Wolverhampton x Man United review

Manchester United came through a difficult encounter away in Wolves taking the all important three points courtesy of a Paul Scholes goal in the 73rd minute.

Despite the tight result, Manchester United controlled the game for large periods. Although the opening break was from Wolves, which resulted in Doyle placing the ball wide of the goal, Manchester United had plenty opportunities.

Young starlet Darron Gibson had various chances to score from open play in the first half hour, along with Antonio Valencia whose shot from distance on the right wing went just wide of the post.

The attacking instincts of Scholes won the game for United though, quickly anticipating the ball before tucking his shot into the left hand side of the net. Vokes had the last chance for Wolves, beating the off-side trap against an otherwise solid United defence, however squandered his chance over the bar.

Along with the satisfaction a win inevitably brings, there were some excellent individual performances too. Patrice Evra continued his run of ever lasting form, with his impressive runs down the left wing, while keeping tight to his marker defensively. Another was from Berbatov.

Much praise in recent weeks has gone to Wayne Rooney, deservedly for his tally of goals. The contribution of the Bulgarian often goes without much acknowledgement though, but his touches and build up play on the ball were simply of another class, along with his excellent work ethic throughout means he deserves a mention.

One disappointment however came from the ever inconsistent Nani. The left wing doesn’t seem like the best position for him, which leaves Ferguson with the dilemma of starting him or the in form Valencia on the far stronger right hand side.
