Team News: Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer provides the latest ahead of our trip to the Molineux
According to the club’s official site, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed the latest Manchester United team news ahead of our trip to the Molineux to face Wolves on Sunday.
The Red Devils take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in what is their second straight away game on the trot. United started the season with a 5-1 hammering of Leeds United at home. However, they followed it up with a disappointing 1-1 draw at Southampton.
Solskjaer will be keen to get back to winning ways but will have to do so without four senior players. The quartet of Scott McTominay, Alex Telles, Marcus Rashford and Dean Henderson will all miss out.
“We’re still missing Scott, who had surgery this week.”
“Marcus, Alex, Dean Henderson, they’re not ready. But, apart from that, we have a fit squad ready to fight for points.”
All eyes will be on United’s summer signings Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane and whether they will start on the night. While the former has made a couple of substitute appearances, Varane is yet to take to the field in red.
Despite the absences, United have enough in the tank to take on a plucky Wolves side who have lost their first two games under new manager Bruno Lage. With Liverpool and Chelsea set to face off this weekend a win at the Molineux will help United climb up the table.
United have now gone 27 straight games unbeaten away from home, drawing themselves level with Arsenal’s Invincibles who managed the feat in 2003 and 2004. Avoiding defeat this Sunday will see the Red Devils take the record for themselves.

Wolves, meanwhile, welcome back Raul Jimenez and possibly Willy Boly who had suffered a hamstring injury. They will be without Jonny Castro and Pedro Neto.
Wolves won their midweek League Cup fixture 4-0 against Nottingham Forest and may fancy their chances at home. The onus is on United to show that the lessons were learned at St Mary’s last weekend.
