Our predicted MUFC XI for the Premier League away game vs Wolves is now in…
Manchester United made relatively light work of Nottingham Forest on the 27th, with the games now starting to come thick and fast for the Red Devils.
Next up, a potentially tricky away game against Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Midlands outfit haven’t been at their best results-wise this term, though they’re dangerous on their day – particularly with the home crowd behind them.
Erik ten Hag can have no excuses. He simply has to win these matches if he’s serious about challenging for trophies and important victories on a regular basis. Perhaps the burden is made somewhat heavier because he has almost a full squad available at his disposal.
Anyway, our team news is now in, so let’s get right down into it…
Check out our predicted MUFC XI vs Wolves in full here:
David de Gea starts in between the sticks as per usual, with the Spaniard slowly but surely adapting to this new way of playing.
The back four is only one key piece short, with Diogo Dalot still nursing an injury he picked up while away with Portugal. From right to left, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, the recently-returned Lisandro Martinez, Raphael Varane and Luke Shaw all play. There should be more than enough quality amongst this group to defend well enough.
Casemiro has been an absolute revelation. The Brazil international started slowly but we’re now seeing his true class. He loves doing the dirty work, while also playing his part when United go forward. Christian Eriksen brings that calming influence to midfield, while Bruno Fernandes doesn’t need an introduction.
Anthony Martial leads the line here, fresh off a confidence-boosting goal at home to Forest in his last match. To his right and left respectively is Antony and Marcus Rashford. The latter has been in top form lately, while the club probably need a little more from the former.
