Wolves drew their opening league game of the season 0-0 with Leicester, while Manchester United thumped Chelsea 4-0.
Wolves were a revelation in the Premier League last season and took more points off the top-six than any other side outside the elite clubs.
Wolves were unbeaten in three matches against United last season and beat them twice in that time.
Fatigue could prove a slight issue for Wolves after playing in the Europa League on Thursday but they should more than fancy their chances of causing United problems on Monday tonight.
Wolves- Wolves were involved in Europa League action on Thursday but expect a much-changed team here to the side that faced Pyunik in midweek despite some impressive performances.
Nuno’s side started their Premier League campaign with a 0-0 draw with Leicester and are expected to go with much of the same side here. Bet Now on NaijaBet
Summer arrivals like Patrick Cutrone and Jesus Vallejo will not be rushed in the starting XI, meaning both will likely have to settle for a place on the bench on Monday night. Continue reading “Premier League Match Preview: Wolves vs Manchester United”
Brazil veteran Dani Alves scored the winning goal on his debut for Sao Paulo on Sunday, weeks after signing a three-year deal with the club.
Alves, 36, found the back of the net in the 40th minute to score the only goal of the game against Ceara.
Alves and Spanish international Juanfran, 34, are the stars for Sao Paulo, who snapped up both players after their contracts with European clubs expired.
Alves’ return to Brazil after 17 years playing for top clubs in Europe has had a big impact on his home country. Various betting options are available on NaijaBet
The right-back played for Sevilla before going on to play for Barcelona, Juventus and PSG, collecting nine national league titles along the way – six in Spain, one in Italy and two in France. Continue reading “Dani Alves scores the winner on his returns to Brazil debut”
Athletic Club have endured a mixed pre-season, ending a four-game winless run with a 2-1 victory over Mirandes in their last friendly before the start of the 2019/20 LaLiga campaign.
Athletic Club are unbeaten in their last 14 home games in the Spanish top-flight, a key reason why Gaizka Garitano’s take-over at the helm proved to be such a success last season.
Barcelona have picked up some momentum with four consecutive wins at the end of their pre-season preparations. After winning consecutive league titles, Barcelona will have their eyes on number four.
Athletic Bilbao- Gaizka Garitano is not expected to make any alterations to his usual style or system despite facing the reigning league champions on the opening day. Start forecasting your Weekend games Now

“I think we can get better, there are things I still want us to improve on in terms of how we play slightly, but I am really happy with the performance,” said Lampard after Chelsea held the European champions to a 2-2 draw after extra time, only to lose 5-4 in the shootout.
Chelsea took the lead in Istanbul through Olivier Giroud, but Sadio Mane’s equaliser meant the match at the home of Besiktas went to extra time.
The decisive moment came after nine successful spot-kicks when Tammy Abraham’s effort was saved by Adrian. Predict, Stake & Win Big
However, Chelsea were a match for Jurgen Klopp’s team for long spells and Lampard believed they were moving in the right direction after his first competitive game at the helm ended in a 4-0 defeat to Manchester United.

Liverpool started their season with a 4-1 win over Norwich on Friday, though they looked unusually vulnerable at the back. Now they have also lost first-choice goalkeeper Alisson for up to two months through injury.
Frank Lampard started life as Chelsea manager with a 4-0 defeat away to Manchester United and life doesn’t get any easier for the 41-year-old in midweek. Chelsea have also had two days fewer recovery for this match.
Chelsea have only lost one of their last six encounters with Liverpool but it would be a shock if they lifted the European Super Cup on Wednesday night.
Liverpool- Alisson has been ruled for a number of weeks with a calf injury sustained in Liverpool’s 4-1 win over Norwich on Friday. Summer signing Adrian will deputise.
Sadio Mane was only deemed fit enough for a place on the bench in Liverpool’s Premier League curtain-raiser but may come into the starting XI in midweek. Various betting options are available on NaijaBet
With Saturday’s league match with Southampton in mind, Jurgen Klopp is expected to rotate in defence and midfield. Continue reading “Super Cup Match Preview: Liverpool vs Chelsea”
Manchester United are unbeaten in their last six home league matches against Chelsea, though four of those games have ended in a draw.
Frank Lampard has already tasted victory at Old Trafford as a manager after his Derby side knocked United out of the League Cup last season.
Manchester United – Harry Maguire only signed for Manchester United at the start of the week but will make his full debut for the club on Sunday.
Fellow summer signings Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will also make competitive debuts for the Red Devils when they host top-six rivals Chelsea this weekend.
Anthony Martial was deployed as the central striker in pre-season and the Frenchman is expected to start through the middle here, with Marcus Rashford on the left. Mason Greenwood should feature from the bench. Various betting options are available on NaijaBet
Eric Bailly is a long-term absentee with a back injury, while Alexis Sanchez won’t be considered for the rest of the month following his late return from the 2019 Copa America. Paul Pogba missed United’s final pre-season game with a back problem but it would be a surprise if he didn’t start here. Continue reading “Premier League Match Preview: Manchester United vs Chelsea”
Liverpool will be keen to quickly move on from their Community Shield penalty shootout defeat to Manchester City on Sunday and lay down an early marker for the coming campaign in Friday’s Premier League curtain raiser.
The Reds are unbeaten in their last 10 league meetings with Norwich, winning eight, so they’ll be confident of coming away with all three points.
The Canaries may have come up as champions, but their lack of movements in the transfer window will be a concern to supporters. They did at least draw on their most recent visit to Anfield, holding Liverpool to a 1-1 draw in 2015, but are huge underdogs for this clash.
This should be a routine home win for Liverpool to start the season.
Liverpool- Nathaniel Clyne is ruled out for the home side after sustaining a serious knee injury in pre-season, though he was unlikely to have started anyway. Place bet on Live Matches 24/7 on Naijabet
Sadio Mane has only recently returned to the club following his AFCON duties with Senegal, while James Milner has a minor muscle complaint and will be assessed ahead of Friday’s match. Continue reading “Premier League Match Preview: Liverpool vs Norwich”

With the new Premier League season just around the corner, fans will be hoping that the club’s top performers and star players from each side are ready to hit the ground running as soon as they take to the turf.
But can we expect both sides to be firing on all cylinders come Sunday? Perhaps not. Despite no World Cup dominating our screens this summer, there have been a number of other elite international competitions taking place across the globe, including the Africa Cup of Nations, the Concacaf Gold Cup and Copa America.
Liverpool- they have welcomed back Xherdan Shaqiri and Naby Keita following their respective injury lay-offs, while the likes of Alisson, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have joined the club’s training camp in Evian.
Manchester City – There are no major injury issues concerning Guardiola, meanwhile, apart from long-term absentee Benjamin Mendy, while this weekend could see the introduction of Rodri, who has featured heavily throughout pre-season.
