Wolves v United: Essential information

Thursday 02 January 2020 15:31

Manchester United begin another Emirates FA Cup journey on Saturday, with a third-round tie against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

It will be the fourth time in less than a year that the Reds have made the journey to the Black Country, having faced Nuno Espirito Santo's side in the quarter-finals of last season's competition and twice in the league.

This weekend's match will kick off at 17:31 GMT, as all third-round games will be delayed by one minute to encourage fans to ‘Take A Minute’ to think about looking after their mental health, as part of the 'Heads Up' campaign.

Here's everything you need to know about our third round fixture...
