Manchester United take on newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford on Saturday, and José Mourinho’s side shouldn’t be expecting a walkover. Coached by the Premier League’s resident hipster, Nuno Espirito Santo, Wolves have made a bright start to the season, and find themselves only a point behind United after five games. They head in on the back of two straight league wins, and their unorthodox 3-4-3 could cause United problems.
José Mourinho is without the injured Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo and Ander Herrera; Marcus Rashford and Nemanja Matić are both serving suspensions. For their part, Wolves have had an enviably consistent team so far this season: Espirto Santo has started the same XI in every single one of their Premier League matches. He’s expected to do the same once again on Saturday.
