Manchester United suffered their second consecutive loss under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Saturday after he saw his side lose 2-1 away to Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Emirates Cup reports Completesports.com.
Second-half goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota saw Wolves go through to the semi-finals with Marcus Rashford’s stoppage-time goal not enough to save United at Molineux.
It means after a run of nine away wins in a row, Solskjaer has seen his side lose back-to-back games against Arsenal and Wolves.
Manchester United dominated possession in the early stages without creating any goalscoring chance to score in a dull opening 45 minutes.
Wolves’ best chance came three minutes before the break when Jota was played through by Ruben Neves but Sergio Romero made a fine save to deny him.
Jimenez also forced a spectacular one-handed save from Romero just after the break, the goalkeeper reacting quickly to tip the ball onto the crossbar.
Joao Moutinho took three United players out with a piece of quality down the left and found Jimenez, who fired a low effort into the net after being afforded too much room.
Six minutes later, the game was over when Jota outmuscled Luke Shaw on the counter attack and struck a low effort past Romero at his near post.
Rashford did strike in injury time but it did not matter though as Wolves are just two wins from winning their first silverware since 1980 with Watford, Manchester City and one of Millwall and Brighton awaiting them in the semi-finals.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
