United’s league match tomorrow against Wolves gives us a chance to redeem ourselves since our 2-1 FA Cup loss to the newly-promoted side. On the injury front Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Victor Lindelof could return for the game. Anthony Martial is also available after picking up a knock during Saturday’s 2-1 over Watford. Matteo Darmian, Eric Bailly, Antonio Valencia, and Alexis Sanchez are the only four players that are unavailable.
Ole spoke before the Watford game regarding Victor Lindelof. “Victor is not injured but he’s had some issues. He had a tough week so Victor will come back soon.” Eric Bailly missed the game at Watford because he reportedly sustained a head injury during an international game with the Ivory Coast. Alexis Sanchez is recovering from a knee injury that he picked up on March 2 in the 2-1 win over Southampton.
This match can go either way, because in our 2-1 win on Saturday against Watford we were outplayed especially in the first-half. Wolves is a more dangerous side than the Hornets. We know that Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez are the players that scored in that FA Cup game at Molineux where we lost 2-1 to them. Neves and Jonny are players that were threats as well.
United needs to take the game to them. We obviously need to be vigilant and be organized and compact defensively, because Wolves scored those goals on the counter-attack. That’s the key, we have to be being tactically aware about our positioning on the field and using proper judgement in threatening situations. Coach Nuno Espirito has all his players available for the match. So there are no injuries to report from their camp.
