Manchester United host Wolverhampton Wanderers in a game that the Red Devils simply must win if they’re to keep up momentum.
Before the match, Jose Mourinho’s selection options have been bolstered, with Phil Jones back from injury and ready to play once again. The manager confirmed the news in his pre-match press conference earlier today.
Jones, who picked up the injury in the game against Spurs, has been missing for the last few fixtures, but now he’s fit and raring to go once again.

However, he may find it difficult to break into the team. Chris Smalling has been excellent recently, while Victor Lindelof has been showing some good form alongside the Englishman.
I always feel it’s the same old story with Jones. He comes back from injury, plays a good few games, then gets hurt again. How many chances does he get?
Jones is 26 now, he’s no longer a youngster. It’s at this stage in his career where he should be playing week-in-week-out as an established player. At this point, he’s still yet to do exactly that; even though big things were expected from him when Sir Alex Ferguson signed him from Blackburn Rovers.
Will he play this weekend? I doubt it, but he may well feature against Derby County on Tuesday.
