Former Liverpool star makes bold prediction for Wolves against Man United clash

BBC football pundit Mark Lawrenson is backing Premier League giants Manchester United to secure a 2-0 victory over their opponent Wolves in the English Premier League on Tuesday.

Lawrenson is backing them to secure a 2-0 win over the seventh-placed team in the League tonight.

United head into the tie looking to make it consecutive victories since Norwegian tactician Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was named the club’s new head coach permanently last week.

The Red Devils up their push for a Premier League top-four finish by claiming a 2-1 victory Watford at home on Saturday.

North London giants Arsenal moved above United and into the third position on the Premier League log with a 2-0 victory over Newcastle United at home on Monday evening.

The 20-time English League champions can move to third position if they are able to successfully defeat Wolves on Tuesday evening away from home.

And ex-Liverpool star Mark Lawrenson is tipping United to do exactly that as they look to keep up with their march towards a Premier League top-four finish this term.

The English giants are attempting to at least finish in the Premier League top four this term as they eye UEFA Champions League place.

The Red Devils will take on la Liga giants Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League last-8 later in the month.

In the same vein, Ole’s team appear to be in luck as midfield sensation Thomas Partey, their perfect replacement for Spaniard Ander Herrera, is interested in a potential move to Old Trafford.

The La Liga star, who reportedly has a €50million buyout clause at Atletico Madrid, is thought to be on Solskjaer’s transfer wishlist of summer transfer targets, and the intent for a deal is equally mutual, according to reports.

Partey, 25, has shown himself to be one of the finest defensive midfielders in Europe for some period now and appears a perfect fit for the Premier League style of football.
