Here are our player ratings and the man of the match for today’s match
De Gea: Made a couple of crucial saves, such as the one on the 43rd minute. His pass to Fred was risky, but not completely his fault. 6/10
Lindelof: Was okay, but his pace didn’t help much. 6.5/10
Smalling: As well, was average and his pace didn’t help in the counter attacks. But he was able to mark Wolve’s striker before scoring the goal, the striker was in his back. Also, he scored an own goal. Was disastrous today. 3/10
Young: Reckless two yellow cards within five minutes, and very poor performance. 3/10
Shaw: Not as good as the previous match. 6/10
McTominay: Was good today, scored his first goal for Man United. 7.5/10
Pogba: Still not the Pogba of before the international break. It seems his concentration isn’t with Man United these days. 4.5/10
Fred: So poor, was at fault in losing the ball in a risky area and that led to a goal. However, he made an assist for McTominay’s first goal. 4/10
Diago Dalot: A decent performance, he should be starting regularly instead of Ashley Young. 7/10
Lingard: Wasn’t effective today, just at the beginning of the match made some effort such as on the 18th minute. 5.5/10
Lukaku: Poor as well, couldn’t convert the chances but was close to scoring in the last seconds of the first half. 5/10
Jones: His poor coverage and clearance led to the second goal. 3/10
Martial: Couldn’t do much. 5/10
Pereira: Couldn’t do much. 5/10
Man of the match: Clearly none of Manchester United players.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Manager): Failed to beat the Wolves again, and a second consecutive poor performance. 5/10
