    United looking over shoulder at rivals

    The Dutch manager addressed the elephant in the room with Liverpool only a point behind the Red Devils in the league table:

    It's clear, we know that, but it's not important because we have everything in our hands. We must bring our performance, then it's not importmant. What is important is the opponent we face, Wolves. We have to take them seriously. They have done a great job, focus on that but they also have deficits, take advantage of that.

    Costa dropping points in European push

    Wolves striker Diego Costa will be looking to rough-up the United back line this afternoon as the visitors look to cause a shock at Old Trafford.

    Should the visitors come away with any points today, it would give fierce rivals Liverpool a chance to catch the Manchester club in the race for Champions League football.

    Costa has been putting in some match-winning performances of late and will feel he has something to prove against the bigger clubs in the league since his Chelsea days.

    Marcus leaves big hole in forward line

    With United struggling to convert chances, the absence of Marcus Rashford will have a big effect on Erik ten Hag’s side this afternoon.

    After defeat against West Ham in their most recent league match, the United fans will be wanting to see their side bounce back today.

    Wolves have struggled for form on the road but will see this game as a ‘free hit’ now they are sure that they will be playing Premier League football next season.

    Welcome to Man Utd vs Wolves

    Erik ten Hag’s side welcome Wolves to Old Trafford this afternoon with the visitors’ Premier League status secure and the hosts trying to secure their top four finish.

    Marcus Rashford will not be available this afternoon as he looks to recover from a leg injury, while Alejandro Garnacho has returned from an ankle injury and was an unused sub in the defeat to West Ham.

    Lisandro Martinez, Phil Jones, Tom Heaton, Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay all remain out with injuries while Raphael Varane has made a speedy comeback and could be involved today.

    The Dutch manager will need to decide whether to recall Alejandro Garnacho or Jadon Sancho with Rashford missing, while Martial and Weghorst battle it out to lead the line.

    As for Wolves, they will be working with the same squad that secured victory over Aston Villa, with Only Boubacar Traore, Chiquinho and Sasa Kalajdzic all continuing their respective rehabilitation from injuries.

    Toti may have warranted keeping his starting spot after his recent performance against Villa while Raul Jimenez remains out of favour with the Wolves manager.

    Despite their Premier League status being guaranteed, Lopetegui is likely to go with the same side that won the recent Midlands derby as they look to finish the season on a high note.
