Manchester United fans delighted with Fred's performance vs Wolves

They will have been disappointed not to win the game on a day when Sir Alex Ferguson returned to Old Trafford for the first time since recovering from a brain haemorrhage.

A draw at home to Wolves was not the result Manchester United wanted.

"I want him, in this process of adaptation, to play totally fresh, so he's not playing tomorrow".

That will be next midweek in the EFL Cup at Old Trafford.

"These two Portuguese boys [Ruben Neves and Moutinho], they are both the kind of player that likes to bite, that likes to [give] short distance, to press, we know that they don't give a long time for you to have the ball, to turn, to one-touch, two touches".

However, with his side having won their past three matches in all competitions, Mourinho believes his team are showing they are better than they were last season when they finished runners-up to Manchester City in the Premier League.

Florence "ravaged" the Carolinas, leaving thousands of people without power and forced to evacuate areas in both states. To make matters worse, US 17 could close this weekend as floodwaters continue to rise north of the city.

Only his redoubtable goalkeeper De Gea, without whom United would surely have been staring at a first defeat in the fixture since 1980, will feel able to rise entirely above the criticism. It was just a disappointment to see the Brazilian substituted in the second half.

Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard all started for United yet it was summer signing and central midfielder Fred who scored their only goal.

Manchester United suffered consecutive losses to Brighton and Tottenham Hotspur to lose ground in the title race after three games.

He came off after 62 minutes, replaced by Martial on the left as United sought renewed impetus after struggling following Wolves' equaliser. Is Jose Mourinho right on this occasion?

"Not a good performance, not a good result".

'So I think is a mental situation and attitude, again one team was coming to play the game of their lives and another was to relax'. "They started better were more aggressive, had more intent and I don't know why but they were more motivated", the United manager said. We didn't have that, they did.
