Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-4 Manchester United: Player Ratings as Kobbie Mainoo wins it at the death for the Red Devils

Manchester United defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers in a seven-goal thriller at Molineux in the Premier League on Thursday.

Erik ten Hag made a couple of changes to his starting XI, with Marcus Rashford and Andre Onana coming in.

The Red Devils played with purpose. Rashford put Man United ahead with a smart finish amid all the focus on his recent off-field antics.

Rasmus Hojlund doubled the lead from a Luke Shaw cross.

The visitors put the ball in the net two more times, but the goals were chalked off due to offside.

Wolves improved in the second half. Pablo Sarabia halved the deficit from the spot.

Scott McTominay made an instant impact off the bench by scoring United’s third. The hosts scored two late goals to bring parity to the scoreline and send Molineux wild.

However, Man United starlet Kobbie Mainoo scored a stunning goal in the 97th minute to hand his side all three points.

Player Ratings

Andre Onana – 4/10

The Cameroon international made another blunder at the back but escaped without conceding the goal. 

He charged for punching the ball but missed it completely. He must thank Lisandro Martinez for making a heroic clearance. 

Diogo Dalot – 7/10

Dalot was full of running, often taking positions in the midfield to help United attack with ease.

Raphael Varane – 6/10

The Frenchman looked like he was back to his best before Pedro Neto easily outsmarted him for the equaliser.

Lisandro Martinez – 8/10

The Argentine’s return has galvanised the backline. Excellent at the heart of the defence and made a tremendous goal-line clearance right after the break.

Luke Shaw – 7/10

The England international showcased the excellent understanding between him and Rashford down the left flank. 

Casemiro – 3/10

Casemiro earned a needless yellow card within the first 180 seconds. He also conceded a penalty, even though it was a harsh call from the referee.

Kobbie Mainoo – 8/10

The 18-year-old won it right at the death for the Red Devils when it looked like the visitors would have to settle with a point. He bossed the midfield and scored a majestic solo goal to end his night.

Bruno Fernandes – 7/10

The Portuguese pulled strings in the midfield and earned an assist for McTominay’s strike.

Alejandro Garnacho – 6/10

Garnacho made a mess of a fine counter-attacking opportunity minutes before Hojlund scored. Overall, it was a fruitful performance, but he can do much better than that.

Marcus Rashford – 7/10

Rashford dazzled down the left wing and took his goal with aplomb.

Rasmus Hojlund – 7/10

The former Atalanta man scored a scrappy goal, which any number nine would be proud of. His involvement faded off in the second half.


Antony – 3/10

Antony gave tough competition to Casemiro to get the lowest rating from us.

Scott McTominay – 7/10

He took just one minute after his arrival on the pitch to score a crucial goal against the run of the play.

Harry Maguire – N/A

Too late to rate.

Omari Forson – N/A

Too late to rate.

Jonny Evans – N/A

Too late to rate.
