December 30, 2022

Manchester United  are once again sweating on a number of defensive injury issues ahead of Saturday’s trip to Wolves.

Although Raphael Varane was able to return to the starting XI for the win over Nottingham Forest, the Red Devils were without Lisandro Martinez and Victor Lindelof.

Harry Maguire was able to return from illness off the bench with the same issue keeping Lindelof out of the squad..

Martinez is back in training following the World Cup final so could make his return to the starting line-up.

United boss Erik ten Hag will confirm which of his players are available to face Wolves when he faces the media on Friday afternoon.

The Dutchman may consider rotating his side in the busy festive schedule with Varane in particular having rushed back from injury to play last time out.

Scott McTominay also sat out the Forest win due to illness while Axel Tuanzebe is injured and Jadon Sancho still missing from United training due to a fitness problem.

Diogo Dalot is a doubt with a hamstring injury.

Predicted Manchester United XI: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Eriksen; Antony, Fernandes, Rashford; Martial.
