Solskjaer hints at retaining the same team that beat Chelsea for Wolves clash

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted at retaining the same squad that disposed of Chelsea in the opening match of the new Premier League season on Sunday. 

United were at their clinical best against their rivals, scoring four unanswered goals at Old Trafford courtesy of strikes from Marcus Rashford (two) and one each from Martial and new signing James. 

The Norwegian has now indicated that he might entrust the same team to do the job against one of their toughest opponents from last season. 

Wolves beat United twice at the Molineux Stadium, in the League and FA Cup, and will be looking to replicate the same form when they face off at the same grounds on Monday. 

“We’ve had a good week, good training week, a competitive week so hopefully we can have the same squad and people available unless something changes towards the end. There are still a few days until we play,” he said during a pre-match conference on Friday afternoon. 

United have few injury concerns, with their only worry being Eric Baily, who might not be back anytime soon after an injury he suffered against Spurs during a preseason friendly. 

Wolves, on the other hand, warmed up for the match with a 4-0 win over FC Pyunik in the Europa League action on Thursday night.
