Wolves team news
Wolves have no injury concerns going into their encounter with United.
They made nine changes for their Europa League tie in midweek, so most of their first-choice starters will be well rested.
New signing Pedro Neto, aged 19, was one of the nine players to come into the side against Armenian side FC Pyunik and scored on his debut.
Man Utd team news
Forward Alexis Sanchez will not be involved as he continues to build his fitness levels after sustaining a hamstring injury on Copa America duty with Chile.
Eric Bailly and Tim Fosu-Mensah (both knee) remain sidelined with their injuries.
Summer signings Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James are vying to make their second competitive appearances for their new club.

United got their season off to the perfect start with a 4-0 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford last weekend. The Red Devils were unbeaten during pre-season and will hope to keep their run going at Molineux.
