Manchester United entertained Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford earlier today as they looked to grind out a good result at home in the Premier League. The Red Devils made a bright start to the game and got their noses ahead in the 32nd minute when Anthony Martial scored with a simple finish. Erik ten Hag’s men went into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.
