Bet on Man Utd vs Wolves – Flu epidemic hits United’s midfield
Jonny Evans, Anderson, Darron Gibson, Frederico Macheda and Sir Alex Ferguson have all been hit by a flu virus, and it seems only Ferguson is likely to be at Old Trafford for the match with Wolves on Saturday.
Mick McCarthy has no injury worries to contend with as he takes his side to a ground that they are yet to emerge victorious from in the Premier League.
A match that took place just over a week ago would usually give you a good idea of the outcome of the form of two sides, but the Carling Cup tie featured players from both Man Utd and Wolves second string and a repeat of the 3-2 scoreline is unlikely.
Man Utd are 1/5 to beat Wolves but are suffering from a midfield crisis thanks to the flu epidemic and Nani’s groin strain, however Darren Fletcher should be fit and will likely partner Michael Carrick who has featured in six matches in a row, the last five ending in wins.
Wolves are 12/1 to beat United but their results at Old Trafford in the Premier League suggest that Man Utd should win to nil.
After being left out of the side that played against Bursaspor in midweek, Javier Hernandez will be eager to get back onto the pitch and Man Utd’s star of the moment is 4/5 to score any time.
In the last 10 games, Man Utd have either scored one goal, three goals or no goals against Wolves and a 1-0 score line and a 3-0 score line are both priced at 6/1.
Wolves have scored just three times on their league travels this season and a Man Utd clean sheet will be wanted by Ferguson – they are 4/6 to do so.
Wolves are 16/1 to win 1-0 like they did back in 1980. See the full Manchester Utd vs Wolves betting odds here.
