Manchester United wins over Wolves in premier league opening match

 Manchester United survived several Wolves missed opportunities and an alarmingly porous midfield display to eke out a win in their first Premier League game of the season.

Raphael Varane headed home Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s cross in the 76th minute, much to the relief of a techy Old Trafford crowd who were protesting against the Glazer family’s continued ownership of the club.

Matheus Nunes and Matheus Cunha were outstanding for the visitors, who were left to rue their profligacy in front of goal and some solid saves by United goalkeeper Andre Onana on his debut. 

Erik ten Hag’s side lost to Brighton and Brentford in their first two league matches of last season, and while this result represents an improvement on that return the performance raises plenty of questions.

Wolves manager Gary O’Neil was furious that his side were not awarded a stoppage time penalty for a mis-timed aerial challenge by Onana.


 However, it could have been a different story if referee Simon Hooper had awarded the visitors a penalty when keeper Andre Onana crashed into striker Sasa Kalajdzic and failed to make contact with the ball in stoppage time. The PGMOL later apologised for this mistake but Ten Hag felt the right decision had been made.

Wolves boss Gary O'Neil said Jon Moss, referees' manager at the Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL), felt this was a "blatant" penalty and apologised for the decision. Moreover, PGMOL chief Howard Webb reportedly contacted Wolves officials after the United defeat to apologise for the error - not long after speaking about the goal of reducing high-profile mistakes and driving up standards.
