Preview, Team News and Predicted Lineup Ahead of Man United’s Clash against Wolves
Man United will be looking to kick off 2022 with a win when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford on Monday Evening by 18:30 BST.
Man United rounded off 2021 in style as goals from Mctominay, Ronaldo ensured Man United recorded a 3-1 win at Old Trafford. However, they need to build on that win when they host a resilient Wolves team, who have conceded just 2 goals in their last 7 games, keeping 5 clean sheets in the process. Man United sit on 7th in the table, just above their opponents in 8th, which means that there isn’t much of a difference between both teams. However, Man United boasts of World class players who could prove to be the difference in this fixture.
Both teams have already met this Season, with Man United coming out 1-0 winners from the Molineux Stadium. Wolves on the other hand won’t be happy with that result because they were by far the better team in that game and they will be looking to beat Man United on their Home Soil.
Man United Team News
After Bruno Fernandes’s suspension against Burnley due to the number of yellow cards he had accumulated this Season, he should be available for this Clash. Eric Bailly on the other hand suffered a minor injury against Burnley and should be deemed fit only to start on the bench. Consequently, Varane and Maguire should pair in defense.
Despite the competition from Telles and Dalot, Shaw and Wan Bissaka should retain their spot. Marcus Rashford should come back to the Starting XI as Man United will need his pace and skill to break down the Wolves defense.
Mctominay and Matic should pair in defensive midfield. Fernandes should come back to the Starting XI and will occupy the left midfield while Sancho should be on the right. Rashford and Ronaldo should be in attack in what sums up to be a 4-2-2-2 formation.
MAN UNITED PREDICTED LINEUP (4-2-2-2)
