The Red Devils host Gary O’Neil’s Wolves at Old Trafford on Monday night as they look to make a winning start to the 2023-24 campaign.

United will be without summer signing Hojlund for the match and the Dutchman says that it could be a while before we see the Denmark international feature.

Ten Hag has also confirmed that Martial is available for selection despite not playing a single a minute in pre-season due to a hamstring problem.

‘We are not in a rush [over Hojlund],’ Ten Hag said. ‘We know we are without him, we have a strong team and the position is covered.

‘We don’t rush. It is about him being in the right level and then we have to integrate him in training and then we will bring him into the games.

‘We take our time. It is not about winning in this moment, it is about winning in the long term.

‘We are very confident we found the right striker, but he needs time. Time to integrate and now he is now unavailable, it delays the process.

‘I’m quite calm, composed in this situation, because Rashy is very good as a striker, we have seen it last Saturday.

‘Anthony Martial is available as well. Jadon Sancho can play there as well, he did it in pre-season very well. The squad can deal with it, as I already said this. There is a strategy behind it.’
