Marcus Rashford 7, Bruno Fernandes 7; Roman Saiss 8, Pedro Neto 5: Manchester United v Wolves player ratings

United just two points behind leaders Liverpool after another victory

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remained coy about Manchester United's title hopes after Marcus Rashford's last-gasp effort against Wolves propelled them up to second in the Premier League.

A topsy-turvy year that started with supporters calling for the heads of executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and the Glazer family ended with the Red Devils winning at an empty Old Trafford to move just two points behind leaders Liverpool.

United's mentality has been key to their improvements during 2020, with Solskjaer's men digging deep to seal a 1-0 win against Wolves through Rashford's deflected late strike.

Asked at what point he and the players acknowledge they are in a title race, the United boss said: "There's no title race after 15 games.

"You can lose the chance of being in a race in the first 10 games, of course you can.

"But play another 15, get to 30 and then maybe we can start talking about a title race, when you get to March or April, when we have at least played more than half a season.

"But the belief is there. Of course the players go into every game thinking we can win against anyone anywhere.

"Away we've shown what we're capable of. I think we're improving at home as well and this result is massive for confidence and for the attitude."
