Manchester United return to action on Friday, taking on Wolverhampton Wanderers in their FA Cup quarterfinal tie. Ole Gunnar Solskjær will surely see the competition as offering his best chance of silverware this season, with Manchester City the only scary side left in the final eight.
However, United should avoid taking Wolves lightly: Nuno Espírito Santo’s side sit a phenomenally impressive seventh in the Premier League table, having had no problems adapting since their promotion last season. They’ve won five of their last six at home, including beating Liverpool in the FA Cup.
United will still be without Matteo Darmian, Juan Mata, Antonio Valencia and Alexis Sánchez through injury; Ashley Young is suspended. Phil Jones, Mason Greenwood, Ander Herrera, Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku are all doubts. Wolves, somewhat enviously, have a clean bill of health.
