How we expect Man Utd to line up against Wolves


United kicked off the Premier League season with a 5-1 rout of Leeds, but some of the optimism for the new campaign dissipated as they came unstuck with a disappointing 1-1 draw at Southampton.

The Red Devils looked disjointed in that clash on the south coast, though neither Raphael Varane nor Jadon Sancho have started a game for their new club yet – but that could change this afternoon.

Both Sancho and Varane are pushing for a role in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s lineup for the trip to Wolves, though United will be without midfielder Scott McTominay.

The Scotland international underwent groin surgery earlier this week and joins goalkeeper Dean Henderson (recovering from coronavirus), full-back Alex Telles (ankle) and striker Marcus Rashford (shoulder), as well as long-term absentee Phil Jones (knee), on the sidelines.

With Edinson Cavani still lacking match fitness and Anthony Martial unimpressive leading the line last time out, it is likely Mason Greenwood will play up front with Sancho, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes in support.

Man Utd predicted XI (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, Matic; Sancho, Fernandes, Pogba; Greenwood.

Sunday, 4.30pm BST, Sky Sports

Out: McTominay (groin), Rashford (shoulder), Telles (ankle), Jones (knee), Henderson (fatigue)
