The hosts managed to keep the pressure from Wolves who looked a deadly side as Adama Traore kept giving Man United defence some problems at the back.

Wolves almost got what could have been a lead through a 19th-minute corner, only for David De Gea to shove the ball away after Doherty headed a looping ball towards the back post.

Fernandes exhibited some loads of promises through a 28th-minute freekick which he, unfortunately, fired above the goalpost.

United finally got numbers forward, but they could not find that final pass, though Fernandes was still doing the magic with his fine passes.

Traore was looking more dangerous towards the first-half stoppage time, holding his shoulder after a tussle on the ball with a couple of defenders including Maguire.

With the second half underway, Fernandes was booked by the referee and United's call for a penalty in the 56th minute was ruled out by VAR as Moutinho accidentally put his hands up to protect his face as Fred shot.
