Manchester United welcome Wolves to Old Trafford as they look to strengthen their bid for a top four place under Ralf Rangnick.

The German is yet to taste defeat as United boss and his side bounced back from their woeful 1-1 draw against Newcastle with a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Burnley in midweek.

Bruno Fernandes' return poses a selection headache for Rangnick as they head into a pivotal - and yet very winnable - run of games in January.

Here's how United could line up....


Man Utd predicted lineup vs Wolves

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

David De Gea (GK) - United would be considerably worse off were it not for the Spaniard's performances this season.

Diogo Dalot (RB) - A position which must be addressed for United, but the Portuguese provides a better short-term solution than Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Raphael Varane (CB) - His return from injury will have boosted Rangnick as he aims to solidify his side's defence.

Harry Maguire (CB) - Looked more assured in the win over Burnley, but he still has a long way to go to restore faith among the United fans.

Luke Shaw (LB) - Impressed in the win over Burnley and boasts better quality in possession than Alex Telles.

2. Midfielders

Jadon Sancho (RM) - Rangnick may be keen to see the winger in the position he excelled in at Borussia Dortmund.

Fred (CM) - His general performances have improved since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's departure.

Scott McTominay (CM) - His energy and doggedness in midfield has made him an instant hit with Rangnick. Scored last time out.

Bruno Fernandes (LM) - Should go straight back into the team following his return from suspension, although this isn't his best position.

3. Forwards

Cristiano Ronaldo (ST) - The go-to man for goals in this United side, and Rangnick has indulged him despite his lack of off-the-ball work.

Edinson Cavani (ST) - Has made a big impact in recent weeks since his return a niggling tendon problem, with his movement sublime.
