Confirmed: Manchester United v Wolfsburg line-ups: Wilson among substitutes

Manchester United are looking to kickstart their Champions League campaign.

Manchester United are looking for their first Champions League win of the season as they host Wolfsburg.

The Red Devils suffered a disappointing 2-1 away loss to PSV Eindhoven a fortnight ago, will be hoping their first Champions League group stage game at Old Trafford in two seasons will bring a better result.

Opponents Wolfsburg are likely to be a tough proposition, yet will still be smarting from conceding five goals in nine minutes to Robert Lewandowski a week ago.

Familiar faces to Premier League fans will include former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner, and ex-Chelsea ace Andre Schurrle.

English sides have suffered a poor start in the Champions League to date this season, losing five of a possible six matches.

United need the win, but could also have one eye on the weekend's clash with Arsenal, if they are fortunate enough to build up a commanding lead.
