Harry Maguire has faced criticism (Martin Rickett/PA) (PA Wire)

Manchester United will host Wolves at Old Trafford on Monday in a mid table clash.

United have been faced with criticism of late, especially captain Harry Maguire and interim manager Ralf Rangnick has defended the star.

He said: “Our problem was, again, that we allowed too many transitional moments, and this is not only a problem of the centre of the centre-backs, it’s a problem of the whole team that it starts up front. And you can speak also about the role of the No 10 in that kind of formation.

“So I don’t think it makes sense to speak about the individual performance of players. We need to get better as a team.”

Here’s all you need to know about the match.

When is it?

The match will kick off at 5.30pm on Monday, 3 Janaury at Old Trafford.

United may not be the team they once were but they should be able to come away with a win in front of a home crowd. Wolves have put up a fight this season but results haven’t quite gone their way and the fixture at Old Trafford will play out the same way. United 2-0 Wolves.
