Wolves vs Manchester United LIVE!

Kobbie Mainoo's dramatic late winner fired Manchester United to a stunning 4-3 win at Wolves as Marcus Rashford shook off any Belfast blues.

The 18-year-old midfielder's first Premier League goal shocked Molineux in stoppage time after Pedro Neto's leveller looked to have snatched a point for the hosts just two minutes earlier.

Pablo Sarabia's penalty and Max Kilman's close-range strike had given Wolves - who initially came back from 2-0 and 3-1 down - hope either side of Scott McTominay's second-half header.

Rashford had earlier scored and helped assist Rasmus Hojlund after being disciplined by boss Erik ten Hag. He called in sick on Friday and was omitted from the squad for Sunday's FA Cup win at Newport having reportedly gone drinking in Belfast last week.

But it was an excellent comeback from Rashford, with United - who climb to seventh in the Premier League - inflicting Wolves' first home defeat since September to end their seven-game unbeaten run.

Kobbie Mainoo scores in 97th minute as United win seven-goal thriller

22:50 , Marc Mayo

Teenager Kobbie Mainoo netted a stoppage-time winner as Manchester United beat Wolves 4-3 in a remarkable match at Molineux.

The Red Devils moved up to seventh in the Premier League table, putting in their best first-half display of the season in which they scored two goals which counted and two more rightly disallowed for offside.

But they heaped unnecessary pressure on themselves in the second half, conceding two needless goals, before academy graduate Mainoo won the game for Erik ten Hag’s side.

21:44 , Dom Smith

It's been given. Now what will VAR say?

Back underway at Molineux

21:21 , Dom Smith

And they have an awful lot of work to do.

Half-time: Wolves 0-2 Manchester United

21:07 , Dom Smith

Half-time whistle blows and United have a 2-0 lead at Molineux.

Erin ten Hag said this week that it's "case closed" on Rashford's misdemeanours in the week. Well, it could and frankly should be case closed here at Molineux, where United have scored two offside goals on top of the two that have counted, and missed numerous golden opportunities too.

Wolves have attacked well but defended terribly.

Wolves 0-2 Manchester United

21:03 , Dom Smith

45+2' Booking for Craig Dawson for getting a little bit too handsy for the referee's liking.

United then score with the resulting free-kick, but Casemiro's header is ruled out for offside

Wolves 0-2 Manchester United

21:01 , Dom Smith

Three minutes added on here.

GOOAA... No.

21:01 , Dom Smith

Hojlund has played well here though.

Wolves 0-2 Manchester United

20:57 , Dom Smith

42' Finally some rhythm and calm in a match that has been otherwise frantic.

Wolves passing it about nicely, but there's good shape about United defensively.

Wolves 0-2 Manchester United

20:50 , Dom Smith

34' Varane volleys just over with what would have been a remarkable and superb goal if he'd found the target.

What are Wolves playing at?

Wolves 0-2 Manchester United

20:48 , Dom Smith

33' United finding it too easy to create opportunities here.

A short backpass from Doherty allows Hojlund to steal in and block almost into the net from Sa's clearance.

Seconds later, Fernandes rolls the ball wide of the target when he was looking to place it.

Wolves living dangerously. United could be out of sight!

Wolves 0-2 Manchester United

20:44 , Dom Smith

28' Tommy Doyle tests the gloves of Andre Onana with a free-kick, which the Cameroon keeper grabs at the second attempt.

Wolves continuing to create chances, but it's United who lead by two and have been the better side here.

Wolves 0-2 Manchester United

20:42 , Dom Smith

26' Manchester United SO close to a third, but Casemiro's header from a clever Fernandes free-kick lands just wide of Jose Sa's post.

GOAL! Wolves 0-2 Manchester United

20:39 , Dom Smith

23' United double their lead and have made a perfect start here.

Rashford plays to the overlapping Luke Shaw, whose cross goes in off Hojlund. Great confidence boost for the Dane, who now has three goals in his last three Premier League game.

Wolves 0-1 Manchester United

20:37 , Dom Smith

22' Wolves with a sustained period of pressure which ends with the ever-threatening Cunha shooting straight into the grasp of Onana.

The hosts have had a fair amount of the ball, but Rashford's excellent goal still separates the teams.

Wolves 0-1 Manchester United

20:32 , Dom Smith

17' Bruno Fernandes playing quite deep tonight, happy to mop up play and dictate the tempo for Manchester United.

He is trying to find control — something Casemiro failed to find with a hashed shot just now, which flew way over the bar!

Wolves 0-1 Manchester United

20:29 , Dom Smith

13' Wolves spread play and Cunha beats Dalot down the left.

His shot then deflects off the Portuguese and is gathered with ease by Andre Onana.

GOAL! Wolves 0-1 Manchester United

20:21 , Dom Smith

4' Well, well, well, wouldn't you just know it.

An absolutely stunning goal by Marcus Rashford to silence the critics on his return to the team.

Curls the ball round three bodies and into the top corner. What a goal.

Wolves 0-0 Manchester United

20:19 , Dom Smith

3' Casemiro into the book worryingly early from a United perspective, for a really late challenge.

Kick off

20:16 , Dom Smith

We're underway at Molineux!

Erik ten Hag: This is our strongest team

20:02 , Dom Smith

Asked whether his starting line-up tonight is United's strongest possible, Ten Hag says: "I think so, it could be. We know some have to catch up from game rhythm, like Licha Martinez, Casemiro, Luke Shaw. But this is a strong side and we have to find the rhythm and find or levels to bring the performances and get the results in."

Kick off fast approaching

19:57 , Dom Smith

Just over 15 minutes to go now until the game is underway at Molineux.

Wolves hoping to keep their strong run of form going, United aiming for a fourth win in a row against them.

Wolves flying under the radar

19:46 , Dom Smith

For Wolves, however, taking strong form with them into the new year has been no such problem.

O'Neil's side have won five of their last seven matches, scoring plenty of goals in the process.

Currently 11th, they could rise to as high as eighth by the end of the night.

United's form worrying

19:35 , Dom Smith

Having won just two of their last nine matches heading to Molineux tonight, United find themselves struggling for consistency as has been the case throughout Ten Hag's tenure.

Currently ninth in the league, they sit 11 points behind fifth-place Aston Villa.

They've named a strong line-up tonight, though. But if Wolves beat them, then Gary O'Neil's side will move ahead of them in the table on goal difference.

Rashford will have a point to prove tonight

19:27 , Dom Smith

Rashford was not involved during United's FA Cup win at Newport on Sunday after reports saying he had been on nights out in Belfast on both Wednesday and Thursday, before then reporting ill to the club.

His manager, Erik ten Hag, says the matter has been dealt with, it is "case closed", and insisted the England forward had "taken responsibility."

Starting line-ups

19:18 , Dom Smith

Here are the starting XIs for both sides.

Wolves are unchanged from Sunday's FA Cup win at West Brom. United, meanwhile, hand Marcus Rashford his first start since rumours of his misdemeanours in Belfast.

Wolves: Sa; Semedo, Dawson, Kilman, Toti, Doherty; Lemina, Doyle, Neto; Cunha, Bellegarde

Manchester United: Onana; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw; Casemiro, Mainoo; Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford; Hojlund

Wolves vs Man Utd team news

19:07 , Dom Smith

Joao Gomes is ruled out for Wolves through suspension, while Hwang Hee-chan and Boubacar Traore are both away on international duty. Pablo Sarabia may face a late fitness test, but Rayan Ait-Nouri is back.

For United, Marcus Rashford should return to the squad in the aftermath of missing the game at Newport having reported ill for training on Friday following an alleged night out in Belfast. Mason Mount, Anthony Martial, Victor Lindelof and Tyrell Malacia are all still injured and Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a doubt.

Andre Onana, meanwhile, is expected back in goal after Cameroon’s exit from the Africa Cup of Nations, though Sofyan Amrabat surely won't be back from AFCON in time following Morocco's shock elimination by South Africa on Tuesday.

Starting line-ups on the way shortly

Wolves vs Man Utd prediction

19:01 , Dom Smith

Wolves really should have won the reverse fixture and have pulled off some big results at home this season.

For those reasons, a victory would not be a surprise here.

Manchester United have come out on top over the course of the previous 112 meetings between these sides. Here's the breakdown of previous matches between United and Wolves:

Manchester United wins: 55

Draws: 20

Wolves wins: 37

Wolves hoping for revenge against United

18:37 , Dom Smith

The Red Devils beat Gary O’Neil’s side in the first game of the season at Old Trafford, but only thanks to a number of missed chances and a controversial call not to award the visitors what appeared a clear penalty.

Having pulled off some big results at home since, Wolves will feel confident against a United team who remain hugely inconsistent and are without a win in the Premier League since Boxing Day.
