Phil Jones is back after five weeks out through illness while Jesse Lingard and Ander Herrera have been training after missing recent games with hamstring issues. Mason Greenwood will be assessed after illness.

Wolves’ 1-1 draw at Chelsea last weekend will fill them with confidence for another big match, but United should have enough quality to reach the semi-finals.
