Manchester United are cruising in the league as they went on top of the table after their latest 3-0 victory over Sunderland. David de Gea kept his second consecutive clean sheets in a row and the Latest bookie free bets back the English club as favourites to seal their fourth victory in a row.
What has been impressive so far for Louis van Gaal’s side is their defence. The Old Trafford club have conceded only five goals and are share the top spot with Tottenham for conceding less number of goals in the league.
The key for them in the backline has been the centre-back pairing of Chris Smalling and Daley Blind. The England international has been exceptional this season, while the former Ajax man’s vision in helping to move the ball forward has been instrumental.
The former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager will be hoping to seal his first Champions League victory as United manager against Wolfsburg. Memphis Depay’s return to PSV Eindhoven ended in a disappointment for his current club as they lost 2-1.
In addition to this, Luke Shaw suffered a horror injury and the left-back will be out of action for a long spell.

Winger Vieirinha, centre-back duo of Felipe Aliste Lopes and Robin Knoche are out of the midweek clash against United.
