On the task of stopping United, he continued: 'We know what we're coming up again.

The Old Trafford outfit are now sixth on the log with 10 points after six games and their next outing will be against Derby County in the EFL Cup.

"I think the result is fair", Mourinho was quoted by Express Sports. That was our mistake today.

"I expect my team to play better than we did".

The Portuguese said he was far from impressed with the display from his attackers, stating that "we deserve the punishment". "We played the way we wanted to play". His relationship with manager Jose Mourinho remains decidedly frosty.

"But I can not say that because I'm a player".

"I am optimistic, but a hard season, yes", he said.

Unfortunately for United, it isn't that simple.

They were in the game since the first minute, they played every ball, every second in the maximum of their intensity, their desire, and we didn't.

When asked what was stopping United from adopting an all-out attacking style in keeping with the club's history and tradition, Pogba pointed the finger of blame at Mourinho. There wasn't almost enough creativity to worry Wolves. He was taken off in the 62nd minute for Juan Mata.

He also moved the race rating in West Virginia in favor of Democrats and the Montana race from likely to lean Democratic. National attention in the race has grown as O'Rourke has raised more money than Cruz. "Did you?" the moderator asked.

It was Ferguson's first public appearance at Old Trafford since he suffered a brain haemorrhage in early May.

'Nice to see the great man back fit and healthy, ' tweeted the Yorkshire and England cricket legend. "I think we are going to be a better team".

Comparisons with their rivals are no kinder. Of course, against Wolves we had a better result and one point is better than zero. Worse still, they have fallen eight points behind Liverpool. "Whether we can win or not is a very tough order but we need to have our fans coming away proud of the team".

He was loosely involved in the goal which gave United an 18th minute lead, a first for new Brazilian signing Fred.

Mourinho said that after three straight wins - the most recent in the Champions League against Young Boys Bern on Wednesday - he was baffled by the performance. 'Maybe we should have showed more hunger.

He, however, refused to use fatigue as an excuse following their midweek Champions League game in Switzerland.

United's mentality baffled Mourinho, who was unable to offer an explanation for why Wolves appeared more fired up. That is the attitude I like my teams to have in every match. We can talk about Sanchez creating decent amount of chances - though not too many of high quality - and we could talk about his tenacity and aggressiveness.

'They are not superheroes, ' said midfielder Ruben Neves. Then you start in a poor way.
