68: Good save from De Gea to deny Jota, who creatively shifted the ball to his right before drilling a low effort on target.

HT: The Red Devils weathered the early storm, took the lead thanks to Fred and haven’t looked back. Wolves still playing some nice stuff and won’t be too deflated by a one-goal deficit.

45: One minute of added time.

39: Luke Shaw collects the first booking of the afternoon for dragging down Costa on the right wing. United are dominating possession but little in the way of clear-cut chances.

35: Not seen much attacking from Wolves in the last 10 minutes. Fred sends a free-kick over to the back post where Fellaini heads the ball back into the danger area but it’s cleared.

32: There’s a standing ovation now for Sir Alex Ferguson – he’s clearly flattered but I suspect he fancies watching the game more!

25: Wolves should be thanking the referee as he blocks a crossfield pass from Lingard with his face. Not too pleasant for Kevin Friend.

14: Finally an effort from Manchester United as the ball falls kindly for Fred, who skews it high and wide.

11: What’s going on at Old Trafford?! Wolves are playing like Barca as Manchester United struggle to get the ball and string three passes together. Victor Lindelof does well to block Costa’s cross with Jimenez lurking inside the penalty area.

8: Save! David de Gea with a terrific stop from Jimenez, who swivels and fires one towards goal. Wolves looking very impressive indeed.

6: Antonio Valencia goes down looking for a penalty but Kevin Friend isn’t interested. Quite rightly so.

3: It’s been a decent start for the visitors, who win themselves a corner but Marouane Fellaini heads clear.

By

Manchester United coach, Jose Mourinho has issued out warning to Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp ahead of both teams’ clash in the Premier League fixture on Sunday evening at Anfield.

Mourinho has warned Klopp that real success can only be achieved when a club win trophies not matches.

The Portuguese gaffer has won both the Carabao Cup and Europa League trophy with United since taking over in 2016.

“I think trophies matter,” Mourinho was quoted by EPSN as saying ahead of Liverpool’s clash.

“It matters, especially when you have the potential to fight for trophies and especially when you clearly say the objective is to win the trophy.

“I think sometimes to just say it is not very intelligent but when you have the potential, you have nothing to hide, you know from day one your potential and your desire.

“To say we want to win, everyone can say that but another thing is to say the potential in a way you have but I think Jurgen said already they want to win the Premier League, that is their objective.”

Klopp has not won any trophy with Liverpool since taking over in 2015 from Bundesliga side, Borussia Dortmund.

The 51-year-old has lost the Caraboa Cup and the Europa League finals as well as the Champions League.

Klopp’s men are currently on top of the English topflight league table with 42 points from 16 games, while Mourinho’s side are sixth place with 26 points from the same number of games.

Why Liverpool is better than Manchester United- Mourinho

Published

By

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted the huge gap between his team and Liverpool, is due to many factors.

Mourinho takes United to Anfield on Sunday, with his side sitting some 16 points behind the Premier League leaders.

They’ve lost four matches in the league this season, while Liverpool have remained undefeated.

“It’s not just about the money they spend in the summer, is about many things.

“It’s not just about spending money and reinforcing the squad, a football team is more than that, is not just about spending the money.

“It’s like a house, it’s not just about buying the furniture, you have to do work, you spend money on the best possible furniture and then you’re ready to live in an amazing house,” Mourinho told UK Mirror.

Mourinho then delivered the killer line when he was asked how far away his team are from what he wants to be seeing, placed in the context of Jurgen Klopp continually getting the best out of his Liverpool players.

“Far,” he said, simply.

And then what asked why, he replied: “The reasons I was saying. It’s not just about spending.”

Following the Gunners’ 1-0 victory over Qarabag in the Europa League encounter played on Thursday night, Former Liverpool striker, Michael Owen has compared Nigerian-born and Arsenal forward, Bukayo Saka to Juventus ace, Cristiano Ronaldo, uniquesports.com.ng reports.

Saka made his first start for Unai Emery’s side against Qarabag on the left wing and showed plenty of confidence, as he tested goalkeeper, Vagner, with an early strike from the edge of the box and tried to take on defenders.

The 17-year-old also missed a good chance to score his first Arsenal goal in the second half against the visitors.

Owen has now suggested that Saka already has similarities with Ronaldo.

“He [Saka] looked really nervous at the start of the game, myself and Martin [Keown] were both talking about it,” Owen was quoted by Metro UK as saying.

“But he certainly grew into the game. Just him having the courage to run at players was really refreshing to see.

“Some of the skill… I watched Ronaldo doing this the other day for Juventus.”

“He’s just different class and by the end of the game, his confidence was oozing.”

Saka will hope to feature for Arsenal when they tackle Southampton this weekend in the Premier League.
