Nuno Espirito Santo put one over his mentor Jose Mourinho when promoted Wolverhampton held Manchester United to 1-1 at Old Trafford in the English Premier League on Saturday, September 22,2018.
Wolves manager Espirito Santo, who once played under the United coach at Porto, saw Mourinho’s team take the lead in the 18th minute when Paul Pogba set up Fred.
Fred’s goal came against the run of play as United struggled on Alex Ferguson’s homecoming. The former manager was back at Old Trafford for the first time since he underwent emergency brain surgery in May
Manchester United continued their dominance in the early stages of the second half but failed to cushion their lead.
Wolves got their chance and punished the Red Devils by Joao Moutinho who unleashed a curled effort into the left corner to level the scoreline in the 58th minute.
The host upped their game after conceding to restore parity but the resolute defence of Wolves proved too strong for the Red Devils.
