Manchester United can temporarily break into the top 4 of the English Premier League if they can muster a victory against Wolves on Saturday.

United resumed league duty on Boxing Day with an impressive 3-0 demolition of Nottingham Forest, leaving them in fifth with 29 points.

Meanwhile, Wolves registered just their third win of the season with a dramatic 2-1 win at Goodison Park against Everton.

The win saw them come out of the bottom spot and now sit in 18th place with 13 points, needing another win to move out of the relegation zone.

Wolves have a busy start to the new year, facing Aston Villa in the league on January 4 before taking on Liverpool and Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup and EFL Cup respectively.

Wolves were also victorious in their last match with Man United back in January, running out 1-0 winners at Old Trafford and are hoping to repeat the shock.

Attacker Marcus Rashford has managed eight goal contributions in the league for United and seems to be the away sides biggest threat in this game.

The Red Devils have the fifth-best away record in the Premier League this season, picking up 13 points from eight matches, but they have conceded 16 times.

Can Wolves repeat their recent success at Old Trafford or will Man United have an easy win in the early kick off?
