Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Manchester United - Football Match Report

It's the first time Wolves have won consecutive games against Manchester United in all competitions since 1980 and leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team in fifth place and out of the Champions League places.

Solskjaer was clearly disappointed in his post-match comments to the media, but the boss had plenty of positive things to say about McTominay's display in the Midlands and recent form.

Solskjaer has insisted publicly that midfielder Paul Pogba will remain at United despite expected interest from Real Madrid, with the list of probable targets likely to see the club target younger players.

Undaunted and fielding a strong team despite the distraction of an FA Cup semifinal against Watford Sunday, Wolves quickly settled down on a cold and raucous night at Molineux and began creating plenty of chances of their own.

Solskjaer added: "When you're on a yellow you're always in danger if you go down, it's a yellow card".

Fulham were promoted to the top flight after beating Aston Vila in the playoff final, but despite USA owner Shahid Khan investing an estimated £100 million (US$131.74 million) in new players, the biggest spend by any promoted club, they struggled from the outset with manager Slavisa Jokanovic sacked in November past year.


Portuguese striker Diogo Jota hit a deserved equalizer from close range in the 25th minute after a nervy-looking Fred had lost control and Raul Jimenez threaded the ball into the area.

"I would take him (at United) all day, ' said Ferdinand during an interview with Goal. It's not easy to play against Man United". "They scored with their first chance after the sending off and you have to give them credit". We didn't want them to put pressure on us. "I was very pleased with the amount of chances, with the intent in the way we started the game and played", he said.

In mid-March, they were dumped out of the FA Cup by Nuno Espirito Santo's team.

"What more can you ask?"

"I give credit to United for how they shaped themselves, it was hard to recover the ball".
