A draw at home to Wolves was not the result Manchester United wanted.
Let’s focus on the positives on the pitch from the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
FredAfter a promising performance in midweek against Young Boys it was great to see Fred score his first Manchester United goal.
The summer signing lived a dream by netting at Old Trafford, sending the crowd wild midway through the first half.
This will lift his confidence and help him play more freely. It was just a disappointment to see the Brazilian substituted in the second half.
The World Cup winner can flit in and out of games and today was no different – but his contribution for Fred’s goal was special.
He laid off a wonderful one-touch flick to give Fred an extra yard of space which he was able to take advantage of to score.
Pogba has his high profile detractors who feel he should contribute more, yet this season he has managed an impressive four goals and two assists in seven games.
Andreas PereiraWith United chasing a winner, it was a show of faith from Jose Mourinho to turn to the bench and bring on Andreas Pereira.
The Brazilian came so close to scoring a late winner from a free-kick and repaying his manager.
The 22-year-old is still making adjustments to the frenetic pace of the Premier League but clearly has quality. It is good to see he is still getting chances and he deserves more.
