Manchester United will lock horns with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux on Sunday evening, hoping to pick up all three points in their third game of the campaign. The Red Devils will be coming into the match on the back of a disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton, whereas Bruno Lage’s men recorded a 1-0 loss against Tottenham Hotspur last week.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will probably opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game. Jadon Sancho might get the nod over Anthony Martial, whereas Raphael Varane looks likely to make his debut.

Defence

David de Gea is expected to start in between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Spanish shot-stopper would be looking to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Sunday.

Dean Henderson is still recovering from the after-effects of coronavirus.

Raphael Varane will replace Victor Lindelof to form the centre-half partnership with skipper Harry Maguire at the heart of United’s backline.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a guaranteed starter at the right-back position, whereas Luke Shaw will fill in on the other flank as the left-back. The English duo would be expected to stay compact and keep their shape defensively.

Midfield

Manchester United’s official website has delivered an update on Scott McTominay’s situation following his surgery.

“Scott has undergone surgery for an ongoing groin injury that was causing significant pain when playing, 

“Having tried all other treatment options in pre-season, surgery was deemed necessary to resolve the issue.

“We hope to have him back soon.”

As a result, Donny van de Beek is expected to start in the central midfield position, whereas Fred will slot in as the defensive midfielder.

Bruno Fernandes remains a sure-fire starter for United this week, and it’ll be an understatement to say The Red Devils will be highly dependent on the Portugal international’s creative work if they wish to pick up a win on Sunday.

Paul Pogba and Jadon Sancho will take up the wide positions, playing on the left and right-wing respectively.

Attack

Mason Greenwood is expected to lead the line for the visitors against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The 19-year-old striker’s adept movement in front of the goal could cause a lot of trouble for the Wolves defence that has conceded 2 goals in their last two matches.

Veteran striker Edinson Cavani could be brought on in the second forty-five minutes of the game if needed.
