Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is at the Manchester United wheel on a permanent basis – but will he be able to guide the Red Devils into the top four?

A trip to Molineux is about as difficult as away days come, given that Nuno Espírito Santo’s side have emerged as one of the trickiest teams outside of the Premier League’s elite this season.

They certainly proved to be a difficult nut to crack when they produced a superb display to knock United out of the FA Cup as recently as last month.

The hosts’ preferred 3-5-2 system did plenty of damage to United on that day, but Statman Dave has spotted a way in which United can reclaim the upper hand.

It involves a tactical tweak that should – in theory – allow United’s midfielders to nullify Wolves’ advanced full-backs.

However, putting such a ploy into practice is far from simple with Wolves set to be determined to bounce back from their surprise defeat to Burnley and solidify seventh place.
