As the Red Devils face Wolverhampton in the FA Cup on Saturday, let’s find out why we should definitely be the better team at the Molineux Stadium.
A shot at a trophy
While the Paris Saint-Germain tie has shown us that everything is possible when it comes to United in the Champions League, La Liga giants Barcelona will surely prove to be a bigger test for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men. Therefore, the Red Devils should go all-in in the FA Cup for a chance to end the season with a piece of silverware.
Last game before the break
The first international clashes of 2019 are upon us and Saturday’s FA Cup clash is United’s last game before a two-week break. Solskjaer and his team will have a luxury of selecting their strongest XI against Wolves on Saturday with the Red Devils not playing their next game until March 30 when they host Watford in the Premier League.
Sergio Romero is guaranteed to be included in United’s starting XI on Saturday and the Argentine’s record should feel the fans with optimism. After his latest clean sheet in a 2-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the shot-stopper boasts a record of conceding just 2 goals in 11 FA Cup games, a truly impressive record for a back-up goalkeeper.
Trio moving closer to comebacks
With Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial already back to full fitness, there were more good injury news for United on Friday. Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard were spotted with the rest of the squad at the Carrington training centre, suggesting that the trio could return to action against Wolves.
