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

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's injury and suspension news ahead of their Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday.

Manchester United will aim to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when they travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday afternoon.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side opened the new season with a 5-1 thrashing of Leeds United before being held to a 1-1 draw by Southampton, with Mason Greenwood cancelling out an own goal by Fred at St Mary's.

The Red Devils did introduce Jadon Sancho off the bench in that game, while Raphael Varane was an unused substitute, but Solskjaer is still bedevilled with some injury concerns ahead of gameweek three.

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