Early team news: United v Wolves

Monday 28 December 2020 11:18

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may be able to welcome Aaron Wan-Bissaka back to the Manchester United side for Tuesday’s Premier League encounter with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Reds host Nuno Espirito Santo’s men hoping to continue our excellent unbeaten run in the league.

United made it eight without defeat thanks to our Boxing Day draw with Leicester City, in which Victor Lindelof deputised at right-back in Aaron’s absence.

The Swede was then withdrawn in the second period due to injury, with Axel Tuanzebe replacing him in the full-back position.
“It is his back again I think,” the boss told us after match with Leicester. “So we will just have to assess that one before Wolverhampton.”

“Then again, Eric [Bailly] is fit now, Axel is fit, so of course we might have to look at that before Wolverhampton.”

With Lindelof now a possible doubt for Wolves, Ole was given positive news on Sunday with Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s return to training, meaning he could be fit to feature, while Brandon Williams and Tim Fosu-Mensah - who can also operate at right-back - were among those in training.

Bailly, who played his first Premier League minutes since October in the 2-2 draw with Leicester, was also pictured in the recovery session.

During the busy festive season, Ole may be tempted to refresh his squad for a tough match against a Wolves side who have picked up points against Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur this month. Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani and Tuanzebe came off the bench against Leicester and were part of the group pictured at the Aon Training Complex.

Dean Henderson, Alex Telles, Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek, Jesse Lingard, Mason Greenwood and Odion Ighalo were also involved in the session after not featuring against the Foxes, and could be options for the boss on Tuesday.

It’s also worth noting that a number of youngsters were called up to the senior group for the recent training session, including Facundo Pellistri, Ethan Laird, Anthony Elanga, Shola Shoretire and Will Fish.
