Nuno proud of Wolves character in Man United draw

Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw at home to promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford on Saturday, leaving them eight points adrift of Premier League leaders Liverpool.

Sanchez is still a world-class footballer but does not look it at United and, his debut at Yeovil Town, the win at Wembley against Tottenham and the second half of the league game at Manchester City aside, moments of outstanding football beauty have been few.

"I think the result is fair", Mourinho said. "They played like it was the World Cup final".

"I think with Fellaini alongside him who looks like a pillar in that team". We didn't have that. "They did. That attitude made a difference", added the former Chelsea manager. You don't need to have experiences at the highest level to learn that.

"That's a basic law of football, you have to play with the maximum of your potential, with the maximum of your focus". Against Tottenham we lost the game but I liked very very much my team's performance. Boasting a strong squad of Portuguese compatriots, Nuno Santos has led his side to an early mid-table position and they sit just one point behind United.

"I think it is (a mental thing)", he said.

It's harder prove someone guilty beyond a reasonable doubt without DNA evidence or surveillance footage. "So I thought that the president's tweet was completely inappropriate and wrong".

"For me, it is hard to explain that".

United entered the match looking for their third straight league win and looked as though their defensive display may pull them through.

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. I could say we were exhausted, Champions League, bad pitch, the body suffers the different impact on an artificial rather than actual grass, not coming home after the match. I could go in this direction but Alexis Sánchez and Jesse Lingard didn't play.

After a promising performance in midweek against Young Boys it was great to see Fred score his first Manchester United goal.

As the game entered extra time, De Gea was once again called upon as Adama Traore displayed his pace to get in behind the United defence before lashing a shot away which De Gea saving it easily.

Joao Moutinho then equalised shortly after half-time with a pinpoint shot from the top of the box that found the top left corner of the goal to eventually seal the draw.
