In the first year of playing the Premier League, Wolves rose to become a phenomenon with an effective scientific way. Excellent wolves finish the 7th place, right after Man United and win the Europa League qualifier.

Under coach Nuno Santo, Wolves could be difficult for any opponent. Their strong point is that the state moves very quickly from defense to attack, with souls in the middle of Ruben Neves.

Wolves like to play pressing and 3-5-2 diagrams can be flexibly changed to 5-3-2 or 3-4-3 with extremely high organization. Therefore, the Central England team is always a thorn in the eyes of many "elders" Premier.

Actually, in the season 2018/19, Wolves beat Man United, Arsenal and Liverpool at home. Man City and Chelsea left Molineux with only 1 point.

Preparing for the new season, the Nuno Santo army gathered very early, destroying Newcastle and defeating City in friendly matches in Asia. They also easily bury Crusaders and Pyunik to advance to the Europa League playground.

On the other side of the front line, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team had a dream start, crushing Chelsea 4 goals without undoing. The Red Devils improved markedly, thanks to the excellence of two rookies Harry Maguire and Wan-Bissaka.

However, it is the Norwegian coach who admits Man United still has many points to improve, especially the ability to control the middle zone.

Pogba and McTominay were placed in the middle of the game, showing no restrictions. The French international regularly lost the ball. While McTominay was aggressive, there was a lack of rhythm, remote interception.
