Alexis Sanchez and the other Manchester United stars that could miss Wolves clash
For the third time in 2019, Manchester United make the trip down the M6 to face Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

Details: Manchester United centre backs have scarcely been out of the news in the summer window. Harry Maguire made his debut in the win over Chelsea, but Bailly is set to be on the sidelines for the forseeable.
The Ivorian had surgery on his knee at the end of July, with Solskjaer not expecting the defender to return until around Christmas.
Details: The Chilean has been the source of constant speculation in the window, with many expecting the former Gunner to leave Old Trafford.
Solskjaer has confirmed that Sanchez remains in his plans, despite a torrid start to his United career. On Sanchez, Solskjaer said: “Alexis has come in and trained well. Of course, he’s four or five weeks behind the boys and he’s not played apart from a one behind-closed-doors [friendly] here.”
He missed the Chelsea game, but he could earn a place on the bench at Molineux.
Timothy Fosu-Mensah is still a long term absentee after suffering an injury on-loan at Fulham, although his inclusion would be unlikely regardless.
