In a thrilling encounter, Manchester United's academy product, Kobbie Mainoo, secured a dramatic victory with a superb goal during stoppage time against Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The match started with Man Utd taking a commanding 2-0 lead within the first 22 minutes, courtesy of goals from Marcus Rashford and Rasmus Hojlund. Despite missed opportunities to extend their lead, Pablo Sarabia's penalty for Wolves narrowed the gap. Scott McTominay's swift goal seemed to secure Man Utd's lead, but Wolves staged a remarkable comeback with goals from Max Kilman and Pedro Neto.
However, Mainoo's decisive strike in the dying moments sealed a 4-3 win for Man Utd, propelling them to seventh place in the league standings.
The match witnessed Rashford's early goal, Hojlund's impactful contribution, and Wolves' spirited fightback. Mainoo's winning goal, assisted by Omari Forson, highlighted the youthful talent within Man Utd's ranks.
Key statistics from the match include Man Utd's history of late winning goals by young players, Hojlund's impressive performances, and Gary O'Neil's challenging record against Man Utd as a manager.
Wolves' first home defeat in the Premier League since September marked a significant setback for them, ending their streak of eight unbeaten games at Molineux.
