Kobbie Mainoo goal wins it

Manchester United took a 2-0 lead early in the first half and was up 3-1 in the 84th minute, but two late Wolverhampton Wanderers goals tied it up – before United’s 18-year-old Kobbie Mainoo scored the winner in the 97th minute, finishing 4-3.

Goals from Marcus Rashford (fifth minute) and Rasmus Hojlund (22nd minute) put United ahead and the team had two more goals waved off right before halftime. Pablo Sarabia converted a penalty kick in the 71st minute to cut the lead to 2-1, but substitute Scott McTominany quickly restored United’s two-goal cushion.

Max Kilman scored for Wolves to make it 3-2 in the 85th minute and Pedro Neto found the back of the net in the 95th, with the hosts thinking they had secured a comeback draw – until Mainoo’s goal just two minutes later.
