Manchester United would understand the potential banana peel here and must prepare for Wolves accordingly. The Midlands side is safe and can’t be relegated anymore, but United could yet lose their Champions League ticket.
game like this is where you expect Manchester United to underline their ambition; it’s not going to be a successful season if they drop out of the top four.
Wolves did enough to attain the 40-point mark, and they can relax now, but who told you Julian Lopetegui doesn’t want more?
Wolves were at the foot of the log when the former La Roja manager took over, and look at them now.

A top-ten finish doesn’t seem realistic at this point, but every club tries to finish as high as they can.
Wolves can set up here as a spoiler; Manchester United must be wary.
Marcus Rashford is a big doubt for the visit of Wolves; the club’s highest goal scorer this season was said to be struggling with a significant injury by Erik Ten Hag in his pre-match presser.
Anthony Martial and the misfiring Wout Werghorst would deputise, but United must win.
Dropping points here wouldn’t only invite Liverpool to the party; it would also take the advantage off United in terms of momentum despite having a game in hand.
Only a win would get Liverpool off the back of the Red Devils; anything short of that is unacceptable.
United lost at Brighton with the last kick of the game.
Luke Shaw conceded a last-minute penalty with a trailing hand in the air, which Alexis MacAllister converted.
David De Gea fumbled badly at West Ham to concede from a tame shot; who would be the culprit against Wolves?
There’s danger waiting to happen against a team that has nothing to lose.
Wolves is fine, they’re coming to enjoy football and the Old Trafford turf.
Manchester United must own the conversation from the blast of the whistle.
