    NUNO'S GOODBYE

    Nuno Espirito Santo paid tribute to the Wolves fans after his last game in charge.

    He told Sky Sports: “It was very special and very emotional. I will miss it.

    “I thanked my coaches for all their commitment. 

    “Having fans here means football is back.

    “What do I want to? Now, I want to rest. Everyone will have a break and be with their families. Then, let’s see what the future holds.

    “We had bad injuries to important players. But we found solutions. It was a tough season. When I reflect on it, I’m very proud.”

    MATA TIGHT-LIPPED

    Juan Mata refused to be drawn into speculation on his future with his contract expiring at the end of the season.

    He told Sky Sports: “In three days we have an important game which is where my mind is. I still feel I can play good football.

    “I know what I want. I’m still hungry to play football.

    “I thought it was a good performance. We made a lot of changes with some young players who showed they could play at this level.

    “We have a very important game on Wednesday. This is good preparation, both physically and mentally.

    “He [Anthony Elanga] is a very good player. He has a good attitude and he works hard in training. I’m very happy for him.

    “I felt it was a penalty. The defender clearly kicked Donny [van de Beek].”

    Juan Mata scored from the spot as United go unbeaten away from home for the entire Premier League campaign.

    82. Two changes for the visitors and it’s a United debut for Hannibal Mejbri as he replaces Juan Mata. Shola Shoretire is on for Amad. Is that the last time we’ve seen Mata in a United shirt? Marcel is on for Ait Nouri for Wolves.

    81. Amad lets fly but Coady gets a leg on it and it deflects into the arms of Patricio. The United man perhaps had better options there.

    70. Wolves have had a lot of joy down the right today. Gibbs-White digs out a cross but it’s just too high for Willian Jose.

    58. What a miss by Dan James. Amad slips him in with a lovely weighted ball. With just Patricio to beat, James goes for a little dink and gets it horribly wrong. It trickles out for a goal-kick.

    HT: WOLVES 1-2 MANCHESTER UNITED

    An eventful 45 minutes in Nuno Espirito Santo’s last game in charge of Wolves. Anthony Elanga headed the visitors in front in the 13th minute with his first goal for United on only his second start.

    Nelson Semedo then levelled in the 39th minute with his first goal for Wolves.

    But Mike Dean then got involved, awarding United a hugely debatable penalty in stoppage time after Donny van de Beek tumbled as Romain Saiss swung out a leg. 

    Juan Mata scored from the spot in what could be his final league appearance for the Red Devils.

  • The Sun

    WOLVES 1-2 MANCHESTER UNITED

    45+4. Juan Mata scores from the spot to put United back in front. The Wolves fans are letting their feelings known about that penalty decision. There was a touch but was it a penalty? Not for me, Clive.
