Wolves vs Man Utd Match Details
Wolves vs Man Utd kicks-off at 5.30pm on Saturday 4 January at the Molineux Stadium. The match will be broadcast on BT Sport.
The bookies make Wolves a 25/1 shot to lift the 2019/20 FA Cup and that looks a fair price considering they made it to the semi-finals last year. They currently occupy seventh-position in the Premier League table, the same position they finished last season in.
Last season they knocked out Liverpool in the third round, Shrewsbury in the fourth round, and Bristol City in the fifth round before beating Man Utd 2-1 at Molineux in the quarterfinals.
Wolves then looked in complete control in the semifinals against Watford, leading 2-0 until Watford rallied late to score in the 79th and 94th minutes to force extra time. Watford then scored the winner in the 104th minute to end Wolves’ Wembley dream.
Wolves come into this match on the back of away defeats to Watford and Liverpool, but only Tottenham and Chelsea have won at Molineux this season.
Man Utd Form
Man Utd were in a glorious run of form under Ole Gunner Solskjaer at this stage last season, and they started last season’s FA Cup run with a comfortable 2-0 win over Reading before beating Arsenal and Chelsea away from home in the fourth and fifth rounds. But that run came to an end at the hands of Wolves in the quarterfinals.
The Red Devils have shown they have what it takes to beat the likes of Manchester City away from home recently, but they’ve also lost two of their last three Premier League away games against Watford and Arsenal.
Wolves vs Man Utd Head-To-Heads
Wolves and Man Utd have already played each other at Molineux this season. The game ended 1-1 with Neves scoring in the second half for Wolves to cancel out a first-half goal by Antony Martial.
Wolves won their home fixture 2-1 against United last season in April, despite United again taking the lead.
Wolves also won last year’s FA Cup tie in March 2-1, but went 2-0 up on that occasion before Rashford pulled a goal back in injury time. Wolves also came from a goal behind to draw 1-1 at Old Trafford last season.
