Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho made thier full debuts, but Uniteds latest signing Christiano Ronaldo is yet to make a second debut for the red devils

The home side threw everything at United early on, with Raul Jimenez and Trincao going close, but the red devils somehow clung on until halftime, without any attempt on target

Wolves continued to the better side after the break, with Romain Saiss forcing two   remarkable saves from David Degea to keep the game level.

There was a VAR check to the build of Greenwoods goal, after Wolves players protested over a Paul Pogba challenge, but the goal stood. United sit third on the table with 7 points while Wolves are at position 18 with neither a point nor a goal.
