Alan Shearer suggested that Manchester United will have a very tough evening ahead of them against Wolves at Molineux tonight, when writing his regular column for The Sun.

The Black Country outfit were in fine form upon their return to the Premier League last season and ended up finishing in seventh spot in the table.


Wolves will have their work cut out if they are to better that this term, however, with Europa League football to contend with as well.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side welcome United to Molineux tonight, and Shearer highlighted just how much of an influence the Molineux crowd can have on visiting teams, when writing his regular column for The Sun:

"Wolves at Molineux tonight is going to be a very tough test for them. When that crowd gets going, Wolves make life very, very difficult for visiting teams."

Nuno Nuno Espirito Santo the head coach

The Black Country side lost only five Premier League games at Molineux last term, and they are always an incredibly hard side to play against away from home.

Wolves were unlucky not to beat Leicester on the opening day of the season, whilst United won comfortably 4-0 against Chelsea.

Both sides will want to win the game, so it should be a very entertaining match of football on display at Molineux tonight.

Nuno Espirito Santo the manager
