Wolves vs Manchester United prediction: Wolves line-up
Wolves are back at home as they welcome Manchester United at the Molineux on Monday in the Premier League.
After drawing 0-0 with Leicester City in their season opener last week, Wolves qualified for the Europa League play-off by beating Armenian club Pyunik 4-0 at home on Thursday, 8-0 on aggregate.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side gave a tough time to Manchester United at The Molineux last season, dumping Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side out of the quarter-finals in the FA Cup before defeating them 2-1 in the Premier League.
Wolves have no injury concerns ahead of the game on Monday.
Probable Wolves XI
Rui Patricio (GK)
Patricio is Wolves’ undisputed no.1 and he should start against Manchester United on Monday.
Matt Doherty (RWB)
Doherty was one of Wolves’ best players last season as he provided a brilliant balance between the attack and the defence. He is a certainty to start the forthcoming game.
Connor Coady (RCB)
A rock at the back, Coady is expected to lead the backline against Manchester United.
Ryan Bennett (CB)
Bennett will have to be at his best to stop United’s pacey forwards at the Molineux.
Willy Boly (LCB)
Boly has been a vital cog for Wolves with the way in which they play with three at the back.
Jonny Castro (LWB)
The Spaniard did very well in his debut season in England and will be preferred ahead of Vinagre at left wing-back.
Joao Moutinho (LCM)
Moutinho brings creativity and experience to this Wolves side. He is a definite starter against Solskjaer’s side.
Ruben Neves (CDM)
A classy operator of the ball, Neves excels with his ability to break up play and initiate attacks from a deeper position in midfield. He’ll be tasked to keep Pogba quiet.
Leander Dendoncker (RCM)
Dendoncker’s presence gives Wolves’ midfield a much-needed physicality and power.
Diogo Jota (LS)
With his burst of pace and movement, Jota can be a tricky customer for United’s defenders.
