    Wolves will travel to Old Trafford on Wednesday for an FA Cup third-round replay against Manchester United.

    The two teams played out a dull goalless draw at Molineux earlier in the month, setting up an unwanted reverse tie in an already busy fixture schedule for both sides.

    Both Man Utd and Wolves had plenty of chances to score in the first game. Both sides registered 12 shots, but only two found the target.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men come into this game on the back of a 4-0 hammering over Norwich City. Marcus Rashford scored twice, while there were also goals from Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood.

    A 3-1 defeat to rivals Manchester City in midweek offered a stark reminder of where the club is at right now, but United did well to bounce back against Norwich.

    The Red Devils remain fifth in the Premier League table after losing just two of their last eleven top-flight matches.

    On the other hand, Wolves find themselves three points behind Man Utd in seventh place following a run of three league games without a win.

    Despite dominating large spells in their previous game, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw with Newcastle.

    Still, Wolves will be encouraged by the fact that Man Utd have failed to win any of the last five meetings between the two teams in all competitions.

    With that being said, Wolves are without a win in their last ten visits to Old Trafford, so Santo’s men will be desperate to buck that trend.

    Wolves will be without forward Diogo Jota and defender Willy Boly for the tip to Manchester. However, Boly is close to making a return to first-team action following a lengthy layoff.

    As for United, Paul Pogba, Luke Shaw, and Scott McTominay are all still injured, while the likes of Rashford and Martial are likely to be rested.

    18-year-old Mason Greenwood is expected to lead the line for Solskjaer’s side, while Jesse Lingard is likely to be restored to the starting lineup.

    It’s set to be another tight game between the two teams. Neither manager will field a full-strength side, but both will be looking to remain competitive.

    Forebet predicts that the score will be level after 90 minutes. The game looks set to go the distance and could be decided on penalties.
