An 82nd-minute strike from Joao Moutinho was all Wolverhampton Wanderers needed to beat Manchester United away at Old Trafford.
Ralf Rangnick’s side came into the encounter on the back of a brilliant 3-1 win at home to Burnley during the week while Wolves managed to draw Chelsea.
Wolves almost went ahead in the 12th minute as De Gea was called initially into action by Daniel Podence as he palmed his effort out before making a brilliant save to deny the attempted volley which made it’s way for the top corner from Ruben Neves from the resulting corner.
Life was fully injected into the game after the hour mark.
Unmarked substitute Bruno Fernandes hit the crossbar in the 67th minute having sidefooted a low cross from Matic.
A minute later the Reds who went ahead through Cristiano Ronaldo saw their lead chalked off after the Portuguese was clearly offside.
Wolves also had a great chance to take the lead in the final 15 minutes when Algerian captain Romain Saiss struck the bar with his effort. Nemanja Matic brought down Adama Traore on the edge of the area, Romain Saiss stepped up to take the resulting free-kick and it hit the crossbar.
Wolves finally got the lead in the 82nd minute courtesy of Joao Moutinho who took one touch and chose the bottom left corner to hit his strike having gotten the ball from a Phil Jones clearance.
United almost got an equalizer through Bruno Fernandes whose well taken free-kick was saved by Jose Sa.
The win was Wolves’ first away win at Old Trafford since 1980 with the Molineux based side having notched away league wins against 83 different clubs inbetween.
Also the game was the first time Cristiano Ronaldo would go on to lose while putting on the captain armband.
It was United’s first loss in the Ralf Rangnick era.
Up next for Man United is a trip to Villa Park against Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa.
