Wolverhampton Wanderers are set to host Manchester United at the Molineux Stadium on Sunday in the English Premier League.
Wolverhampton Wanderers will be going into this game after an emphatic 4-0 triumph over Chris Hughton’s Nottingham Forest in the second round of the EFL Cup. They should be brimming with confidence with the outcome before facing the ‘Red Devils. Second-half goals from centre-back Romain Saiss, Portuguese wingers Daniel Podence and Francisco Trincao, and midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White sealed the match for Bruno Lage’s Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Wolves manager Bruno Lage will be unable to call upon the services of Spanish full-back Jonny, Portuguese winger Pedro Neto, and centre-backs Willy Boly and Yerson Mosquera.
Manchester United, on the other hand, have bagged the signing of superstar winger Cristiano Ronaldo, who will make his return to the club after 12 years. ‘Red Devils’ are eyeing to deliver excellent performances before Ronaldo arrives to the club. They drew 1-1 against Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Southampton in the league in their last outing. A first-half own goal from Brazilian midfielder Fred for Southampton was canceled by a second-half goal from talented forward Mason Greenwood for Manchester United.
Meanwhile, Manchester United will be without Brazilian left-back Alex Telles, star forward Marcus Rashford and Scotland international Scott McTominay. There are also doubts over the availability of goalkeeper Dean Henderson and Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have appointed a relatively unknown manager in Bruno Lage to replace fan-favorite Nuno Espirito Santo. Under the new management, Wolves are still trying to familiarize themselves and are relying on the form of striker Raul Jimenez and winger Adama Traore, who has been heavily linked to Tottenham Hotspur recently.
Manchester United, on the other hand, were disappointing against Southampton. Fans will be eager to see French centre-back Raphael Varane make his first appearance for the club, and the 28-year old could start against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The two clubs last faced each other earlier this year in the English Premier League, with Manchester United beating Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1. This time around an edgy 1-0 outcome in favor of United is expected.
