Manchester United vs Wolves LIVE: Team news, line-ups and more ahead of Premier League fixture tonight


Manchester United host Wolves aiming to kick-start their Premier League title race and move into second place in the table with victory at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were pegged back twice against Leicester City in a 2-2 draw with Harvey Barnes and an Axel Tuanzebe own-goal cancelling out strikes from Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes. While Wolves produced a fine display on Sunday to salvage a point in a 1-1 draw against Tottenham thanks to a late goal from Romain Saiss.

While United can close the gap on champions Liverpool to just two points with victory, Wolves can boost their hopes of claiming a European place and narrow the gap on the top four and United, currently occupying fourth place and that last spot that provides entry to the Champions League, to just three points by pulling off the upset tonight.
