Manchester United has moved into the Premier League top four by an only goal scored by Marcus Rashford against the Wolves.

Manager Erik ten Hag left Rashford out of his starting line-up for internal disciplinary reasons.

But after a disappointing opening period, in which Rashford’s replacement Alejandro Garnacho wasted the visitors’ best chance when his shot was saved by Jose Sa, the England man scored 14 minutes from time.

Rashford picked the ball up outside the Wolves area, then, after exchanging passes with Bruno Fernandes, held off three defenders before driving home his 11th goal of the season in all competitions.

BBC says it is the first time he had scored in three successive games for United since December 2019.

The match ended with Wolves 0-1 Manchester United.
