Manchester United vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers - Football Match Report

For large swathes of the match on Saturday, Wolves were the better side, and were more than good value for their point, handed to them after Joao Moutinho cancelled out Fred's opener for United.

Mourinho mentioned the Swiss star while commenting on his team, Manchester United, facing Young Boys away from home on an artificial surface. Or even before that. They were in the game since the first minute, they played every ball, every second in the maximum of their intensity, their desire, and we didn't. But he did not really turn up. United, for his liking, simply do not play on the front foot almost as much as they should at home.

He is still being dispossessed too often, losing too many balls and when he is needed the most, like today, he tends to go missing.

Martial rightly hoped to start against Wolves, but Sanchez was fortunate to get selected, as he had been in the two previous games which saw victories at Burnley and Watford.

This was a match where we could see all the good and all the bad things from Paul Pogba.

Fred opened the scoring after 18 minutes, with a goal that owed everything to a selfless and clever assist from team-mate Paul Pogba. Wolves, on the other hand, remained positive and earned a deserved point. He scored 25, 17 and 30 in the same period at Arsenal and had managed a further eight by the time he sat down to play Glory, Glory Man United on a piano in January 2018 for a video used by the club to announce his arrival.

After three wins from three away games, United entered the match perhaps confident of a win, but it didn't materialise, something which Mourinho said was hard to understand.

Games against Wolves, West Ham and Newcastle offer a chance to close the gap on early leaders Liverpool and Chelsea but Mourinho has warned his players not to take their good form for granted. "We know we can do better".

But soon after, while on worldwide break, Pogba said: "I'm playing at United at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months". We have the advantage of having one year working to give the base of the team in a very tough competition that is the Championship - there is no better way to come to the Premier League.

Boss Nuno Espirito Santo, whose side have also drawn 1-1 against champions Manchester City this term, expressed his pride in what he had seen from his players.
