Manchester United will be keen to continue their recent good form when they welcome Wolves to Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon. Here is the line-up I think Jose Mourinho will go with:

Goalkeeper: David De Gea has been excellent for United once again this season and he’s certain to be one of the first names on the team sheet every week so he’ll start between the sticks this weekend.

Defence: Antonio Valencia didn’t travel to Switzerland for Wednesday night’s Champions League win over Young Boys as Mourinho didn’t want to risk him on the artificial pitch but he’s expected to return at right-back. Diogo Dalot impressed on his debut but the youngster should make way on Saturday.

Luke Shaw returned from concussion with a solid outing last night so he should retain his place at left-back meaning Ashley Young may have to make-do with a place on the bench. Victor Lindelof and Chris Smalling are likely to continue to build a partnership in the middle of defence with Eric Bailly once again a substitute.

Midfield: Nemanja Matic is ruled out due to suspension following his sending off against Watford last weekend so Marouane Fellaini is expected to be recalled in midfield after putting in some impressive displays recently.

Fred should keep his place ahead of the likes of Ander Herrera and Scott McTominay in midfield while Paul Pogba is certain to start once again after his Man of the Match performance against Young Boys.

Attack: There will be at least one change in attack as Marcus Rashford will serve the second of his three-match suspension having been sent off against Burnley earlier this month. Jesse Lingard should therefore come in after being rested against Young Boys.

Romelu Lukaku should once again lead the line up front but it will be interesting to see who starts on the left side of attack. Anthony Martial took his opportunity after scoring on a rare start last night so the Frenchman will be hoping he’s done enough to retain his place but I think Alexis Sanchez will still be recalled with Martial dropping to the bench.

Here is how we think United will line-up:
