Manchester United-Wolverhampton Preview

Looking to build on the foundation of a solid season-opening victory, Manchester United face an interesting challenge at Molineux on Monday, when a confident and in-form Wolverhampton side look to further their stellar start to the campaign.

United had some nervy moments to start their season last Sunday at Old Trafford facing Chelsea, with a poor clearance in the third minute leading to a Tammy Abraham shot that cannoned off the left post after it had beaten David De Gea. But a penalty earned by Anthony Martial led to a penalty converted by Marcus Rashford in the 18th minute, and those anxieties settled.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team would blow open the match in quick-fire succession in the second half, first through Martial in the 65th minute and Rashford completing his brace two minutes later. Summer signing and substitute Daniel James added a fourth nine minutes from time at the Stretford End, and while the 4-0 scoreline over Chelsea may have been flattering, the three points that came with it were deserved.
