Ole Gunnar relishing centre-backs dilemma ahead of Wolves tie

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer is embracing the defensive dilemma he faces, as he prepares his side for the Premier League clash against Wolves on Monday night. 

The Norwegian will have all his defensive unit fit and available for selection, which is a 'perfect' dilemma going into the tricky tie. 

Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof started the 4-0 win in the opening match against Chelsea, and are expected to start at Molineux. 

The coach, however, has a plethora of a defensive army, with the experienced Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, and Marcos Rojo also available alongside Alex Tuenzebe. 

Eric Baily is the only unavailable defender for the former Manchester United star as revealed ahead of the tie. 

“They're all quality center-backs and I know that we will need quite a few of them,” he said. 

“With Eric’s injury, I've got six fit, which is maybe one too many to keep everyone involved, but then that's our job: to make the most of what we have.

”We've got loads of games and when you get your chance, [you have to] play well. Marcos, Phil, and Chris have been here for a long time and they've proven that they can do it.“

The Wolves clash is a tricky tie for the Old Trafford side, who lost both matches in their last two visits last season in the League and the FA Cup.
