Premier League: 3 Things We Learned From Manchester United's 1-1 Draw With Wolverhampton Wanderers

Manchester United traveled to the Molineux Stadium to face Wolverhampton Wanderers in their first away game of the season. Although the Red Devils had a number of chances, they could not get all three points due to their wastefulness, including a missed penalty.


Here are three things we learned from Manchester United's 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

3. Penalty rotation

The hot topic of the game will remain as to why Paul Pogba took the penalty rather than Marcus Rashford, who had successfully converted against Chelsea last week as well. 


With manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer implementing a rotation policy over who should take the penalty, that may change after this game and he will be forced appoint a permanent player for it. 

2. Traore Makes the Difference

Wolves had a tough time in the first half and were barely able to assert their dominance on the game, being predominantly defensive, but Adama Traore's introduction at the start of the second half changed everything for the home side, with the player being a constant thorn in Manchester United's side with his pace and strength. 


Wolves were a constant threat from that right side and created the goal from there as well. 

1. Midfield Still Needs work

Manchester United has midfielders that would be excellent if they were playing defensively or using a low block, but Solskjaer is looking to play more expansive football and the likes of Jesse Lingard and Scott McTominay are simply not up for the task. 


Paul Pogba was playing from deep and despite him exerting some influence on the game, he could not do much, especially because his midfield partners could not be more creative with their passing.
