Manchester United’s Possible XI To Play Wolves

Their opponents are in turmoil, having had to replace their manager on the eve of their first game, with Gary O’Neil replacing Julen Lopetegui in the dugout.

Erik ten Hag’s side will, therefore, be heavy favourites to get the three points when the two sides face other at Old Trafford.

New signing Andre Onana will start in goal, with Diogo Dalot expected to be selected ahead of Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back due to the fact that the Red Devils will have a lot of the ball in their opening home fixture. Luke Shaw is likely to line up on the left-hand side,

Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez are poised to rekindle their strong partnership from last season in the centre of defence.

Following the arrival of Mason Mount, it will be interesting to see how the new signing from Chelsea is integrated into the starting eleven, considering he does take up some of the same positions as captain Bruno Fernandes.

They could both start on Monday evening, with Casemiro as the sole holding midfield player. Christian Eriksen may have to be satisfied with a place on the bench.

Up front, ten Hag will need to make one or two difficult calls. Jadon Sancho has performed well in pre-season but the feeling is that Antony and Alejandro Garnacho are both ahead of him in the pecking order at the moment.

With new recruit Rasmus Hojlund not expected to return to fitness until early September due to a back problem, there is a strong possibility that Marcus Rashford will lead the line.
