Mason Greenwood struck a late winner as Manchester United set a new record of 28 Premier League away matches unbeaten after a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Wolves.
The Red Devils rode their luck for long spells as the home side created the better chances but they made Bruno Lage’s men pay for their profligacy when Greenwood surged in from the right and drilled a low shot beyond Jose Sa 10 minutes from time.
It saw the United No.11 become only the second teenager to score in his team’s first three Premier League games of the season, after Robbie Fowler for Liverpool in 1994-95.
Wolves can only blame themselves for a third straight 1-0 defeat and they should have been ahead inside the opening 10 minutes with Raul Jimenez and Trincao both failing to make the most of excellent openings.
The hosts had presented new signing, Hwang Hee-chan to the Molineux fans prior to kick off and he would no doubt have been wishing he was part of the action as they continued to pass up some promising situations on the counter attack with Adama Traore particularly dangerous.
United handed a debut to Raphael Varane and he acquitted himself well with typical grace and quality as he helped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men claim a first clean sheet in 11 matches in all competitions. David De Gea also deserves huge praise for the shut out as he made a remarkable double-stop to somehow deny Romain Saiss 21 minutes from time.
United will now head into the international break in buoyant mood before hosting Newcastle on Saturday September 11. Winless Wolves visit Watford desperate to pick up their first point under Lage.
