Manchester United finished third in Erik ten Hag’s first season last term, a result that means Champions League football returns to Old Trafford for the 2023/24 campaign. But, though revitalised, United still feel like a work in progress. Of the sides finishing in the top six last season they scored the fewest goals (58), with Marcus Rashford responsible for 17 strikes; his overall return of 30 goals across all competitions was Man Utd’s best since Robin van Persie in the 2012/13 season.

Wolves just about staved off relegation, ending in 13th place, but seven points above the drop zone. Head coach Julen Lopetegui was said to be frustrated with their summer transfer activity with only two signings completed and he was the first managerial casualty, being replaced by Gary O’Neil just a few days before the start of the campaign. If they’re not too careful then another relegation battle could be in their future. The once reliable Raúl Jiménez, who managed no Premier League goals last term, has left for Fulham (as has Adama Traore), while joint top-scorer Rúben Neves has departed for the riches of Saudi Arabian football.

André Onana is certain to make his Premier League debut for Manchester United here. The ball-playing goalkeeper succeeds David de Gea as United’s number one.

Mason Mount may feature. Rasmus Hojlund is likely to miss the match through injury.

The loss of Rúben Neves will undoubtedly hurt Wolves. Nathan Collins, Conor Coady and Raúl Jiménez are three other notable departures. Matt Doherty has returned following a disappointing Atlético Madrid stint, while Matheus Cunha has made his loan move permanent.
