Man Utd XI vs Wolves: Double Injury Boost As Solskjaer Makes 5 Changes

Man Utd XI vs Wolves

Man Utd take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Saturday night in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup. Here is the lineup Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will likely go with:

In goal, David De Gea could be set for a rest as Sergio Romero has played in each of the last three games in the FA Cup this season and Solskjaer has hinted he's ready to stick with the Argentinean international tomorrow.

In defence, United will be without Ashley Young due to suspension so Diogo Dalot could start at right-back against Wolves while Luke Shaw should keep his place at left-back.

Phil Jones is back in contention after returning to full fitness but he hasn't played in over a month so the United boss might be reluctant to throw him straight into action.

Solskjaer may be tempted to freshen things up in defence though so Eric Bailly could replace Chris Smalling alongside Victor Lindelof in the middle of the back four.

Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia remain unavailable for selection but they might be fully fit after the upcoming international break.

And in the centre of the pack, Nemanja Matic made a successful return from injury during Manchester United's league defeat at Arsenal last weekend so he should retain his place in the holding role while Paul Pogba is expected to once again start in the middle of the park.

Man Utd have been boosted by the return of Ander Herrera as the Spaniard is expected to be named in the squad after taking part in full training this week following a hamstring injury.

So Fred may find himself dropping to the bench alongside Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira.

For the attack, United's options in the attack could be boosted by the return of Jesse Lingard as he's taken part in training this week after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Anthony Martial returned from a groin problem with a substitute's appearance against Arsenal last week so the Frenchman should be recalled to start for Manchester United against Wolves this weekend.

Romelu Lukaku is a major doubt after picking up a foot problem against the Gunners.

Marcus Rashford could lead the lineup front but Alexis Sanchez is still a number of weeks away from returning to action after suffering a knee injury against Southampton earlier this month.

Juan Mata is also still out for United with a hamstring injury so Mason Greenwood will be hoping to overcome illness to force his way into Solskjaer's squad if Lukaku is ruled out.
