Wolverhampton Wanderers will be without Ruben Vinagre against Manchester United on Saturday. According to BBC Sport, the 20-year-old ‘remains sidelined’ with a hamstring injury. Jonny Otto should get the nod at left-back as a result.
Vinagre has made 23 appearances in all competitions this season, last featuring in Wolves’ FA Cup defeat to with United (January 15) – he picked up the knock in the final stages of the game. The Portuguese u21 international subsequently missed Wolves’ 3-2 win over Southampton (January 18) and 2-1 defeat to Liverpool (January 23), but he’s no closer to returning.
Jonny has been a regular this season, making 34 appearances across the board, and should be given the nod again at left-back. The 25-year-old has played in all but one of Wolves’ 24 Premier League games in 2019/20, amassing 1937 minutes of football from a possible 2160, so he’s a trusty player to call upon. In Vinagre’s absence.
Wolves are coming off the back of only one win in five ahead of their trip to Old Trafford, but they could end the weekend fifth in the table if they come out on top.
