In a thrilling Premier League encounter at Molineux, Manchester United clinched a dramatic 4-3 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers with a stunning 97th-minute winner from Kobbie Mainoo.
Mainoo showcased his brilliance by elegantly curling his maiden Premier League goal past Wolves’ goalkeeper Jose Sa, seizing the opportunity after collecting the ball on the left flank. His strike came mere moments after Pedro Neto’s apparent equalizer had threatened to salvage a point for Wolves.
Wolves showcased remarkable resilience, bouncing back from a 2-0 halftime deficit and a 3-1 scoreline against them in the 85th minute. However, it was United’s young prodigy, 18-year-old Mainoo, who ultimately secured all three points for the visitors with his heroics.
The scoring spree commenced with Marcus Rashford breaking the deadlock just five minutes into his return to the United lineup, following his absence from the FA Cup fourth round due to illness amid reports of an off-field incident in Belfast. Rasmus Hojlund doubled United’s lead, setting the stage for an enthralling encounter.
Although Pablo Sarabia narrowed the deficit from the penalty spot, United seemed to have sealed victory when Scott McTominay, introduced as a second-half substitute, headed in a corner with 15 minutes remaining.
The pulsating encounter at Molineux showcased the unpredictable nature of Premier League football, highlighting the exhilarating moments that keep fans on the edge of their seats.
