Manchester United fans were heartbroken to lose to Wolverhampton wanderers on Tuesday April 2, 2019. The way they lost and what was at stake worsened the pains. The Red Devils started the game well, scoring early in the first half courtesy of Scott McTominay but they gave up the lead and lost, finishing with ten men.

Had the game finished the way they wanted, they would have risen to third place on the EPL log, and primed for the much wanted Top Four finish. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s confirmation as substantive manager was widely expected to send a wave that would push the team to a string of victories until the end of the season, like when he joined.The team started well against Watford at home but the disappointing result against Wolves would leave the team, management and fans sore. Especially when there are tricky games lined up.

Sandwiched between two tough clashes against Barcelona in the Champions League quarter finals is the game against West Ham. There are games against Everton, Manchester City and Chelsea. These games would be crucial to how the city shapes for the club so winning the Wolves game was much needed, or at least a draw. The final games are against teams battling relegation: Huddersfield and Cardiff City.

Romelu Lukaku, who started in place of the sidelined Marcus Rashford, missed a clear header in the game. McTominay netted in the 13th minute but Diogo Jota ensured the hosts drew level in the 25th minute. A Chris Smalling own goal after Ashley Young was sent off properly ruined the night for United.

The result prompted discussions at various fan pages and social media outlets as to how the team needs to make changes this summer yet another season post Fergie. Gareth Bale has been rumoured to be on his way back to England especially with Zinedine Zidane returning to the helm at Madrid.
