Manchester United vs Wolves
England – Premier League
Date: Tuesday, 29 December 2020
Kick-off at 20:00 UK/ 21:00 CET
Venue: Old Trafford.


All eyes will be on Old Trafford when Manchester United and Wolverhampton face each other in the Premier League round 16.

The Red Devils have been impressive in front of goal of late, with the team netting 11 goals in total in the previous three league fixtures, and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against Wolverhampton.

The likes of Jones, Lindelof, and Rojo are all out of contention with injuries for the hosts, but boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can count on key players for Tuesday’s showdown.

The Wolves, on the other hand, showed character in their last league match, with the team coming from behind to share the spoils with Tottenham.

Wolverhampton, though, have been struggling in the Premier League ever since Raul Jimenez suffered a serious injury, and seeing that the Mexico international remains in the treatment room, home win should be considered.

Team News:

Victor Lindelof was unable to play through the pain against Leicester as his chronic back problem forced him off in the second period, and the makeshift right-back is not expected to feature on Tuesday.

The Red Devils have not disclosed details regarding Aaron Wan-Bissaka's injury, but with the defender also a doubt here, Tuanzebe should be given the chance to redeem himself with a start against Wolves.

Changes could be afoot with only 72 hours in between matches, with Edinson Cavani - who provided the assist for Fernandes's 10th league goal of the season on Boxing Day - potentially in line to spearhead the attack in place of Anthony Martial.

As for Wolves, Marcal struggled near the end of the game on Sunday evening, and with less than 48 hours to recover, Rayan Ait Nouri is likely to start against Man United.

Long-term absentees Raul Jimenez and Jonny Otto were joined in the stands by Leander Dendoncker and Willy Boly for the visit of Spurs, and the pair remain major doubts for this one too.

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Tuanzebe, Maguire, Bailly, Telles; Fred, McTominay; Greenwood, Fernandes, Rashford; Cavani

Wolverhampton Wanderers possible starting lineup:
Patricio; Semedo, Coady, Saiss, Ait Nouri; Neves, Moutinho; Traore, Podence, Neto; Silva
