What are the managers saying ahead of Wolves vs Manchester United?

Nuno Espirito Santos, Wolves: "It's a new game, for sure, totally different to what we did [against Manchester United] in the past.

"We know we're going to face a very tough opponent - fantastic players, all over the place. We want to compete. We want to play."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United: "They were two tough games last season; we knew that because they are so hard to break down, they lie low, defend deep and are very good at counter-attacking.

"They have pace up-front with Jota and Jimenez who are two of the quickest forwards in the league, deceivingly quick.

"Those two up-front will always cause you bother, especially when they've got the passing ability of [Ruben] Neves, [Joao] Moutinho, and [Conor] Coady from the back.

"We experienced bad times there last season so we know that we've got to improve, but we are better now.

"We've got to be precise, we know we won't get a lot of opportunity to counter-attack.

"We're going to have to be good on the ball, be patient and create enough openings."
