Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester United

15th March 2019, 15:02 by James Mason

Wolves welcome Manchester United to Molineux on Saturday for a blockbuster FA Cup quarter-final clash.

Wolves are on a two-game unbeaten run heading into the contest, having breezed past relegation-threatened Cardiff City 2-0 at Molineux before drawing 1-1 with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Nuno Espirito Santo's men are unbeaten in their last six matches at home in all competitions - winning five and drawing one - although they were thumped 5-0 by the Red Devils the last time they met at Molineux in March 2012.

English centre-back Ryan Bennett is available for selection, despite currently serving a two-match Premier League ban, and could replace Morocco international Romain Saiss.

Mexico international Raul Jimenez notched his 12th league goal of the season against the Blues last time out and he is set to partner Diogo Jota up front as the duo continue to flourish together.

United suffered their first domestic loss under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last time out, going down 2-0 at Arsenal, and the visitors will be eager to get back to winning ways in the West Midlands.

The Red Devils, who have been drawn against Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals, were on a nine-game winning run away from home before that defeat at the Emirates.

Belgium international Romelu Lukaku will be given a late fitness test as he is struggling with a sore foot while full-back Ashley Young is unavailable due to suspension.

Centre-back Phil Jones is fit after illness, while Jesse Lingard and Ander Herrera have returned to training and could be involved.
