Confirmed Starting XI: Dalot, Lingard and Lukaku lead the attack against Wolves; Rashford misses out through injury

Manchester United will be back in action in the Premier League on Tuesday evening, this time travelling back to the Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side returned to winning ways against Watford at the Theatre of Dreams on Saturday afternoon, after back to back defeats, a confidence booster for United.

United have done well under Solskjaer since December, losing just three matches out of the 20 which have been played so far. The Norwegian has earned more Premier League points that Jose Mourinho did in the first half of the season, which says something. United still have something to play for this season; top four and a strong UEFA Champions League finish.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Young, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw;

Fred, McTominay, Pogba;

Dalot, Lukaku, Lingard

Substitutes:

Romero; Jones, Rojo; Mata, Pereira, Matic; Martial

United and Wolves have played 99 competitive matches in the history of both clubs, dating back to the first match which was played on the 15 October 1892, a 10-1 Newton Heath victory in the old Division One. United has won 48 matches, drawn 17 matches and lost 35 matches. United will need to ensure they leave the Molineux with a win on Tuesday.

United got themselves back on track after a 2-1 victory over Watford at Old Trafford on Saturday. After back to back defeats, it was a welcome feeling. United found themselves back inside the top four, however, with Arsenal winning on Monday evening, United was back in fifth again before the clash with Wolves even kicked off.

Wolves are still that unpredictable team, being that they have lost twice, drawn twice and won twice in their last six matches. They will be boosted by the defeat over United a few weeks back which secured them an Emirates FA Cup semi-final place at Wembley this weekend. However, Wolves might rest players ahead of that Wembley match.
