Wolves v Manchester United player ratings: Traore 7, Silva 8; Amad 8, Elanga 8

United go through the season unbeaten away from home

Manchester United completed the Premier League season undefeated away from home as Juan Mata’s penalty secured a 2-1 win at Wolves in the home side's final match under Nuno Espirito Santo.

United fielded a second-string lineup to rest key players for Wednesday's Europa League final against Villarreal, yet still took the lead in the 13th minute when 19-year-old forward Anthony Elanga headed in.

Nelson Semedo equalised in the 39th before Mata put Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team back in front with a penalty in first-half stoppage time.

In going through the campaign without an away loss, United matched a feat only previously achieved in the English top flight by Preston in 1888-89 and Arsenal in 2001-02 and 2003-04.

United had already been confirmed as finishing second, while Wolves ended the season in 13th place on the day fans returned to Molineux.
