Shambolic Manchester United defeated by Wolves for the first time in 42 years

Manchester United defeated by Wolves again

The Red Devils see a series of unwanted records set after losing to Wolves.

Manchester United were defeated 1-0 by Wolves for the first time since 1980 at Old Trafford, ending an unbeaten record of 42 years.

This is the first game they would lose, however since Ralf Ragnick took over five games ago.

Another shambolic performance has seen the Devils fall four points behind Arsenal in the race for top four and twenty-two points behind log leaders Manchester City.

The defeat to Wolves seems to be rather damning as it happened in front of their home fans. With that defeat, United have now won just one of their last three matches in the Premier League.

It doesn’t even look good for United, who have now failed to score in four different Premier League home games this season, which is already more than they did last season.

Wolves looked like a team that wanted to snatch their first-ever win at Old Trafford in their history right from the onset, registering a total of 15 shots in the first half. That is the most any visiting team has recorded in the first half at Old Trafford.

They (Wolves) ended the game with 19 shots compared to nine for United.

It was sure a poor performance from United and Ralf Ragnick could not agree less while speaking with reporters after the match.

What did Ragnick say?

“Moutinho could shoot unmarked with no problems, no pressure,” Ragnick told Skysports after the match.

“We’re very disappointed about the result and parts of our performance.

“They’re playing with four or five central midfielders and we had a problem controlling that part of the pitch. We decided to change our formation and we had more control – they didn’t have as many chances – but we missed our chances and we have to admit they deserved to win.

“Wolves were the best team we’ve played. We have more problems today than in other games.

“We didn’t press at all. We tried but we were not able to get into those pressing situations. They had an overload in midfield and they played via their wing-backs. We’ve been only working two and a half or three weeks after needing to close the training centre. We had the results. In times we played well but today we have to admit they’re better than us.”

What next for United?

United would now be hoping to turn tables around when they face Aston Villa away from home on Saturday.
