Manchester United vs Wolves Match Preview and Team News
Fixtures between these two sides have traditionally been close affairs, with last season’s game at Old Trafford ending up a goalless draw. Prior to that, United won in the FA Cup by a single goal when the sides met in January 2020 – Juan Mata scored the game’s only goal. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have to rotate the starting XI to the one that starts against Leicester. This should likely see opportunities for Edinson Cavani, Donny Van de Beek, and Mason Greenwood. Scott McTominay’s strong performance against Leeds could once again cost Paul Pogba his spot in the line-up. Having failed to qualify for the Champions League’s knock-out stage, the focus is very much on domestic competitions, and the festive period will be a good test of Solskjaer’s squad strength. The manager faces the visit of Aston Villa just three days after the match against Wolves and will need to protect his key players. Marcus Rashford is the engine of this team, he goes through the opponent’s defense like a fast train, has excellent ball control, and the English international can be satisfied with his performance. Bruno Fernandes is the best player on the team, and the Portuguese international takes the penalty without a mistake.
The Wolves’ last win over United came in Molineux in April 2019, when Diogo Jota and Chris Smalling’s own goal canceled Scott McTominai’s opening, while Ashley Young was ruled out for United. Nuno Espirito Santo will also make changes to his line-up, although he will be wary of over-rotating having paid Burnley’s price. Adama Traore may be handed a rare start up-front, with Daniel Podence dropping back into the midfield. Jonny remains sidelined through injury, as is Leandro Dendoncker, while Raul Jiminez is a long-term absentee. For Nuno Espirito Santo, Tuesday provides the opportunity to bag another scalp, having beaten Chelsea last week. Unfortunately for Wolves, their failure to play consistently saw them lose to Burnley, which should have been an easy three points. Ruben Neves has excellent ball control, he can play in several positions, and every team needs such a player. Many clubs are willing to give a fortune for his arrival. Adama Traore is the engine of this team, his greatest virtue is speed, he has excellent ball control, and he can be satisfied with his performance.
