Chances were at a premium when these two met in a goalless draw at Molineux but don’t expect another goal drought in front of the TV cameras at Old Trafford.

The scoring trends for these two sides have been strong for the vast majority of the season.

Wolves top the Premier League’s both-teams-to-score stats with 77% of their games having seen both sides find the net.

They have failed to score in just two of their league games – only Liverpool and Manchester City have a better record.

As for United, they’ve scored in every game (all competitions) at Old Trafford this season so it’s something of a surprise to see bet365 offering 10/11 each of two about the outcomes in this market.

With four of the sides’ five meetings over the last 15 months having delivered the BTTS bet, that option has to be backed.

A possible setback is a potential rest for Marcus Rashford – United are at Anfield on Sunday. He had a niggle after Saturday’s 4-0 win over Norwich. Ashley Young is definitely out, while Luke Shaw and Jesse Lingard are also doubts.

As for Wolves, they are likely to be without Diogo Jota again, while Patrick Cutrone left the club this week to join Fiorentina on loan. That does, however, make it more likely top scorer Raul Jimenez will start.

Wolves have potential at 14/5 but it is also worth considering their record of coming from behind to earn results – they’ve won a league-high 15 points from such situations this season.

They fought back to earn a draw at Old Trafford last season (as they did at Molineux this season), while in the reverse fixture they won 2-1 having conceded first.

Paddy Power go 6/1 about Wolves coming from behind to draw (something they’ve managed in nine of 22 league games), while bet365 go 14s about them winning from a losing position.

Manchester United v Wolverhampton Wanderers

    Manchester United 1-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers - Match Report

    Juan Mata scored the only goal of the game as Manchester United defeated Wolves 1-0 in their FA Cup third-round replay at Old Trafford.

    United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made just three changes to the side that beat Norwich 4-0 on Saturday as Mason Greenwood, Dan James and goalkeeper Sergio Romero replaced Marcus Rashford Andreas Pereira and David De Gea.

    Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo also named a strong team as he opted to make just one change from the 1-1 draw with Newcastle on Saturday, as John Ruddy replaced Rui Patricio in goal.

    United went into the game without a win against Wolves in their last five meetings and they thought the visitors were on course to make it six when Neto scored in the 10th minute.

    Fred’s sloppy cross-field pass was cut out by Wolves and Neto was on hand to finish past Romero only for the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to disallow the goal after it was deemed that Raul Jimenez handled the ball in the build-up.

    Both sides showed attacking intent without carving out a clear-cut chance until 29 minutes when a diagonal strike from Mata was well saved by Ruddy.

    Wolves responded a minute later when Gary Doherty got his head to a Ruben Neves cross from a short corner and directed his effort onto the post, although the offside flag was raised against him.

    Jimenez then got on the end of Adama Traore’s cross from the left, but his subsequent header was straight down the throat of Roberto.

    Ruddy was called into action for Wolves on 42 minutes as he reacted smartly to deny James an opening goal of the game following good work by Fred.

    United had the first chance of the second half on 52 minutes when James was released down the left by Brandon Williams and he got away from Doherty before hitting a low shot across Ruddy and just wide of the far post.

    It was no surprise when the hosts broke the deadlock on 67 minutes as Mata timed his run to perfection to get on the end of Anthony Martial’s pass and then dinked the ball over the onrushing Ruddy.

    There was one sour note for the Red Devils when Rashford, who had come off the substitutes’ bench on 63 minutes, was forced off 10 minutes from time with what looked like a lower back injury which could rule him out of the weekend’s trip to Liverpool.

    Wolves pressed for an equaliser to take the tie to extra-time, but United held on and will travel to face the winners of the replay between Tranmere Rovers and Watford in the fourth round on January 26.
