Manchester United picked up their second win with a late 1 – 0 win over a determined but unlucky Wolves on Match Day 3 at the Molineux on Sunday evening.
Wolves started knocking on Manchester United’s goal from the second minute and the latter will be thankful for a couple of heroic saves from the Manchester United defence, most notably the double save from David De’Gea in the second half, just few minutes before the goal.
The day wasn’t for the host, who had their already expected goal saved by a stunning block from Wan-Bissaka in the second minute other saves were made by debutant Marcus Varane and then some wonderful heroics from David De’Gea that left the game leveled till Mason Greenwood eventually broke the deadlock in the 83rd minute.
Manchester United mostly played wide and failed in getting accurate shots at the Wolves No.1 . Portuguese genius Bruno Fernandes had sent the ball behind the net in the first half but that was ruled an offside, cutting his celebrations before he started.
However, the build up to Manchester United’s goal wasn’t without its question marks as Paul Pogba appeared to catch Ruben Neves with his boots in the build up but the referee ignored the calls and the ball ended up with Greenwood, who scored. The referee also handed Neves a yellow card for diving adding more salt to the injury.
Manchester United with the win move up to the third spot on the Premier League table with 7 points, having won their League opener with a 5 – 1 victory over Leeds United and Picked up a point in their visit to Southampton on Match Day 2.
