Wolves vs Manchester United team news: Confirmed starting lineups for Premier League clash

Team news live from Molineux as Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United release their starting lineups and substitutes ahead of kick off.

Wolverhampton Wanderers and Manchester United have announced their starting lineups ahead of the Premier League clash at Molineux this midday. Wolves, currently in 18th place, will be looking to build on their dramatic late 2-1 victory away at Everton on Boxing Day.

Rayan Ait-Nouri came off the bench to cause problems for the Toffees and was the man in the right place at the right time to get the ball over the line deep into stoppage time. Daniel Podence, who starts against the Red Devils, grabbed an equaliser for Wolves in the first half, responding to Yerry Mina’s early opener.

United, meanwhile, recorded a dominant 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest on December 27 as Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Fred got on the scoresheet. Erik ten Hag and his men are well and truly on a top four march and they will undoubtedly be a tough first home opposition for Julen Lopetegui, even with Rashford dropped to the bench.

The new Wolves head coach has put his trust in Diego Costa to lead the line today, with Podence and Hwang Hee-chan supporting to complete a front three. Joao Moutinho, Ruben Neves and Matheus Nunes are the trio in the centre of the park, whereas Max Kilman and Nathan Collins will be those battling at centre back. Hugo Bueno and Nelson Semedo will defend from full-back, and Jose Sa retains his spot between the sticks.
