Manchester United vs Wolves
Premier League 2018/19
Venue: Old Trafford
Date: Saturday, 22 September, 2018
Kick-off: 3pm BST

Manchester United face an intriguing Premier League test this afternoon as they welcome Wolves to Old Trafford.

United suffered back-to-back League defeats to spark talk of a club in crisis, but the Red Devils have won their last three matches - including Wednesday's 3-0 Champions League victory over Young Boys - to steady the ship.

But while United look to be back on track, they face a Wolves side full of confidence after a positive start to the campaign, and Nuno Espirito Santo - touted in recent weeks as a potential future United manager - will want to get one over on compatriot Jose Mourinho in his own back yard.
