Manchester United welcome Wolves to Old Trafford as the festive fixture list continues on Tuesday. 

United were forced to settle for a point against Leicester on Boxing Day as Axel Tuanzebe’s late own goal earned the Foxes a point. 

That result stretched Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side’s unbeaten run to eight games in the league, stretching back to their 1-0 loss to Arsenal on November 1.

Much like Leicester, Wolves needed a late leveller to earn a draw in their last game, Romain Saiss’ header securing a 1-1 draw with Tottenham at Molineux. 

Date, time and venue: Manchester United vs Wolves is scheduled for an 8pm kick-off on Tuesday, December 29, 2020. 

The game will be played behind closed doors at Old Trafford because of current coronavirus restrictions.

Live stream: Amazon Prime Video subscribers can stream the match live online or on mobile and tablet via the Prime Video app. 

Man United vs Wolves prediction: 2-0 home win.

The quick turnaround could see Manchester United’s wealth of attacking options prove telling against a Wolves side struggling badly for goals following the injury to Raul Jimenez and the sale of Diogo Jota. 

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks set to be without Aaron Wan-Bissaka again and with Victor Lindelof having hobbled off in the draw with Leicester, Axel Tuanzebe could be next in line to deputise at right-back. 

Further forward, Solskjaer will have the luxury of refreshing his midfield and attack, with Mason Greenwood, Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani among those who were only on the bench against the Foxes.

Man United predicted XI: De Gea; Tuanzebe, Maguire, Bailly, Telles; Matic, Pogba, Fernandes; Greenwood, Rashford, Cavani.
