Wolves vs Man United: Premier League – LIVE!

United announced a sensational return for one of the club’s favourite sons on Friday after it had initially looked as if the Portuguese superstar was heading to rivals Manchester City.

There is no second debut for Ronaldo just yet as the Red Devils look to get back to winning ways after following an opening day rout of rivals Leeds with a disappointing draw at Southampton.

If they avoid defeat today, United will surpass Arsenal’s Premier League record of 27 consecutive away matches unbeaten.

They come up against a Wolves side that are yet to get a point on the board under new boss Bruno Lage following successive 1-0 defeats against Leicester and Tottenham.

However, they did thrash Championship strugglers Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup in midweek.

Live updates


Wolves looking deadly on the break

12mins: These Wolves hunt in packs on the break (sorry). But truly, they are a dangerous bunch when transitioning from defence to attack. Traore rides the tackle from Pogba, skips past Fred to set up Jimenez to his left, who cuts inside onto his right foot but his shot is blocked by Varane.

And there’s another shot from Joao Moutinho on the volley following a cross from Jiminez.

They’re all over United!


How have Wolves not scored there?

6mins: It’s another break for the home side and frankly they should be ahead. A United corner is sent swiftly upfield and Trincao brushes off Fred who falls on the floor (not having a great start is Fred). The low shot beats De Gea but a flying Wan-Bissaka is there to prevent the net from bulging. Sensational clearance and United are lucky to be level.


Early chance for Wolves

3mins: A sloppy pass from Fred is picked up by Traoure who marauds up the pitch – almost the length of the field. It’s a two on two and he slips it right to Jiminez who neither bangs it nor places it and it;s a relatively easy save for De gea with his feet.


United love a change of strip, don’t they?

1min: This is the third different kit Manchester United have worn in three league games. We’re sure this has nothing to do with flogging merchandise at the super store at Old Trafford.


Ole’s at the wheel for the 100th time

It’s a century for United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he takes charge of the club for the 100th time.

Avoid defeat today and he’ll set an English record for the most consecutive unbeaten matches away from home.

Shaw on Ronaldo

“I feel like the news has given the club a massive lift,” he told Sky Sports.

“He has been one of the best players in the world for a number of years now. We can all learn from him.”


Solskjaer on signing Ronaldo

“Hopefully we can get the paper work sorted and announce it,” he told Sky Sports.

“He is a great player, a great human being. I’m excited to keep building this squad. He will bring something completely different.

“Hopefully Cristiano can come in and show what he has done in his career. I am sure he likes all the talk about being old. Make it personal and he will show what he can do.”

Two Brunos

Fernandes isn’t the only Bruno in town today.

New Wolves manager Bruno Lage is still looking for his first points – and goals – since being appointed.

Team news

So, Raphael Varane comes in for a debut and Jadon Sancho is handed a first start. United really have had a good summer.

Daniel James starting is a surprise, and will be desperate to impress given the fresh competition for places at the club.
