EDINSON CAVANI could again lead the line for Manchester United alongside Cristiano Ronaldo for Monday’s clash against Wolves.
The Red Devils welcome the Midlands outfit to Old Trafford as Ralf Rangnick’s side look to win back-to-back games following Thursday’s 3-1 win over Burnley.
And the German gaffer is likely to keep his 4-2-2-2 formation with United unbeaten since he replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the Theatre of Dreams.
Rangnick is expected to change up his team with playmaker Bruno Fernandes available for selection after he missed the fixture against Wolves due to suspension.
Speaking on Friday, the ex-RB Leipzip magager said: “We have Bruno back against Wolves and quite a few options. Up front we have enough other alternatives.”
Centre-back Eric Bailly was forced off against Bruno Lage’s team due to fatigue, and he will now jet off to Cameroon to feature in the Africa Cup of Nations.
Though the game could come too soon for defender Victor Lindelof, who has recently recovered from coronavirus.
However Rangnick has stated that he should be physically ready to be in contention.

In his pre-match press conference, he remarked: “I hope that Victor could be back.
“Under normal circumstances, if the next test is negative, the PCR test is negative, he should be able to come back for this game.
“He has no symptoms so he should have no physical problems for that game.”
Here SunSport takes a look at how United could start against Wolves.
Arguably the club’s player of the season, Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea will surely keep his place between the sticks.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is likely to slot in at right-back, with Luke Shaw to keep his place down the left.
Raphael Varane could come in for Bailly to partner skipper Harry Maguire in the heart of defence.
Fred then could replace defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic in the starting XI to play alongside Scott McTominay.
Mason Greenwood may be dropped for Fernandes, with Jadon Sancho to yet again feature in the line-up.
And Uruguay international Cavani could once again spearhead the United attack alongside Ronaldo.
