Man Utd player ratings vs Wolves
David de Gea – 7
Made a fine save from Romain Saiss in the first half , denying him again with a quick reaction in the second half, although the Wolves man was offside anyway.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka – 6
Was a passenger for much of the game, didn’t get forward enough as United looked for a breakthrough.
Harry Maguire – 6
A clumsy foul from the United skipper was almost punished with the resultant free-kick but was steady after the break.
Eric Bailly – 6
A careless moment played United into trouble but made some good interceptions later in the game. Almost set up a winner but Cavani was ruled offside.

Alex Telles – 6
Tried to attack Wolves in the first half and was somewhat unfortunate to be subbed at half-time.
Paul Pogba – 6
Steady in his defensive work but didn’t catch fire going forward, other than one decent shot which forced a save from Rui Patricio.
Nemanja Matic – 7
Quietly and effectively went about his job protecting United’s defence.
Bruno Fernandes – 7
Did his best to pull the strings behind the front three, but United can’t afford to always rely so heavily on their star man.

Mason Greenwood – 6
Fine cross for Fernandes for United’s best chance of the first half, but other than that he struggled to have an impact on the game.
Edinson Cavani – 5
The striker was isolated and suffered from a lack of service as Wolves frustrated United. Had the ball in the net from Bailly’s header but was ruled offside.
Marcus Rashford – 7
Not at his electric best, his threat was snuffed out by a resolute Wolves defence for much of the game but he popped up with a last-gasp, deflected winner.
Luke Shaw (for Telles, 45) 6.
Anthony Martial (for Greenwood, 64) 6.
