League to finish off the weekend action, and at 3pm ET on Monday fans will have eyes on Molineux as Wolverhampton Wanderers take on Manchester United.

Full Time Result

This is a very interesting game as many pundits have tipped Wolves as one of the teams who could push into the top six this season and this should be a barometer who whether they can achieve that.

Wolves will have felt very hard done by last week when VAR cost them all three points in a cagey match against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester v Wolves VAR Decision

The crucial moment was in the second half of the match when Joao Moutinho's corner hit the arm of Wolves' Willy Boly at close range before Leo Dendoncker shot the rebound past Kasper Schmeichel, no one in the stadium suspected any wrongdoing at all but after one minute and 38 seconds the goal was disallowed by on-field official Andre Marriner to the surprise of almost everybody.

One of the trickiest problems that Nuno Santo’s team will have this season is balancing the Europa League with the Premier League, he played numerous first-team players on Thursday night in the 4-0 victory over Yerevan and recovery time for games like this is very important.

Patrick Cutrone may start this match, he was an £18m summer signing from AC Milan and is expected to do big things in the Premier League this season.

It was a terrific start for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as his team cruised to a 4-0 victory on the opening day of the season against Chelsea, the United side had the youngest average age in the Premier League and after the style of soccer played optimism is awash again at the club.

Total Match Goals

Marcus Rashford scored twice, either side of goal from Anthony Martial and the attack looked far more streamlined after the sale of Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan, then to cap off a perfect day, substitute Daniel James completed the scoring with a goal on his debut nine minutes from time.

Harry Maguire

A lot of eyebrows were raised when Manchester United paid over $100million for Harry Maguire but he settled into the backline perfectly and was voted Man of the Match for his performance.

A lot of questions still remain over the direction the club going in but it couldn’t have been a better start and we’ll learn even more about them in this game, expect a similar team for them this contest out but Daniel James could come in for a start, the manager has stressed an emphasis for his team t play attacking football with pace.

For the first time in quite a while last week, there was an aura of energy and excitement around Old Trafford as they watched a young team play fearless soccer, something that has been absent from this club for a few years.

Wolves have had a tricky start to the season and with the games coming thick and fast on all fronts the last thing they may want to play now is a confident team full of running, back United to come away with a victory and for the optimism to continue on the red side of Manchester.
