MUN vs CRY : Manchester United’s 1-1 draw on Monday night against Wolverhampton Wanderers was marred by the post-match racial abuse slurred by the fans towards Paul Pogba for missing a 2nd half penalty.
Coming away with a point from the home of a team which outperformed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team last season shows that the Red Devils are heading in the right direction. The visitors were clearly the better of the two in the first half, looking dangerous in the opponent’s half, with a good defensive thwarting Wolves’ front foot approach in the 2nd half.
