Manchester United vs. Wolves: Premier League – Match Preview

Manchester United will look to continue their good run of form when they welcome Wolves to Old Trafford on Tuesday evening.

United twice led at home to Leicester City on Saturday, however the hosts rallied to earn a decent point.

Bruno Fernandes was again heavily involved with a goal and an assist, but Axel Tuanzebe’s late own goal meant their record away run came to an end.

Wolves scored late themselves to earn a point, as Romain Saiss’ header cancelled out Tanguy Ndombele’s opener against Spurs.

They have struggled for goals since Raul Jimenez’s injury, however despite sitting 11th, are within just six points of a Champions League spot.

Team news
Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are both injury doubts for the hosts, meaning Tuanzebe and Eric Bailly could continue.

Marcus Rashford may be rotated as he continues to struggle with an ongoing shoulder issue.

Rayan Ait-Nouri could come in for Marcal at left-back in the probable only change for Wolves.

Leander Dendoncker and Willy Boly will be assessed, however given the short turn around may not be risked.

Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Tuanzebe, Bailly, Maguire, Telles; Matic, Pogba; Greenwood, Fernandes, Martial; Cavani
Wolves (4-2-3-1): Patricio; Semedo, Coady, Saiss, Ait-Nouri; Neves, Moutinho; Traore, Podence, Neto; Silva
