the Game Summary:

In a pulsating Premier League encounter at Molineux on Thursday, Manchester United secured a thrilling 4-3 victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Marcus Rashford, who started for United despite being involved in an “internal disciplinary matter,” opened the scoring early in the game. The forward, who had missed the previous match, quickly made an impact by finding the net within the first five minutes. Wolverhampton Wanderers have the opportunity to surpass Manchester United in the Premier League standings if they secure a victory in Thursday’s match at Molineux. It was an exhilarating match that ultimately brought joy to the traveling Manchester United fans, with even the disheartened home team receiving applause as they left the pitch.

Left out in the previous Cup win, Rashford’s return saw him not only score but also contribute to Luke Shaw setting up Rasmus Hojlund for United’s second goal in the 22nd minute. Despite a dominant first-half display, with Hojlund and Casemiro having goals ruled out for offside, Wolves were awarded a penalty in the second half. Pedro Neto went down under a challenge from Casemiro, and after a VAR review, the penalty decision stood. Substitute Pablo Sarabia converted the spot-kick in the 71st minute.

Scott McTominay extended United’s lead in the 75th minute, but Wolves fought back, with Max Kilman reducing the deficit in the 85th minute. Neto leveled the score in stoppage time, setting the stage for a thrilling finale. However, it was Kobbie Mainoo who stole the spotlight, curling home a beautiful effort in the 97th minute to secure the win for United. The victory propelled United to seventh place in the table with 35 points, while Wolves sit in 11th place with 29 points. Mainoo, who netted his inaugural professional goal for the club in United’s recent FA Cup triumph over Newport County, continued to make a significant impact. This time, he marked his Premier League debut with a spectacular goal.
