How Manchester United could line up against Wolverhampton Wanderers

Sports Mole looks at how Manchester United could line up for Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

Manchester United will be looking to continue their impressive FA Cup form on Saturday evening when they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the quarter-finals at Molineux.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have beaten Arsenal and Chelsea away from home in the last two rounds, and will be favourites to make it a hat-trick of Premier League scalps despite losing their unbeaten domestic record under the Norwegian last weekend.

The FA Cup remains United's best chance of silverware this season despite their unlikely progress in the Champions League, with victory on Saturday taking them into the semi-finals.

Here, Sports Mole looks at how the 12-time winners could line up.



Possible MNU XI vs. WOL

Out: Alexis Sanchez (knee)
Doubtful: Jesse Lingard (hamstring), Mason Greenwood (illness), Antonio Valencia (calf), Matteo Darmian (unspecified), Ander Herrera (hamstring), Juan Mata (hamstring), Phil Jones (illness)

Solskjaer will no doubt use Saturday to shuffle his pack a little, but he will also be wary of doing so too much against as dangerous an opponent as Wolves.

United have played a number of different formations under the Norwegian so far, but the return of Anthony Martial could lead to him switching back to a 4-3-3 this weekend with the in-form Romelu Lukaku leading the line and Marcus Rashford out wide.

Scott McTominay could be handed another opportunity to impress with Nemanja Matic having only recently returned from injury, while Fred may also retain his spot depending on the fitness of Ander Herrera.

Phil Jones is expected to be available again after illness and could start in defence, while Eric Bailly is pushing for his first start since his horror show against Paris Saint-Germain.

Diogo Dalot could be another to come in at right-back, while cup goalkeeper Sergio Romero is expected to start between the sticks instead of David de Gea.
