Manchester United welcome Wolves to Old Trafford as they look to take another step toward returning to the Champions League.
The Red Devils have lost back-to-back games on the road in the Premier League, but Erik ten Hag will be looking to continue their good home form this season.
Wolves beat Aston Villa 1-0 last weekend, a result that has confirmed their survival in the Premier League. They have a 10-point gap to the relegation zone with only three games left, and a top-10 finish is not out of the question if they can get a result at Old Trafford.
The Sporting News looks at the potential starting 11 each manager may choose to go with.
Man United vs Wolves lineups
Ten Hag’s side have had a much-needed break following a congested fixture list: excluding pauses in the calendar for international fixtures, this past week has been the first time United have had more than four days in between matches since last December. He will hope that his team come back refreshed for the final games of the season.
Julen Lopetegui continues with his 4-4-2 formation, which has seen Wolves escape a relegation battle. Although they kept a clean sheet in their last game, they will know that they still need to be better defensively after conceding six against Brighton & Hove Albion in their last away game.
