Wolves strike to deny United at Old Trafford

Jose Mourinho expects this to be a "very hard season", despite Manchester United becoming a better, more attractive side.

Wolves created three openings in the opening 17 minutes before Fred gave United a barely deserved lead.

Sanchez, who joined Manchester United in January 2018 from Arsenal, has now gone 831 minutes without a Premier League goal, the last one coming in March last season against now Championship side Swansea.

"I think the happiness, the confidence, the self-esteem was what pushed him to play the first match nearly without training against Leicester and played a very good match".

The World Cup victor can flit in and out of games and today was no different - but his contribution for Fred's goal was special.

Rightly or wrongly, the best-paid players at football clubs tend to start whether they are playing well or not, but as in his two previous games, Sanchez was substituted. And I think we are improving as a team.

"Come on, this is something you learn when you are a kid in the academy, you don't need experiences at the highest level to learn that".

Following their clash against Wolves, United face lower league opposition when they host Derby County in the third round of the Carabao Cup on September 25. It is a basic law of football, you have to play at the maximum of your potential, unless you are playing in such a weak league against such weak opponents where playing at 30 percent of your potential is enough.

'I don't speak with him for quite a long time, to be honest, ' said Mourinho.

Everybody knows he has a favourite surface but he has also to win on surfaces he is not in love with - so we have to do it.' Commenting more specifically on the match, Mourinho confirmed Antonio Valencia won't play while Luke Shaw may be part of the competition. We won three matches away, we come home with a good spirit, we come home in peace because we recover and then you start in a poor way. I could say we were exhausted, Champions League, terrible pitch, the body suffers the different impact on an artificial rather than actual grass, not coming home after the match. So yes, it's a mental situation.

Some United fans were furious with yet another insipid match from a player they out-bid rivals Manchester City for.
