Real Madrid keen to sign Man United star this summer – report

The match took a major turn in a matter of minutes in the second half when Young was shown two yellow cards moments apart by referee Mike Dean and was sent off leaving United to finish the match with 10 men.

It's the first time Wolves have won consecutive games against Manchester United in all competitions since 1980 and leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team in fifth place and out of the Champions League places.

Scott McTominay's first goal for the club put United in front at Molineux, where a victory would have seen Solskjaer's side jump above Arsenal and Tottenham into third in the Premier League.

It was painful viewing for Solskjaer, who was appointed the club's permanent manager on Thursday, as United squandered chances to improve on their 1-0 early lead before Wolves hit back through Diogo Jota and a late Chris Smalling own goal.

Solskjaer said: 'It was one of those days where we've done more than enough to score three or four goals. "I was very pleased with the amount of chances, with the intent in the way we started the game and played", he said.

Wolves grew into the game and were on level terms by the 25th minute when a bad giveaway from Fred allowed the hosts to score, Diogo Jota beating David De Gea from an incisive Raul Jimenez through ball.

We played with incredible spirit, we could have scored more. Fulham is 13 points from safety with 18 points to play for. Always you have doubts about how they're going to react.

Solskjaer had set his team a target of 15 points from the last seven games meaning United now need to win five of their remaining six fixtures.

"I don't think there is any kickback or re-setting".

It was a second win in three weeks over United at Molineux for Nuno Espirito Santo's men and he hailed the reaction of the FA Cup semi-finalists to falling behind. Our performance deserved the win.

"After the red card our task is not so hard, of course it is always risky against a hard team, but it makes me proud against such a good team". It was a very good performance until they scored their second goal.

"The reaction and the way they reacted to conceding a goal - we know we can concede again and it's game over but we stayed in the game and stayed calm and organised".

"We didn't pounce on big moments in the game". "Staying compact and organised is important, but the way the team went forward was unbelievable".
