Manchester United ‘s hopes of a Premier
League top-four finish took a serious hit as
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s 10-man Red Devils
fell to a 2-1 defeat against Wolves.

United were knocked out of the FA Cup at
Molineux last month, but started brightly on
Tuesday night as Romelu Lukaku went close
with an early header.

Scott McTominay clinically dispatched his first senior goal for United from range after 13 minutes, but Jesse Lingard soon missed a gilt- edged chance – and the visitors were made to pay.

Wolves capitalised on a mistake from Fred as Raul Jimenez slipped Diogo Jota through -with Ashley Young playing him onside – and
the forward beat David de Gea well.

United’s confidence deserted them, and with
Young sent off after the break for a lunge on
Jota, Wolves added a second as Chris Smalling bundled the ball into his own net after more poor defending.

The result leaves United in fifth place in the
table, handing top four rivals Tottenham,
Arsenal and Chelsea a massive boost for the run-in.
