Wolves vs Man United Line Ups: Solskjaer Makes 2 Key Changes

Wolves vs Man United

Manchester United travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers this evening as the Red Devils go in hunt for another three points to aid their top four hunt.

Victory over Watford on Saturday saw United draw level on points with Tottenham Hotspur, but along with Arsenal and Chelsea, the four of them are competing for the final two Champions League spots.

David de Gea can expect another busy game on Tuesday as Wolves have a potent attack.

Victor Lindelof can expect to return to the starting lineup alongside Chris Smalling in the middle of our back four.

Luke Shaw will continue at left-back. Given his age, Ashley Young could be replaced by Diogo Dalot but as we’re not in action next weekend I think his place will be fine.

Paul Pogba needs to put in a much better performance than what he showed against Watford last time out though.

Jesse Lingard should retain his role as the number 10 though Juan Mata could give him a run for his money.

Romelu Lukaku would replace Anthony Martial who faced the Hornets on Saturday. You can be sure Marcus Rashford is in the starting lineup at Molineux.
