SUGGESTED STARTING XIs: Manchester United seek revenge over Wolves!


Manchester United travel to Molineux for the second time in 17 days hoping to claim their first win against Wolves this season. After being dumped out the FA Cup by them in March Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men will be on the prowl for revenge, but who will he pick to hunt down the three points?

Although Victor Lindelof is available for selection again, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling were so good as centre-back partners against Watford that they deserve to keep their place.

The entire midfield three was woeful at the weekend. However, since Nemanja Matic was especially bad in his holding role, he should be the one making way for Scott McTominay to come in.

Although Marcus Rashford did score against Watford, Romelu Lukaku was on fire in front of goal before his injury, so the Englishman should move to the right to allow the Belgian to operate down the middle.

With Arsenal winning last night and Chelsea playing out-of-form Brighton tomorrow evening, Manchester United have to win tonight. Therefore, that requires Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to pick his strongest XI to play Wolves.

De Gea is a given. Ashley Young wasn’t at his best on Saturday and deserves a rest. On the other hand, Diogo Dalot was in some terrific form prior to the international break and should be fresh ahead of tonight’s game.

Lindelof, if available, would usually come straight back into the side. However, given how shaky he looked against Wolves in the FA Cup and how well Jones d on Saturday, I wouldn’t further disturb the back line.

Despite finding himself in really poor form, one of Matic’s best games this season was against Wolves a couple of weeks ago. However, he just seems to be lacking match sharpness at the moment and perhaps is feeling fatigued after a long season. In comes McTominay to an otherwise unchanged midfield.

United were really sloppy in possession when they reached the final third in that FA Cup loss. A man with Juan Mata’s composure was needed, therefore he should start tonight. His display on the weekend also showed how he can fit into an Ole Gunnar Solskjaer team, in behind Rashford and Anthony Martial.
