Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 Manchester United

2nd April 2019, 22:07 by Gareth Freeman

Manchester United's were reduced to 10 men and their top four hopes were dealt a blow as they slumped to a 2-1 defeat at Wolves.

United made a bright start at Molineux as Scott McTominay gave them a lead after just 13 minutes with a low strike from 22 yards as he scored his first goal for the club.

The lead lasted just 12 minutes however, as Diogo Jota perfectly timed his run and finished coolly after being played in by Raul Jimenez.

United captain Ashley Young was then sent off in the 57th minute after picking up two yellow cards in the space of five minutes, with both of his bookings coming for fouls on Jota.

It looked as if the visitors were going to hold on for a point until Chris Smalling's shambolic own goal with 13 minutes remaining.

Phil Jones and Raul Jimenez both challenged for Jonny's cross and the ball ended up rolling past United keeper David De Gea, and Smalling someone contrived to push the ball into the net with his hand as he dived to clear.

United are fifth in the standings and level on points with Spurs, who have played a game less, immediately above them.

Wolves remain seventh and the win over United will provide a welcome confidence boost going into their FA Cup semi-final with Watford at Wembley on Sunday.
