Man Utd team news: How Utd will line up against Wolves with Daniel James pushing for starting role tonight

0


MANCHESTER UNITED are looking to build on their stunning Premier League start after they thrashed Chelsea 4-0 at Old Trafford last weekend.

The Red Devils face Wolves at Molineux on tonight with Nuno Espirito Santo looking for his side’s first win of the season after their 0-0 draw at Leicester on opening weekend.

How Man Utd could line up against Wolves

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed his side are in good shape ahead of the Midlands clash and expects to have the same players at his disposal as he had for Chelsea.

Welsh winger Dan James had a dream start to his Old Trafford career when he came off the bench to score United’s fourth in the rout.

YOUTHFUL EXPECTATION

And James, 21, could even start against Wolves as Solskjaer looks to build a team full of youth.

The Welshman replaced Andreas Pereira on 74 minutes against Chelsea last Sunday and it is the Brazilian who he could replace in the starting XI.

James went berserk after his strike deflected off Blues’ defender Emerson, curled past Kepa and nestled in at the far post.

The 21-year-old completed a brilliant couple of days when he signed a mega money boot deal with Adidas just days after his debut strike.

And his older brother Alex issued an apology to his footballer sibling after he benched him in his fantasy football team.

James nearly missed out on his dream Old Trafford moment having nearly signed for Leeds in January and was even pictured holding up a Leeds shirt.

Solskjaer also confirmed he expects Chilean flop Alexis Sanchez to step up to the plate this season.


The Norwegian said: “We expect him to come good at this club.

“He’s part of our squad and he’s a very, very good player.

“He’s just had a couple of weeks training, three weeks now, so he’s a few weeks behind the rest, but he’s very close to being part of the squad.”
