Manchester United take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in their latest Premier League fixture on Monday night and will be hoping to start the new year with three more points at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory over Burnley on Thursday and another win here will help them to keep up the pressure on fourth-place Arsenal.
Bruno Lage is enjoying a positive first season at the helm of Wolves, despite winning just one of his last five games, yet his side remain eighth.
However, they have endured a high-number of positive Covid-19 cases recently, meaning they haven’t played since their 0-0 draw with Chelsea on December 19.
United seem to have luck on their side with regards to injuries and Covid-19 cases in the squad, while Wolves could still be without seven of their players for this contest.

Ralf Rangnick has a fairly fit squad to choose from and will be further boosted by the return of Bruno Fernandes from his one match suspension.
Victor Lindelof tested positive for Covid-19 on Boxing Day, so it is likely that he will remain out for this fixture, while the same can be said for Paul Pogba (groin) and wantaway striker Anthony Martial.
As for Wolves, Bruno Lage’s side have overcome the majority of their Covid-19 cases but Fabio Silva may still be a doubt, while the game comes too early for Rayan Ait Nouri (groin).
Hee-Chan Hwang (thigh) and Willy Bolly (calf) have both recently joined Pedro Neto (knee), Jonny Otto (knee) and Yerson Mosquera (thigh) on the sidelines, with all five expected to be out for a further period of time.
