MANCHESTER UNITED are set to be without Harry Maguire for Monday's clash against Wolves with Phil Jones set to play his first Premier League game in two years.

The Red Devils welcome the Midlands outfit to Old Trafford as Ralf Rangnick's side look to win back-to-back games following Thursday's 3-1 win over Burnley.

And the German gaffer is likely to keep his 4-2-2-2 formation with United unbeaten since he replaced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the Theatre of Dreams.

But in a blow for United, skipper Maguire has picked up an injury, which could see Jones take his place in the line-up.

The former Blackburn ace, who has been linked with a loan switch to Benfica this month, hasn't featured in the top-flight since the 2-0 home defeat to Burnley in 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.

Victor Lindelof is unlikely to replace Maguire in the line-up having only JUST recovered from coronavirus.

Meanwhile Eric Bailly is a doubt after being forced off against Sean Dyche's side last week due to fatigue.

Rangnick was already expected to change up his team with playmaker Bruno Fernandes available for selection after he missed the fixture against Burnley due to suspension.

Speaking on Friday, the ex-RB Leipzig manager said: "We have Bruno back against Wolves and quite a few options. Up front we have enough other alternatives."

Here SunSport takes a look at how United could line-up at the Theatre of Dreams should Jones be including in the starting XI.

Arguably the club's player of the season, Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea will surely keep his place between the sticks.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is likely to slot in at right-back, with Luke Shaw to keep his place down the left.

Raphael Varane could come in for Bailly while Jones could replace Maguire in the heart of defence.

Fred could then replace defensive midfielder Nemanja Matic in the starting XI to play alongside Scott McTominay.

Mason Greenwood may be dropped for Fernandes, with Jadon Sancho to yet again feature in the line-up.

And Uruguay international Edinson Cavani could once again spearhead the United attack alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
