Wolverhampton Wanderers take to the pitch once more this weekend as we travel to Old Trafford for the latest Premier League tie against Manchester United and Jose Mourinho.
After spats with the media in recent weeks, results have improved the mood around the red of Manchester – not least Mourinho’s own attitude – but it’s not like Wolves don’t go into the game in good spirits given our own start to life in the top tier and victory over Burnley is a boost given how they’ve improved following their own promotion a few years ago.
Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo isn’t a man for many changes as we’ve already seen this year so, unless an injury that I’m not aware of as I type gets in the way, I really don’t see changes to the starting XI for this one.
Jonny Castro, Boly, Coady, Bennett, Doherty,
Jota, Jimenez, Traore.
Consistency, continuity and confidence are with them, so why can’t we pull off the unexpected to continue our rise in recent years and take a massive scalp in the process?
It’s hardly a weak United side, but Phil Jones and Ander Herrera are reportedly out injured. Marcus Rashford and Nemanja Matic are serving a suspension I believe and Marcos Rojo is rated as doubtful.
