Man United beat Wolves to strengthen top-four hopes

Manchester United bounced back from consecutive Premier League defeats by beating Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford to strengthen their bid for a top-four finish.

Erik ten Hag’s side had lost to Brighton and West Ham to give Liverpool hope of snatching a Champions League spot at their expense.

With Marcus Rashford out through injury, it looked like being a difficult day in front of goal for the hosts as they missed a number of decent chances, particularly through Antony.

The winger curled an effort just wide after racing into space before sending a header over from close range when unmarked.

But Antony provided the assist for the first-half breakthrough when he was played in by Bruno Fernandes and he unselfishly squared to Martial for the tap-in.

However, substitute Garnacho finally got Manchester United’s second when the teenager raced through in the fourth minute of stoppage time before firing past Dan Bentley in the Wolves goal. Credit:
