Wolves 2-1 Manchester United: Wanderers see off ten-man Red Devils thanks to late Chris Smalling own-goal

A late Chris Smalling own-goal saw Wolves overcome ten-man Manchester United in a dramatic clash at Molineux.

The visitors started well but wasted a number of chances either side of Scott McTominay’s superb first goal for the club, allowing Diogo Jota to level before Ashley Young became the recipient of Mike Dean’s 100th Premier League red card.

Smalling bundled the ball into his own net late on

Smalling’s own goal sealed Wolves’ 2-1 comeback win, sending them to Wembley in high spirits as Solskjaer’s men not only blew the chance to exact revenge but also to reassert themselves in the top-four race.

United should have been three up midway through the first half, with Romelu Lukaku – in for the injured Marcus Rashford – and Jesse Lingard wasting glorious opportunities in between a fine McTominay strike.
