Wolverhampton Wanderers handed Manchester United interim coach Ralf Rangnick his first defeat for the club in the English Premier League this morning.
Joao Moutinho struck late to give the Wolves a 1-nil victory over Man United.
Moutinho drove home on the half-volley after Adama Traore’s cross had only been half-cleared by Phil Jones, who was making his first appearance for the hosts in 707 days.

It was a deserved win for Wolves, who dominated the first half and also hit the bar late on through Romain Saiss’ free-kick.
But it was a disappointing display by United, who did not get going until Bruno Fernandes came on midway through the second half.
The Portuguese midfielder hit the crossbar before Cristiano Ronaldo fired just wide soon after.
United remain seventh while Wolves are now three points and once place behind them in eighth.
