United have had a busy summer transfer window, bringing in new signings such as Rasmus Hojlund, Mason Mount, and Andre Onana. The Red Devils will be hoping that these new signings can help them improve on their disappointing 2022-23 season, which saw them finish sixth in the Premier League.
Wolves, meanwhile, have also made some good signings in the summer, including Hwang Hee-chan and Yerson Mosquera. The Wolves will be hoping to build on their impressive 2022-23 season, which saw them finish seventh in the Premier League and reach the Europa League quarter-finals.
