Manchester United defeated Wolfhampton Wonderers 1-0 in the Saturday premier league match played on Sunday at Molineux Stadium.

The match wasn’t easy for the visitors. Mason Greenwood’s late strike earned Manchester United the win over Wolves at Molineux in a game marked by David de Gea’s stunning double save.

The build-up to Greenwood’s goal was not without controversy as Paul Pogba appeared to catch Ruben Neves only for Mike Dean to ignore the appeals of the midfielder.

United, who included Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho in the starting line-up for the first time, also had De Gea to thank for the victory after his extraordinary efforts to twice keep out Romain Saiss.

Wolves will rue their finishing as they remain without a point under new boss Bruno Lage but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side now find themselves third – with Cristiano Ronaldo on the way.
