Man United 1-0 Wolves: Red Devils steal the win late on

0

Marcus Rashford’s deflected stoppage-time goal moved Manchester United second in the Premier League with a 1-0 win over Wolves.

The game was heading for a dull goalless draw as Wolves frustrated United for 93 minutes, before Rashford’s left-footed effort came off Romain Saiss and wrongfooted Rui Patricio.

The best chance of the first half had fallen to Bruno Fernandes, but he could not turn home Mason Greenwood’s wicked cross at close range as Patricio saved, while David de Gea denied Saiss’ near-post flick at the other end.

United thought they had broken the deadlock with 20 minutes remaining when Edinson Cavani turned home a loose ball from a corner, but he was offside, and VAR’s review of a potential Conor Coady handball in the same action came back in favour of Wolves.

United were largely kept at bay by a youthful Wolves side, but Rashford grabbed the winner to move them to within two points of leaders Liverpool in the Premier League having won four from six just 21 days after crisis talk at Old Trafford following their Champions League exit. Wolves stay 12th, eight points off the top four.
