However United's severe injury list is easing, with Juan Mata and Ander Herrera both likely to feature at Molineux.

Anthony Martial also returned as a substitute for Sunday's 2-0 defeat at Arsenal.

The Red Devils were recently without 10 players amid a crippling injury crisis – not that it had a big impact on their results, with several previously untried youngsters part of the squad that beat PSG 3-1 in the Champions League last week.

England international Lingard is back in training but the Manchester Evening News report that he won't be brought back into action until after the international break.

Definitely out this weekend are Ashley Young (suspended), Alexis Sanchez (knee) and Antonio Valencia (calf).

Phil Jones hasn't played for a month due to illness and Matteo Darmian has also been out ill of late.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said after Sunday's game, when asked if he would prioritise competitions when it came to rotating his squad: "No, we don't have to choose with injuries we've had lately.

"That's given us a great chance to give players playing time and game-time and they're coming back maybe for Wolves but after the international break we've got a full squad fit and the ones who've come in when the regulars have been injured have done really well, so we'll be ready for that."
