LIVE UPDATES: Wolves vs Man Utd

Hello good evening and welcome to another match day in the English Premier League, we are entering into the homestretch and more than ever every points counts as the games come in thick and fast.

New permanent Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes a swift return to Molineux - the venue for his side's surprise FA Cup quarter-final defeat - tonight.

Wolves created a relentless intensity against the same opponents in mid-March, with quick-fire efforts from Raul Jimenez - said to be on the brink of completing a club-record £25million switch to Wolves - and Diogo Jota rendering Marcus Rashford's stoppage-time goal a mere consolation. A red card shown to Victor Lindelof was overturned by VAR.

Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves followed up that memorable win after the international break with a hugely disappointing 2-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Burnley, while United, fresh off handing Solskjaer a full-time three-year contract, laboured to an unconvincing 2-1 victory over Watford at Old Trafford thanks to Rashford and Anthony Martial.

"They made it difficult for us and it seemed as though we were still on holiday or the international break," the Norwegian said after a sub-par outing.

Solskjaer will no doubt demand a performance from his team after that last trip to Molineux and a somewhat suspect display on Saturday to get his permanent reign properly off and running and perhaps return to the top four, depending on results at Anfield and the Emirates over the next couple of days.
