Manchester United have won their last three across all competitions, with all three of those contests taking place away from the friendly confines of Old Trafford. Now they return to the theatre of dreams to face a newly promoted, but surprisingly formidable Wolverhampton Wanderers side.

If UEFA does suspend him for the next three European games, he would miss both contests against his former club, Manchester United. Juventus play at Old Trafford on October 23rd, and if Ronaldo is able to feature in that contest, it would be just the second time he’s been on the visitor’s side since leaving the club in 2009.
