United travel to Wolverhampton hoping to return with the three points on offer, a win would further enhance our chances of regaining the Premier League crown as we head down the home straight.

Vital Quotes:

The longer it goes on the longer the focus will remain on it. What am I talking about? That long unbeaten run!

Ahead of the game with Wolves, our Portuguese flyer, Nani, has offered a few thoughts on it, remarking to the media,

"I don`t know how long we can go on for but we hope to finish the season unbeaten. It will be very hard but we intend to win those last games as well."

Personally, I still don`t think it will happen.

Wolves Team News:

Mick McCarthy has no new injury concerns after the loss at Bolton in midweek.

Still on the side-lines, injured, are Guedioura, Hunt, Kightly and Mancienne.

Mick has no suspensions to worry about.

Player to watch: Kevin Doyle

Not having as prolific season as he has done in front of goal but still a danger to our defence.

United Team News:

After the 3-1 win over Aston Villa, Sir Alex Ferguson will be hoping to welcome back two members of his preferred starting eleven.

Rafael looks set to return after missing out due t concussion whilst Fletcher should return after an eye injury forced him off on Wednesday,

Another Regular, Ji-Sung Park, may be given further rest after his Asia Cup exertions.

Out injured are Hargreaves and Valenica still.

Gary Neville, having announced his immediate retirement in midweek, will also no longer be in the squad.

Player to watch: Dimitar Berbatov

Eclipsed by the performance of Wayne Rooney in the midweek win over Aston Villa, expect the Bulgarian to bounce back.

Match Facts & Stats

United have the edge in recent fixtures between the two sides having emerged victorious in the last six encounters with our last defeat against Wolves coming at Molineux in the opening month of 2004.

If United do win tomorrow, it will inflict a fourth successive defeat on Wolves, the third time this has happened this season for the side that has, in the Premier League, lost the most games.

Ref Watch:

The officials appointed for this game are - Michael Oliver (referee), Dave Bryan and Mick McDonough (assistants) and Mike Jones (fourth official)

Match Prediction:

Can Wolves be the side to end our unbeaten start to the Premier League season? I seriously doubt it. It would be a huge shock if Wolves were to beat us or even take a point off of us, even though our away form isn`t that hot. I`m tipping United to emerge victors by two clear goals.

Next Fixtures:

We continue our quest to regain the Premier League title next weekend with a clash against the great pretenders, Manchester City. You can`t beat a local derby can you!
