The Spaniard had problems moments later when he intervened after Nelson Semedo’s shot. Ultimately, however, also then he came out of the whole situation unscathed. Manchester United defended themselves in fragments with the entire team in their own half.

Phil Jones, who played the first official match for the “Czerwony Diabłów” team in almost two years, did very well in the host team. It was mainly thanks to him and De Gei that there was a goalless draw until the break, although the guests fired as many as 15 shots.

In the second part of the meeting, Ralf Rangnick’s players looked much better. Bruno Fernandes appeared on the pitch, among others, who in the 67th minute hit the crossbar from ten meters.

After a while, the goalkeeper of “Wolves” defeated Cristiano Ronaldo, but this goal was not recognized. The Portuguese was offside. These two situations woke Wolverhampton a bit.

In the following minutes, it was the guests who took the initiative. Saiss was close to opening the scoreboard on the 74th minute with a free kick. However, it only hit the bar.

Eight minutes later, “Wolves” had their way. Joao Moutinho gave a nice shot from outside the penalty area, giving his team the lead. As it turned out, it was the only goal in the game. It was in this situation that Jones acted badly.

In the 96th minute, the Red Devils still had a great opportunity to compensate for the free kick. Bruno Fernandes shot a strong shot at the opponents’ goal, but Jose Sa showed a great intervention then.

With a 1-0 win, Wolverhampton moved up to eighth place in the English Premier League table. Manchester United remained in seventh place.
