After losing away to PSV Eindhoven, three points against Wolfsburg is essential for Louis van Gaal unless Man United intend to pile the pressure on themselves with a trick trip to CSKA Moscow coming up in the group stage.

As for the new boots, Adidas are certainly getting their pennies worth this season with Man United’s players aren’t they? Hopefully they’ll all be scoring hat-tricks against Wolfsburg then.
In all seriousness, United have got to turn up and beat Wolfsburg on Wednesday. Anything other than three points will put a downer on United’s excellent form in the Premier League.
