Ronaldo captains United in Defeat against Wolves

Wolves got their first win against Manchester United at Old Trafford since 1980, with a faultless display.

Ralf Rangnick made two changes to the side that faced Burnley, with forgotten man, Phil Jones and injury-prone Raphael coming in for Eric Bailly and Maguire.

Wolves pinned back a United side that was captained by Cristiano Ronaldo for large swathes of the game, as the home side was restricted to just 6 shots, with only 2 of those shots on target all game. That is paltry when compared to the Visitor’s 19 shots, with 6 on target.

In addition, Bruno Lage’s men had and took 8 corner kicks, compared to United’s 3.

United will be flattered by the low scoreline, but it was only another great performance by De Gea and his defenders that kept the scoreline from being embarrassing.

With all of Wolves’ dominance, it took a poor clearance by Phil Jones late on for the visitors to beat the home side, with 35-year-old João Moutinho doing the honours.
