United’s previous game with Wolves was a hard fought game at Molineux early in the season with Mason Greenwood netting a late winner.

Ralf Rangnick is looking to maintain his unbeaten record as United boss, and make it four wins from five league games.

Tonight’s opponents Wolves have only played once over the festive period, a 0-0 draw with Norwich.

After this game United have a break until the following Monday night’s FA Cup third round tie at home to Aston Villa.
