WOLVES AND MAN UTD LIVE TO FIGHT AGAIN IN FA CUP

Manchester United and Wolves played out a goalless draw on Saturday evening in the FA Cup, meaning the two sides will have to play once more at Old Trafford to decide who goes through to the next round of the competition. 

United dominated possession in the early stages of the game, but it was Wolves who created the first notable opportunity. Matt Doherty’s ferocious strike from inside the area was expertly saved by Sergio Romero. 

The away side thought they should have been awarded a penalty with half an hour on the clock for a challenge on Brandon Williams, but VAR deemed it not to be a foul. The hosts made the brighter start to the second half and it was Pedro Neto who forced Romero into action once more, but he was equal to it. 

However, Juan Mata came close ten minutes into the second half. His free-kick wrong-footed John Ruddy, but luckily for the shot-stopper, the ball flew just past the post. Second half substitute Marcus Rashford came on and hit the bar just 27 seconds later with a deflected strike, but Raul Jimenez later hit the woodwork for the home side. Both sides continued to search for a winner, but there wasn’t to be one.
