Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's FA Cup quarter-final with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

Manchester United will be looking to bounce back from their first domestic defeat under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer when they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup at Molineux on Saturday evening.

After the high of their miraculous comeback against Paris Saint-Germain last week, United were brought back down to earth with a bump as they fell to a 2-0 defeat at Arsenal on Sunday.

The result leaves them playing catch-up in the top-four race once again, but for now their focus must switch to the FA Cup - a competition which provides their most realistic chance of silverware this season.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's contest.
