Manchester United vs Wolves-FA cup Replay
Manchester United made it though to the fourth round of the FA Cup by one goal in a less than exciting replay at Old Trafford.
After an early shock for united when wolves broke quickly with Neto putting the ball in the net only for it to be ruled out for a handball from Raul Jimenez in the build-up. United managed to force a good save or three (maybe 2) but it was all level at the break.
After the break united Daniel James brought another good save from John Ruddy ( who was exceptional all night ) but it some substitution and a finely weighted ball from Anthony Martial to Juan Mata who supplied an exquisite chip to but in 1-0 up with 23 minutes remaining.

This was not the quality football we saw against Norwich, we struggled with Matic and Fred struggling to get hold of midfield ( we really do miss McSauce). Our main attack coming from Williams and Martial down the left-wing, It took a while to get the job done against a Wolves Side and With a suspected injury to Marcus Rashford when he was subbed on for Daniel James then subbed off for Jesse Lingard was the last thing Ole Needed.

Wolves can feel hard done by after a VAR Disallowed goal and rattling Sergio’s post can. This was not the free-flowing football we have come to know from wolves and Nuno. Moutinho and Neves struggled all night not hitting passes . and with the pace of Jonny, Neto and Adama handled well by Williams and Wan-Bissaka it just didn’t happen for them.
MAN OF THE MATCH: Brandon WilliamsEmbed from Getty Images
Brandon for a 19-year-old raw talent has exploded this season and last night was no different handling Neto then Adama ( when they switched cos Neto was having no joy). 90 minutes running a perfect example of a roaming left-back.
