A regular fixture in the top flight of English football prior to the arrival of the Premier League, United and Wolves have met over 100 times in all competitions. In fact, our first encounter with the Black Country club, which came in 1892, resulted in a 10-1 win for United – our joint largest winning margin. In the Premier League, United have found Molineux a tough place to visit, and we’ve won just two of our five visits, losing the other three. We did, however, enjoy our 2012 trip to Wolves, winning 5-0 thanks to goals from Jonny Evans, Antonio Valencia, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez (2).
After clinching the Championship title with 99 points to earn promotion, expectations around the Black Country were high ahead of the club’s first top-flight campaign in seven years, and they did not disappoint. New signings Raul Jimenez, goalkeeper Rui Patricio and midfielder Joao Moutinho arrived to bolster a squad that already boasted top Portuguese talents Ruben Neves and Diogo Jota, as Nuno Espirito Santo's side set their sights on the upper echelons of the Premier League table. Molineux proved to be a tricky place to go for the teams in the top six, and the Midlanders managed victories against Chelsea, Arsenal and United. That home form, complemented with impressive displays away to teams like Tottenham, ensured that Wolves achieved a seventh-place finish and a spot in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League. They also shone in the FA Cup – beating Liverpool and United in the Midlands – and were just seconds from reaching Wembley, before a Troy Deeney equaliser and an extra-time winner from Gerard Deulofeu helped Watford into the final.
