Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided his team news report in advance of Sunday’s Premier League trip to Wolves.
The Red Devils are determined to head into the first international break of the season on a high after picking up four points from our opening two games against Leeds United and Southampton.
Matches against Wolves are traditionally very tight affairs – there hasn’t been more than a single goal difference in the last nine clashes between the clubs – and new Molineux boss Bruno Lage will be striving to respond to consecutive 1-0 league defeats to Leicester City and Tottenham. So it will definitely be a tight clash for the Reds.
Meanwhile, There has been a lot of talk over whether Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho will be introduced into the starting line-up.
Varane was an unused substitute at St Mary’s last weekend and has yet to appear for his new club, while Sancho has come off the bench in both of our opening fixtures.
Although Ole suggested our new center-back has been impressive in training but is playing his cards close to his chest over whether the new boys will feature.
On the other hand, Scott McTominay is out after undergoing groin surgery, with Dean Henderson, Alex Telles, and Marcus Rashford also absent.
“We’re still missing Scott, who had surgery this week,” said the manager. “Marcus, Alex, Dean Henderson, they’re not ready. But, apart from that, we have a fit squad ready to fight for points.
“Scott has had surgery and he couldn’t carry on. We tried to manage it and get him through without surgery but we couldn’t and, in the end, it was too sore for him. By the end of the Southampton game, when he came in, that was the decision.”
