Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Manchester United - Football Match Report

"We need 15 points in the last six games so we don't have room for any more losses", he said, assessing United's chances of a top-four finish before their next Premier League game at home to West Ham United on April 13.

United's Premier League trip to Molineux on Tuesday night ended in a 2-1 defeat, just as their FA Cup quarter-final had 17 days before.

Scott McTominay put United ahead with his first goal for the club but Diogo Jota equalised and Ashley Young then became the recipient of Mike Dean's 100th Premier League red card after being booked...

United are battling Totttenham, Chelsea and Arsenal for two places in next season's Champions League. It was a very good performance until they scored their second goal.

"We are a very good team, so it'll be hard for anyone playing against us. We did enough to win the game but you don't always get what you deserve".

United's midfield has looked exhausted of late so it's good to see that when the majority of them were rested, the players brought in performed admirably.

"We're in the reality stakes now". That's football. It's not like maths.


"Very disappointed with the result but pleased with the performance up until 75 mins".

United went down to 10 men in the 57th minute when right back Young was sent off for a second yellow card after a reckless hack on Jota.

"It was probably a bad decision [from Young] but in the heat of the moment he reached the ball but it was just a little bit too high".

At a coaching seminar in Portugal on Monday, Mourinho said: "We would play a team that was 30km from Manchester and a player asked me if after the game he could return to Manchester without the team and go on his own".

"Everyone can see they've got significant restructuring work to do to the squad as it stands to make it competitive, never mind taking away two of the more important players on top of that".

"I think this bubble, this whole "interim manager comes in and everybody gets a lift" is gone", he stated.
