United are managing the game really well here. They're controlling the ball, Matic and van de Beek are orchestrating in the engine room, and Diallo is dropping deep to evade the attentions of Coady. Wolves aren't going away, though, and Semedo drives them on here down the right...

62'

28' 

It's a shame that Traore is off now - Wolves were really finding a good rhythm, especially down their right flank - but Willian Jose is on now to add another focal point to the home attack.

Telles with a beautiful clipped ball in towards Elanga... but the youngster miscontrols it and the ball dribbles into the arms of Patricio.

"Only one Nuno [Espirito] Santo..."

15:34 
15:34 
15:22 
15:16 

Nothing to play for here today, for either side. United have secured second place, with the hosts in 12th-placed mediocrity, seven points behind 11th-placed Aston Villa.

15:16 
15:11 

It's wholesale changes for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer here, though, with one eye on the Europa League final on Wednesday, all the big guns sit out, with the only notable names on the bench being Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Scott McTominay, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.

15:10 

The hosts are in their 3-5-2, with United in a 4-2-3-1: The back three of Conor Coady, Willy Boly and Romain Saiss will contend with the United front three of Amad Diallo, Dan James and Anthony Elanga, with the young Swede expected to lead the line and challenge Coady directly through the middle. In midfield, Ruben Neves sits, with Juan Mata sat on top of him as the visitors' number 10. The double pivot of Donny van de Beek and Nemanja Matic will contend with Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker in the engine room, with Alex Telles facing Nelson Semedo and Adama Traore, and Brandon Williams up against Fabio Silva and Rayan Ait-Nouri. The United centre-halves are Eric Bailly and Axel Tuanzebe: both pacey and adept at dealing with the Spaniard Traore's speed in behind.

15:05 

Let's dissect the teams, then, on Nuno Espirito Santo's final game in charge...
