The 77 Club: Why Wolves have no fear against Manchester United
Tonight Wolves face their favourite rivals of late, Manchester United at the Molineux as they will look to embarrass Ole Gunnar Solskjær once more on their home turf.
Last season Wolves claimed victory over United three times in the space of just one season. Despite United’s 4-0 victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford on the opening weekend of the season, will the home side take inspiration from their Europa League victories against FC Pyunik as they look to claim all three points?
It is safe to say that the Reds have lost their “fear factor” against Wolves thanks to recent results, and this paired with the fact that manager Nuno Espirito Santo and his side seem to always perform well against the top six means that Wolves will be hungry for goals.
One Wolves fan who is looking forward to the fixture is Sam Cook, from our fan partner The 77 Club, who believes that his side will come out of the game victorious.
“I don’t think Wolves fear Manchester United anymore – and we always turn up against the so-called ‘better sides'”, Sam said.
There is even more incentive for Wolves to get a win tonight, as it would make it the first time since November 1980 that the side would achieve three consecutive top-flight fixtures at Molineux.
There has been a lot of focus this season on Wolves and their European campaign with many fearing the worst, expecting the pressures of the additional fixtures to affect the team like it did to Burnley last season. However, after back-to-back wins against FC Pyunik and a 6,000 mile round trip, Sam believes that if anything this will help his side.
He said: “The European football – at this stage of the season – should give us a bit of an edge.
“Even though the opposition hasn’t been of Premier League in the Europa League, competitive football is competitive football”
Sam also has faith in his manager, who made nine changes to the side that faced FC Pyunik last week, meaning that although strikers Pedro Neto and Patrick Cutrone performed well last Thursday, the likes of Raul Jimenez, Diogo Jota, and Rui Patricio will surely be recalled for tonight’s game.

Sam said: “Nuno rang the changes at home to FC Pyunik last Thursday – so I’d expect a strong line up for this one.”
It is safe to say that since returning to the Premier League Wolves have certainly made an impact, and under Nuno this team seems to get stronger each season.
They have proven that they can make life uncomfortable for pretty much any team thanks to their speed and counter-attacking movement up the pitch. Whilst Manchester United succumbed to their abilities last season: will they be more aware this season, or will Wolves triumph yet again?
