While waiting for Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United sorely missed an idea and brought back an almost miraculous success from Molineux Stadium in Wolverhampton (1-0) this Sunday, during the third day of the Premier League. Faced with inspired Wolves in all areas except in the finish, the teammates of Raphaël Varane, who was playing his first game with the Red Devils, suffered for a good part of the game. But a flash from Mason Greenwood, in the last ten minutes, saved Manchester United.
Nevertheless, the man of the match, on the Mancunian side, is undoubtedly David De Gea. The Spanish goalkeeper, who at least has seen the time of this match at its best, has spent the afternoon saving his team. Facing Raul Jimenez early in the match, but even more so in the second half, he was an impassable bulwark. He notably made a fantastic double save against Romain SaÃ¯ss, twenty minutes from time on a corner.
The rest of the time, Francisco TrincÃ £ o and Adama TraorÃ © dribbled and accelerated, but each time lacked precision in the last move. Greenwood, he was more clinical, although he can thank JosÃ © Sa, the goalkeeper of Wolvehampton, not very clear on the strike of the young Englishman. Manchester United, above all, should not forget the weak play offered for 80 minutes.
Apart from a goal denied to Fernandes for a logical offside and a strike from that same Greenwood close to the post, just before the break, there wasn’t much. thing from the Red Devils. Jadon Sancho, tenured for the first time in his new colors, did not bring what was expected of him in attack, nor did Edinson Cavani, too discreet when it comes into play.
With this success, Manchester still reunites with Liverpool and Chelsea at the top of the table. Solskjaer’s men are in third place, behind Tottenham and West Ham. The Wolves, on the other hand, are sinking into a difficult situation. After three games against Leicester, Tottenham and United, Wolves are producing some play but still haven’t scored a goal or scored a single point.
