Philip Jones is set to make his first Premier League appearance in almost two years tonight following an injury to Harry Maguire.
Jones’ last league game was in the 2-0 home defeat to Burnley on 22nd January 2020.
His last first team appearance in any competition came four days later when he scored in the 6-1 FA Cup away win at Tranmere.
The full extent of United captain Maguire’s injury is not yet known but it is enough to keep him out of tonight’s home game against Wolves.
With Victor Lindelof out of action having suffered a heart scare and a positive Covid test and Eric Bailly coming off injured in the 3-1 win over Burnley last time out it has left boss Ralf Rangnick with a dilemma.
He will give Bailly a fitness test today in the hope he can make it alongside Raphael Varane who has only returned to full fitness himself recently.
Rangnick could also drop Nemanja Matic back from central midfield into a centre-back spot.
