Manchester United have named their team to face Wolves tonight at Old Trafford.
United are looking to keep up their good form and will hope that the draw at Leicester will be an indication of positive momentum, despite it being the first time this season the Red Devils have failed to win away from home.
Before the game, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suggested his biggest concerns would be in his defence, with Victor Lindelof and Aaron Wan-Bissaka hoping to pass fit.
“Victor didn’t train this morning [Monday] so we’ll give him 24 hours. He’s still getting treatment,” said the boss. “Aaron trained with the boys. We didn’t do a lot because there was snow and it was just about preparation training anyway. If there’s no reaction he should be available.”
Solskjaer has recently complained about fixture scheduling this season but seems to be more content with how things are at this traditionally busy time of the season.
“We’ve got used to it and I think the players are getting more and more robust and physically ready for games, with only two days rest in between,” he said. “Of course, we’ve got about 30 hours more than Wolverhampton to recover so we have a slight advantage in that respect, and hopefully we can make use of those extra calories of energy we’ve got.”
“It’s been different and difficult [this year], but then again that’s life for everyone now. We’ve been able to work and meet each other and play football, yes under different circumstances and in different environments, but we’ve been able to do what we love the most. We’ve been quite lucky in that respect – we’ve seen people all time. We’ve tried to make the most of it, I think the players have done really well and been really focused and professional. It’s maybe brought everyone down to the basics again for a while – washing their own clothes, no dressing rooms, no lunch, bring a packed lunch, and in one way I think that has challenged every player to look at themselves and say ‘do I do the right things?’ I think our group is getting to a good level of consistency in their good habits.”
