Wolves player ratings vs Man United: Here’s how the Wolves fared
Manchester United failed to give their legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson a warm welcome to Old Trafford as Joao Moutinho’s equaliser earned Wolverhampton Wanderers a point.
Fred’s first Premier League goal ensured United went into the break with a 1-0 lead despite Wolves enjoying a better first half.
But shortly after the break, Moutinho opened his Wolves account with a left-footed curler into the top corner to seal a deserved equaliser and a point for the visitors.
Wolves Player Ratings
Rui Patricio – 8/10
Patricio couldn’t do anything about Fred’s opener but he did pull off a spectacular save from the Brazilian’s free-kick to prevent Wolves heading into the break 2-0 down.
After the break, he made crucial saves off Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku to earn Wolves a priceless point at Old Trafford.
Ryan Bennett – 7/10
A fantastic performance from Bennett who stuck to his guns and defended very well against United’s attackers.
Conor Coady – 7/10
Coady perfectly dominated Lukaku throughout the game. He stayed focus, looked composed in possession and made challenges to break up the opposition’s play.
Willy Boly – 8/10
Boly was very dominant in the air and didn’t allow Lukaku a yard of space to breathe. Was composed in possession and denied Lukaku at the death, what would have been the winner.
Matt Doherty – 8/10
Doherty had an excellent game at right wing-back, bombed up and down the flank and created chances for his teammates. It was his run and cross to Jimenez which led to Moutinho’s equaliser.
Jonny Castro – 7/10
A bundle of energy at left wing-back, Jonny put in another top performance for Wolves.
Joao Moutinho – 9/10
A near-complete performance from the Portuguese star. Moutinho’s passing was top-notch and scored the goal with aplomb to steal a historic point for the visitors against United.
Ruben Neves – 8/10
Neves added steel to Wolves’ midfield. His passing was fantastic, which kept Wolves in the game.
Helder Costa – 8/10
Tormented United’s defence with his pace and dribbling skills. It was his pass from the right that led to Moutinho’s goal.
Raul Jimenez – 8/10
Jimenez led Wolves’ attack with aplomb. He had a chance early on but couldn’t beat De Gea. Linked up play very well with his fellow attackers and was a thorn for Smalling and Lindelof.
Diogo Jota – 8/10
Jota oozed class at Old Trafford with his lung-busting runs and directness. This was arguably his best Premier League performance till date.
Adama Traore – 6/10
Replaced Costa and always tried to make things happen. Gave Shaw a tough time and had a shot saved at near post by De Gea.
Romain Saiss – 5/10
Came on for Moutinho and shored up Wolves’ midfield.
Morgan Gibbs-White – 5/10
Gibbs-White did what was asked out of him in the last few minutes of the game.
