WOL Vs MUN Dream11 Prediction: Wolverhampton look to down a struggling and waning Manchester United today.
Note: We have made changes to our Dream11 team after the lineups were announced.
OUT: R Jimenez, M Rashford
IN: A Traore Diarra, J Mata
In a howler of a season, the only thing which offered Manchester United any kind of solace was the fact that they had fared off reasonably well against the top 6 teams. However, the side’s last bit of comfort was snatched away from them the last time around after they were ripped into and blown apart by Arsenal.
The 2-0 defeat was a calamitous one not only owing to the result but rather the manner it came about in. Manchester United were thoroughly outplayed in every department of the game by Arsenal, a contest which blatantly exposed how laggard and lacklustre Manchester United have been this season.
And it’s something this Wolverhampton side will be looking to capitalise on as they look to send Manchester United packing out of the FA Cup for the second season in a row. They had defeated them 2-1 in the quarter-finals in the previous edition and will be looking to emulate that rousing performance as they look to assert their identity as one of the most progressive sides in the footballing fraternity.
Wolverhampton have hit a block at the moment with two defeats in a row in the Premier League but the side will be buoyed for this encounter. In Manchester United, they are up against a side who are set to falter immensely in defence, a team Wolverhampton will find relatively easy to rake up the goals against.

Dream 11 Picks
If Manchester United are to have any chance of keeping Wolverhampton away from their goal, they’ll need to rely on their goal-keeper to pull off a sublime display. And with Sergio Romero set to be in between the sticks for this one, he will be parrying away a good amount of shots even if not keeping a cleansheet to his name to see us move in with him for the day.
Right Wingback Matt Doherty has not endured the same judicious season as the last term when it comes to attacking displays but his goal against Manchester City showed that his penchant for the goal hasn’t reduced one bit. He’s someone who loves walloping down the park, a name extremely likely to come up with a goal on the day to see us move in with him for this one.
We are also brining in Roman Saiss for the encounter with the player being reminiscent to Doherty in his attacking plays with club captain Connor Coady completing the trio of selection from the side. Elsewhere, from Manchester United we have opted for the lone pick with the attackingly inclined Brandon Williams being picked up owing to his willingness to provide wide attacking support to his counterparts.
When we had begun this docket of our side, there were two players we had to choose from Wolverhampton. Both Ruben Neves and Jao Moutinho have been sharing freekick and corner roles for the side recently but what separated Neves was his affinity to send down scorchers from a good distance to see his goal threat make him our pick here.
He will be accompanied by Pedro Neto from the side after the player came up with his first goal for the side against Watford while from Manchester United we are moving in with Daniel James. He looks likely to retain his place in the side given his importance to the team this season which has seen him tally up the 4 goals and 6 assists.
Juan Mata was another player considered by us especially after hs good display against Arsenal but he’s not been favoured much this season and hi uncertain involvement sees us keep him out.
Although both the sides are likely to shuffle around with their teams after emerging from a hectic and congested, we just couldn’t do without the leading goal scorers from either side here. We begin with Raul Jimenez, a player who with 8 goals and 6 assists this term has once against affirmed why he’s the mainstay of his side’s attacking travails.
Elsewhere, with the 12 goals and 5 assists, Marcus Rashford is brought in by us from Manchester United along with Mason Greenwood who has found the 9 goals and 1 assist to go with them.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Jimenez comes out to captain our side for the day while Doherty is our vice-captain.
