Manchester United would be eager to register back to back victories in the Premier League as they take on a difficult Wolves side at the Molineux.

Manchester United know that they cannot lose their advantage in the race for the top four as they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in their second league game of the season. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side started the new season strongly following a 4-0 mauling of Chelsea at home.

However, the work has just started for the Red Devils who have a habit of being inconsistent away from home. That was the case last season and if this habit isn’t killed, it would affect their top four aspirations.

The club cannot afford to lose this game and needs to continue putting together as many Ws on the columns as possible.

Wolves were their bogey team last season, drawing at Old Trafford and registering a home win. Nuno Espirito Santo’s teams are very well-organized with star striker Raul Jiminez quite a handful further up the pitch.

Here we take a look at some players who need to start the game against the Wolves on Monday night.

Harry Maguire

Despite a strong performance on his Manchester United debut, the jury is still out given the amount of money the Red Devils paid for his services. In the game against Chelsea, Maguire was confident on the ball and marshaled the defense to perfection alongside Victor Lindelof.

The game against Wolves is going to be a real test for the England international who must showcase that he is going to be a consistent and reliable presence at the heart of the defense for his new team.
