The final match of game week 2 sees Manchester United travelling to the Molineux to face a dangerous Wolves side as the Red Devils look to build upon their opening day thrashing of Chelsea.

The hosts had the better of Manchester United the two times the teams met at the Molineux last season. Nuno Espirito Santo and his men will be looking to get their first win of this season after a stalemate at the King Power Stadium against Leicester City on the opening day of the season.

The visitors are on a high after dismantling Chelsea at Old Trafford in the first high profile fixture of the new season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping not to have a repeat of last year after a defeat to Wolves ended the dream start to the Norweigan's managerial career at Old Trafford.
