It was the final premier league fixture of matchday 2 action. The previous fixture saw us witness some great and disappointing results for the teams involved. Man United who are coming from their 4 nil win over Chelsea at Old Trafford, locked horn against Wolves who showed last season how good they are especially against the top teams, for a chance to continue their winning momentum. It was a game that saw Wolves continue from where they stopped last season as they both settle with a draw at the Molineux Stadium.
Man United have done a great job to bolster their squad this season, adding quality players like Bissaka and Maguire who showed in their opening game against Chelsea what they can offer to this Man United team. This fixture against a strong Wolves side proved to be yet another difficult test for them as they failed yet again to earn 3 points against Wolves.
Wolves began their premier league campaign with a 0-0 draw against Leicester last weekend and for them, it was yet another difficult fixture against a strong team like Man United even though they played at home. They would have wished for their first win this season, but however, it was a well-earned positive result at home against Man United as they continue where they left off last season as the top teams’ nemesis.
Brief Post-Match Analyses
It was yet another amazing premier league matchday 2 atmosphere at the Molineux Stadium, the last premier league action for matchday 2, as lots of fans were all excited for the game.
Wolves setup in their usual 3-4-3 formation, while Man United setup in their preferred 4-2-3-1 formation. The game began and both teams were up for it from the first minute. Man United eventually took the lead before the half-hour mark but weren’t able to keep away the hungry wolves from getting back into the game as both teams had to settle with a draw at the Molineux Stadium.
Anthony Martial gave Man United the lead in the 27th minute after a very nice attacking play down the left-hand side to fire home into the roof of the net with his weaker left foot.
Ruben Neves put Wolves back into the game in the 55th minute with a wonder goal, placing the ball into the top right corner with an unstoppable effort to ensure that Wolves continue from where they stopped last season as the big teams’ nemesis.
It was a great game by both teams as they round up matchday 2 actions with equal share of the pie. This post can also be found on my scorum blog
