Wolves 1-1 Man Utd: Pogba misses penalty as United miss chance to go top

Odiase Osayande



Paul Pogba missed a penalty as Manchester United were held by Wolves at Molineux.

Anthony Martial’s quick dart in behind was read by Marcus Rashford’s through ball and the Frenchman’s powerful finish into the roof of the net at the near post broke the deadlock.

Ruben Neves levelled for the hosts after the restart, curling delightfully into the top right corner, with VAR eventually awarding the goal after a close call for offside in the build-up.

Pogba then drove into the box and won a penalty after tempting Conor Coady into tripping him, but the Frenchman was denied by Rui Patricio’s excellent save.

In the end both sides had to settle for a draw in a game high on quality.
