The Red Devils’ only goal was scored by Juan Mata in the 67th minute. The Spanish midfielder was supported by Anthony Martial who passed the ball to him. The Spaniard was through on the goal and lobbed the ball over goalkeeper John Ruddy, onto the goal with much ease.

The Wolves were unable to repeat their last season’s FA Cup victory over United. Pedro Neto’s goal could have opened the score line for the Wolves in the 10th minute but the goal was overturned by the VAR owing to a handball by Raul Jimenez.

Although the Red Devils managed to beat the visitors, there are a lot of concerns that they need to address. Their build up play was too slow and had to toil for large durations of the match. Martial and Brandon Williams were providing an outlet for the United on the left-hand side but a poor midfield stopped United from increasing their lead with Nemanja Matic and Fred struggling against Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves. Another cause of concern for the hosts was Marcus Rashford’s injury who was brought on as a substitute for Daniel James in the second half only to go off the ground 16 minutes later.

The Wolves fought hard to win the match with the pace of Neto and Traore appearing dangerous for the hosts. Their early goal which was unawarded by the VAR surely cost them the match against the home side which was clearly not at its best.
