Manchester United are trying to stay top of the table while Wolves are trying to stay out of the drop zone.

Manchester United are in first place in the Premier League, having finally caught up to Manchester City last week. It's become the norm in recent seasons; Manchester United starts slow, shows signs of life during the holidays, and looks like one of the best teams in the world come March. This is terrible timing for Wolverhampton Wanderers, who are one of the teams in England's five-way race for three relegation places.

Wolves are very thin in the center of midfield due to injuries. Jamie O'Hara and Nenad Milijas are both doubtfuls while Karl Henry is definitely out. David Davis and David Edwards started last week, and were not terribly effective in a loss to relegation rivals Blackburn Rovers. Manchester United might not have Phil Jones available, but everyone else other than Nemanja Vidic is fit.

Game Date/Time: Sunday, March 18. 2012

Venue: Molineaux, Wolverhampton, England

TV: FOX Soccer Channel (USA - English), FOX Deportes (USA - Spanish), Sky Sports 1 (UK)
