Top-class Patricio, Unbelievable Moutinho – The best & the worst rated Wolves stars in the 1-1 draw vs Man United

Wolves player ratings vs Man United: Here’s how the Wolves fared

Manchester United failed to give their legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson a warm welcome to Old Trafford as Joao Moutinho’s equaliser earned Wolverhampton Wanderers a point.

Fred’s first Premier League goal ensured United went into the break with a 1-0 lead despite Wolves enjoying a better first half.

But shortly after the break, Moutinho opened his Wolves account with a left-footed curler into the top corner to seal a deserved equaliser and a point for the visitors.

Wolves Player Ratings

Rui Patricio – 8/10

Patricio couldn’t do anything about Fred’s opener but he did pull off a spectacular save from the Brazilian’s free-kick to prevent Wolves heading into the break 2-0 down.

After the break, he made crucial saves off Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Romelu Lukaku to earn Wolves a priceless point at Old Trafford.

Ryan Bennett – 7/10

A fantastic performance from Bennett who stuck to his guns and defended very well against United’s attackers.

Conor Coady – 7/10

Coady perfectly dominated Lukaku throughout the game. He stayed focus, looked composed in possession and made challenges to break up the opposition’s play.

Willy Boly – 8/10

Boly was very dominant in the air and didn’t allow Lukaku a yard of space to breathe. Was composed in possession and denied Lukaku at the death, what would have been the winner.

Matt Doherty – 8/10

Doherty had an excellent game at right wing-back, bombed up and down the flank and created chances for his teammates. It was his run and cross to Jimenez which led to Moutinho’s equaliser.

Jonny Castro – 7/10

A bundle of energy at left wing-back, Jonny put in another top performance for Wolves.

Joao Moutinho – 9/10

A near-complete performance from the Portuguese star. Moutinho’s passing was top-notch and scored the goal with aplomb to steal a historic point for the visitors against United.

Ruben Neves – 8/10

Neves added steel to Wolves’ midfield. His passing was fantastic, which kept Wolves in the game.

Helder Costa – 8/10

Tormented United’s defence with his pace and dribbling skills. It was his pass from the right that led to Moutinho’s goal.

Raul Jimenez – 8/10

Jimenez led Wolves’ attack with aplomb. He had a chance early on but couldn’t beat De Gea. Linked up play very well with his fellow attackers and was a thorn for Smalling and Lindelof.

Diogo Jota – 8/10

Jota oozed class at Old Trafford with his lung-busting runs and directness. This was arguably his best Premier League performance till date.


Adama Traore – 6/10

Replaced Costa and always tried to make things happen. Gave Shaw a tough time and had a shot saved at near post by De Gea.

Came on for Moutinho and shored up Wolves’ midfield.

Morgan Gibbs-White – 5/10

Gibbs-White did what was asked out of him in the last few minutes of the game.
