Manchester United got their 2023/24 Premier League campaign off to a winning start despite a poor performance at Old Trafford against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The visitors were the better side for most of the game with Matheus Nunes and Matheus Cunha finding lots of joy with runs through midfield but the midlands side lacked quality in front of goal. Debutant Andre Onana impressed for the hosts and made a number of saves in the second half to keep them ahead.
But, it was Raphael Varane who provided the difference. Jadon Sancho won a corner that was initially cleared. Varane stayed up the pitch and when Bruno Fernandes chipped it back into the box he was on hand to meet Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s pass and head home the winner.
Kickoff from Old Trafford is set for 3 p.m. ET.

Why you should back Manchester United
The Red Devils have dominated this series in recent years. In fact, Manchester United have won five of their last six meetings against Wolves. United have also recorded a clean sheet in three of their last four matches against Wolverhampton.
Manchester United features a plethora of playmakers who are capable of leading the team to victory at Old Trafford on Monday. Marcus Rashford finished last season as the leading goal scorer, recording 17 goals in 35 league games. He also added five assists. Midfielder Bruno Fernandes remains the catalyst for this Manchester United side. The central midfielder racked up eight goals and eight assists in league play last season.

Why you should back Wolverhampton
Wolverhampton will look to put last season’s struggles behind them when they take the field on Monday. Wolves were winless in their final eight Premier League games on the road in the 2022-23 season. Wolverhampton finished 13th in the EPL standings a season ago with an 11-8-19 record.
Things are off to a rocky start for Wolverhampton after the club replaced manager Julen Lopetegui with former Bournemouth boss Gary O’Neil just last week. However, the managerial sacking could provide a spark for this Wolverhampton side with players looking to make a good impression on the new manager. With mainstays like Ruben Neves, Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore leaving this summer, there are ample opportunities for players to make a statement and cement themselves in the starting lineup.
