Pre-match: Man Utd vs Wolves

After winning against Wolves in the Carling Cup  by the score of 3-2 on the 26th October, Manchester United will now be looking to win again in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday at 15:00GMT at Old Trafford. United will once again have Wayne Rooney missing, but if Chicharito continues to build on his excellent performances so far, then United fans will have nothing to worry about. Moreover, this is considered to be an easy game against a team in the 19th place which has only collected 9 points from the 10 matches played. Wolves have surprised everyone by beating Manchester City 2-1 in the last matchweek, and they will try to get one over the other team from Manchester.

An extra motivation for United will be the fact that Chelsea play Liverpool on Sunday, so momentarily until then, the gap between the 1st place and United would be closed down to just 2 points. If United win, they will be hoping that Chelsea lose on Sunday to get to enter back in the title race. This should be an easy victory for Manchester United is the team is in top form. The last time Wolves won against the Red Devils was in February of 1980, and the fact that the team has not kept a single clean sheet this season makes it even harder for Wolves player to find the required motivation. The probable line-up of United will see striking partners Berbatov and Chicharito up front, with Park, Fletcher, Carrick and Obertan in midfield, Rafael, Ferdinand, Vidic and Evra in defence and the club’s number one goalkeeper Van Der Sar guarding the post.
