Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Wolverhampton Wanderers



Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made it clear, earlier this January transfer window that he would like another striker on his roster, and given how depleted the final third position group is right now, who could blame him?

Heavily linked with AFC Bournemouth’s Josh King, a United academy product, OGS had this to say about any potential 11th hour move: “I don’t think we will do any more business, no. I don’t think so.” The Norwegian, at his weekly press conference today ahead of tomorrow’s Premier League fixture versus Wolverhampton Wanderers, said he expects new signing Bruno Fernandes to make his Red Devils debut this weekend.

Expect the new midfield maestro to be in the first team, simply out of need. As for attack, Solskjaer also said the club will get by with the forwards they have.

“I am happy with ones I have here,” he added.

“And with Bruno coming in we can play in a different way maybe. And of course with the centre-backs coming back lately and what we’ve done with three at the back, that might be an option to tactically change a bit.”

Okay, sure, but he likely still has to start Jesse Lingard, and that’s not a situation anybody would want.
