Manchester United are in decent form after recording another win over Young Boys. The Red Devils have won their last three matches but face a tough challenge against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

Paul Pogba scored a brace in the win over Young Boys and he should start the game. However, we have a few suspensions in the side as Marcus Rashford and Nemanja Matic are out.

United need to keep winning to maintain pressure on the Premier League leaders and here is our predicted line-up for the match on Saturday.

Predicted Manchester United XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Jose Mourinho

David de Gea (GK)

Dave was brilliant in our win over Watford and kept Young Boys out early on. The Spaniard must start unless he picks up an injury.

Antonio Valencia (RB)

Valencia was not risked in Switzerland and should return to the side despite Diogo Dalot’s brilliant debut.

Chris Smalling (CB)

The Englishman has performed better this season and was immense in our win over Young Boys. Smalling must start for sure against Wolves at Old Trafford.

Victor Lindelof (CB)

Although Lindelof hasn’t looked comfortable at the back, we cannot drop him since he has formed a bit of a decent partnership with Smalling.

Luke Shaw (LB)

Shaw has been on fire for us this season and there is no reason to drop the Englishman for this match.

Fred (CM)

The Brazilian has found it tough to perform for United and didn’t do well against Young Boys. Hopefully, we will get to see the best of him on Saturday.

Marouane Fellaini (CM)

Fellaini was brilliant in the win over Watford last weekend and should start for us against Wolves at Old Trafford.

Paul Pogba (CM)

One of the stars on display on Wednesday night, Pogba was good in patches and scored two goals. The Frenchman is gradually getting to his best and we need 90 minutes of his best on the pitch.

Alexis Sanchez (LW)

Sanchez is yet to play like he did at Arsenal but he should start on Saturday, given that Rashford will be serving a ban.

Jesse Lingard (RW)

The Englishman didn’t start against Young Boys but he must impress against the Wolves on Saturday.
