Mason Greenwood scores winner as Man United win at Wolves as the Red Devils prepare for official announcement of Cristiano Ronaldo's homecoming
Cristiano Ronaldo's influence was felt as Manchester United defeated Wolves in their first match since announcing the forward's re-signing.
Ronaldo was not present at Molineux, but United's travelling supporters cheered his name, with the Red Devils likely to finalise his move from Juventus for £12.8 million in the coming days.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were perpetually second best to a spirited Wolves until Mason Greenwood scored a disputed late winner.
Wolves claimed Ruben Neves was fouled during the build-up, but the goal was upheld.
Within 15 minutes, Wolves could have been 3-0 up, but David de Gea saved Raul Jiminez's effort early in the game, Aaron Wan-Bissaka made a goal-saving block to prevent Trincao, and Joao Moutinho volleyed over following a Jadon Sancho error.
United were second best for most of the game, and it took a magnificent double save from De Gea from Romain Saiss to stop Wolves from grabbing the lead before to Greenwood's finish.
