United were forced to settle for a point against Leicester on Boxing Day as Axel Tuanzebe’s late own goal earned the Foxes a point.
That result stretched Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side’s unbeaten run to eight games in the league, stretching back to their 1-0 loss to Arsenal on November 1.
Much like Leicester, Wolves needed a late leveller to earn a draw in their last game, Romain Saiss’ header securing a 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Molineux.
Manchester United vs Wolves is scheduled for an 8pm kick-off on Tuesday, December 29, 2020.
The game will be played behind closed doors at Old Trafford because of current coronavirus restrictions.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks set to be without Aaron Wan-Bissaka again and with Victor Lindelof having hobbled off in the draw with Leicester, Axel Tuanzebe could be next in line to deputise at right-back.
