United announced a sensational return for one of the club’s favourite sons on Friday after it had initially looked as if the Portuguese superstar was heading to rivals Manchester City.
There is no second debut for Ronaldo just yet as the Red Devils look to get back to winning ways after following an opening day rout of rivals Leeds with a disappointing draw at Southampton.
If they avoid defeat today, United will surpass Arsenal’s Premier League record of 27 consecutive away matches unbeaten.
They come up against a Wolves side that are yet to get a point on the board under new boss Bruno Lage following successive 1-0 defeats against Leicester and Tottenham.
However, they did thrash Championship strugglers Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup in midweek.

Here’s how both teams could line up at Molineux this afternoon, with official team news less than 40 minutes away…
Wolves: Sa, Kilman, Coady, Saiss, Semedo, Neves, Moutinho, Marcal, Trincao, Jimenez, Traore
Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, Matic; Sancho, Fernandes, Pogba; Greenwood
Standard Sport prediction
Wolves’ tough start does not get any easier but they have at least proven themselves a relatively tough nut to crack in only losing to Leicester and Spurs by the odd goal.
However, United will surely be desperate to right the wrongs of last weekend and may have too much firepower, particularly if Sancho is thrown in from the off.
Man United team news
Manchester United fans will have to wait until after the upcoming international break to see Cristiano Ronaldo’s second debut for the club.
Scott McTominay is absent after groin surgery, with 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), also on the sidelines at present.
Summer signings Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane are both pushing for their first United starts at Molineux.
Wolves team news
Daniel Podence could start for Wolves today after playing 65 minutes and scoring in Tuesday’s 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup.
Willy Boly and Yerson Mosquera have begun training, but Jonny, Pedro Neto and Hugo Bueno remain sidelined.
