Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made six changes to his Manchester United lineup to face Wolves this evening.
United can end 2020 in second place in the Premier League with victory at Old Trafford against a side they notoriously struggle against.
The quality within United’s squad has afforded Solskjaer the chance to name another strong starting lineup while rotating from Saturday’s frustrating 2-2 draw at Leicester City.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka returns from injury at right-back and is joined in a back four alongside Eric Bailly, Harry Maguire and Alex Telles.
Lindelof was forced off injured against Leicester and misses out entirely tonight – but the full extent of his injury is still unknown.
Paul Pogba starts in the midfield axis with Nemanja Matic, with the indispensable Bruno Fernandes retaining his place in the more advanced role.
Anthony Martial drops to the bench after failing to make a profound impact at Leicester and Edinson Cavani comes in after his winning goal in the Carabao Cup quarter-final against Everton.
Cavani is supported in attack by Marcus Rashford and the returning Mason Greenwood.

Six changes for #MUFC, Solskjaer gifts Cavani a start after a few impressive performances. Rashford fit enough to start, Greenwood gets an opportunity to impress.
Plenty of options on the bench…should Solskjaer need it. #MUNWOL

Interesting that van de Beek is benched again, I'm starting to wonder if OGS doesn't think he and Bruno can play in the same team. Obviously Bruno has to start but this situation is untenable for van De Beek, he's not 19. I really like him but something is putting OGS off.

Looked at the #MUFC starting XI last few weeks and thought that it’s the first time in a very long by time, where there’s some strength in depth.

Despite no vdB again… Cavani, Rashford, Greenwood with Pogba and Fernandes behind is a potentially lethal front five
Would love to see Greenwood get a goal and end the year strong#mufc

Ole going with his best XI. Cavani up top, G'wood back on the right, Bailly in the back 4. Hoping Pogba stays in good form alongside Matic. Very promising start against a notoriously tough side for us @usareddevils
