Wolves 2 – 1 Manchester United Football Highlights
Key Moments Recap :
Goal : 13′ 0 – 1 Scott McTominay
Shaw and Lingard combine nicely down the left, drawing the Wolves defence out before the ball is played inside to Fred, who offloads it to McTominay. The 22-year-old takes the invitation to shoot and fizzes a crisp low drive beyond Patricio from 25 yards to give United a deserved lead.
Goal : 25′ Diogo Jota 1 – 1
Seconds after Jimenez blazes a shot wide at the near post, he tees up his strike partner for Wolves’ equaliser. United have themselves to blame as De Gea plays it out from the back and Fred is caught in possession. Two passes later and Wolves are through on goal as Jimenez slots Diogo Jota in behind, and he clinically fires past De Gea.
Red Card : 57′ Ashley Young
Young lunges in on Jota after mis-controlling the ball and picks up a second booking. Two yellows make a red, and it means Ashley Young is the 100th recipient of a red card from referee Mike Dean.
Goal : 77′ Chris Smalling (o.g.) 2 – 1
Jonny’s cross from the left is met by Jimenez, who cushions the ball into the path of Dendoncker. He’s confronted by Chris Smalling who turns the ball into his own net while under pressure from the Belgian to out Wolves ahead.
