Out of action for over two weeks, Wolves make their return with a trip to face Manchester United in the Premier League.

Bruno Lage's side were unable to fulfill their fixtures against Watford and Arsenal due to a combination of injury and Covid-19, although they are still nestled in the top half of the table.

Victory for Wolves would be momentous and it could actually lift Lage's side to within three points of United on the brink of the European places.

Here's how Wolves could line up for this one...

Wolves predicted lineup vs Man Utd

1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Max Kilman

Jose Sa (GK) - His performances this campaign resulted in him placing highly in 90min's list of 2021's best transfers.

Max Kilman (CB) - The left-footed right-sided centre back has made that unusual role his own.

Conor Coady (CB) - The leader in the Wolves defence and never afraid to put his body on the line.

Romain Saiss (CB) - Will be his last game in a Wolves jersey before he jets off to the Africa Cup of Nations.

2. Wing-backs & midfielders

Nelsen Semedo (RWB) - His powerful runs from deep will be crucial.

Ruben Neves (CM) - Makes Wolves tick in midfield with his wonderful array of passes.

Leander Dendoncker (CM) - Lage may bring the Belgian in to solidify his midfield in this one and deny the hsosts a foothold.

Joao Moutinho (CM) - His control and passing in midfield is outstanding and allows Wolves to play higher up the pitch.

Marcal (LWB) - Has filled in commendably on the left hand side in the absence of Rayan Ait-Nouri.

3. Forwards

Raul Jimenez (ST) - The talisman for Wolves in recent seasons prior to his injury, although he only has three goals to his name so far in 2021.22.

Daniel Podence (ST) - A good foil for Jimenez with his speed in behind.
