With 32 games played each, Wolverhampton and Manchester United sit level on 52 points.
As of now, United holds the edge on goal difference by a nine-goal margin. Barring some blowouts, it’s likely they would get the spot over Wolves if the two sides see identical results to finish the season.
Both teams are in pursuit of the final Champions League spot. With six games left to play for both sides, we compare their respective schedules in the final portion. With how close the teams sit, neither side can afford to drop points. Both teams came back from the restart in great form, and it’s not a stretch to assume either could win all out to close the season.
Starting with Wolves, they’ve looked a worthy side for the final spot since the restart. They have won all three games since coming back, and five of six going back to March. Compare that to when they could only win five of their first 17 games, Wolves looks a new side as of late.
Bruno Fernandes has eight goal involvements in his first eight #PL matches for Man Utd (five goals & three assists)

Unfortunately for them, they have a tougher schedule on paper. While you would favor them in most fixtures, they are not gimmicks and Wolves failed to win the reverse fixture against any of the six upcoming teams.
