Wolverhampton Wanderers will look to pick up their first league win of the season when they host Manchester United on Sunday.

Wolves have started the season with consecutive 1-0 defeats in the Premier League against Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur but did pick up an impressive 4-0 win at Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup in the week.

Meanwhile United have managed to secure 4 points from their opening fixtures after thrashing Leeds United 5-1 and coming from behind to salvage a point at Southampton last weekend.

Ahead of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's visit to Molineux this weekend, VAVEL take a look at some of the memorable encounters between both teams over time.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 Manchester United, 17th January 2004

Back in 2004, the Wanderers endured a fantastic victory against top of the table at the time United in the campaign that Wolves ended up getting relegated in.

Kenny Miller's first goal for the club in the 67th minute proved to be enough to secure a surprising three points for the hosts in what turned out to be a joyous and memorable day for Wolves fans.

What made the win even more special was the fact that in the previous transfer window, Dave Jones' side had only spent £3.75 million compared to the Red Devils who had splashed out on £56 million worth of players, adding to the array of talent that they already had within their ranks at the time.

Therefore a Wolves win looked almost off the cards, but despite dominating the majority of possession Alex Ferguson's side failed to test out goalkeeper Michael Oakes on too many occasions as the home side managed to see out a brilliant win- their first against United since 1980.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 Manchester United, 5th February 2011

During the 2010/11 season Wolves came from behind to end Manchester United's 29 match unbeaten run at Molinuex.

Nani handed the visitors an early lead when he drilled the ball home after turning George Elokobi inside out.

The defender did though make up for this after he levelled affairs seven minute later when he latched on to the end of a Matt Jarvis cross.

The comeback was then completed five minutes before the interval as Kevin Doyle nodded home from a Nenad Miljas set piece.

After that United struggled to muster up too many clear cut opportunities as once again Wolves hung on to all three points moving them two points away from safety.

The last time Wolves experienced a win against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's outfit was over two years ago now when they once again came from behind to salvage a 2-1 win.

A Scott McTominay drive from range just before the quarter of an hour broke the deadlock for the visitors before it was cancelled out by a Diogo Jota effort, after he linked up well with Raul Jimenez.

Not long before the hour mark Ashely Young was dismissed for a second bookable offence, and with a man less on the field Wolves used it to their advantage when a mix up between David De Gea and Chris Smalling led to the latter seeing the ball ricochet off him and into his own net.

This ended up being enough to ensure that Nuno Espirito Santo's remain unbeaten against United that season and it allowed Wolves to stay in seventh position in what turned out to be a very impressive first season back in the Premier League for the Black Country club.
