That is all for today - thanks for tuning in!
United face a trip down to the Vitality Stadium next Saturday as they face Bournemouth, while Wolves host Everton at Molineux.
Goals from Anthony Martial and Alejandro Garnacho are the difference as Manchester United secure a well-earned 2-0 home victory against Wolves. United went deservedly in front in the 32nd minute after Antony squared the ball to Martial, who smashed into the empty net. After the break, United continued to create the lion's share of the chances with Daniel Bentley - playing his first game in the Premier League - keeping Wolves in the game with superb saves to deny Jadon Sancho and Antony. However, United would eventually get their second, in the fourth minute of added time. Garnacho finished off a sweeping counter-attacking move to secure all three points for the home side, who extend their unbeaten home run to 27 games and move level on points with Newcastle United in third place.
L. Shaw
Yellow Card
90' + 6' There is also a late yellow for Shaw after an off-the-ball incident and some unnecessary shoving.
A. Garnacho
Yellow Card
90' + 5' Garnacho takes his shirt off in celebration and is shown a yellow card.
A. Garnacho
90' + 4' GOOOOAAAALLL!!! UNITED ON THE BREAK!! 2-0!! In off the post from Garnacho and that's the game for United! Wolves throw bodies forward looking for the equaliser and they are scrambling when the ball is turned over. Fernandes slides through Garnacho, who show great composure, driving into the box before curling his effort round Bentley and in off the post.
Bruno Fernandes
90' + 4' Fernandes has had a good game for United today and he gets the all-important assist for the second goal with an inch-perfect through ball to play Garnacho through on goal.
90' + 3' Podence almost creates something out of nothing with a rabona cross. It is aimed at Jimenez, but the Mexican cannot get the ball to drop at his feet and Maguire lashes it clear.
90' + 2' Wolves now chase an equaliser as we enter the second of six minutes of added time.
90' SAVE!! What a Premier League debut Bentley is having as he pulls off another superb save to deny Antony's latest effort. The Wolves keeper gets down low to his left and tips the effort around the post to keep his side in the game.
89' Fernandes lines up the free-kick but it goes comfortably over the bar.
C. Dawson
Yellow Card
88' Fred shows good footwork to jink past Dawson, who brings him down on the edge of the box and is shown a yellow card.
86' Fred steals the ball from the corner and United break up the pitch. He feeds Garnacho but it is a poor final pass from the winger to Fernandes, who is unable to get a shot off. He wins a corner, but then fires over the bar with his cross after United play it short.
85' Traore latches onto a ball down the right and gets to the byline with blistering ease. He drills in a fierce cross aiming for Jimenez at the near post, but Maguire does well to turn it behind for a corner which United clear.
83' Bentley makes another good stop down to his right as he denies Casemiro's well-struck effort from the edge of the box. The corner is met by Weghorst, but the sub cannot keep his effort down and it sails over the bar.
A. Garnacho
J. Sancho
81' Garnacho is also introduced to the action with Sancho making way.
C. Eriksen
81' Eriksen comes off in central midfield with Fred coming on in his place.
H. Maguire
R. Varane
81' United turn to their bench again with a triple change. First off is Varane, who is replaced Maguire.
80' An enticing pair of crosses from Wolves' right come in from Semedo, but the United defence stand firm as they look to preserve their one-goal lead.
R. Jiménez
Diego Costa
78' Another roll of the dice from the Wolves bench as Costa is replaced by Jimenez.
76' Fernandes whips in a corner but Kilman rises well to head it behind for another corner. Eriksen delivers this time but it is straight at Bentley, who claims well.
Adama Traoré
M. Lemina
75' Wolves make an attacking switch as Lemina makes way for Traore.
73' SAVE!! A superb save from Bentley to deny Sancho and keep Wolves in the game. The United winger has plenty of space down the left and he drives into the box onto his right foot. His shot is low and heading for the left corner, but Bentley manages to get a strong hand to it and turn it around the post.
72' There is a muted appeal for a penalty as Podence goes down in the box trying to get on the end of Nunes' pass. The referee is unmoved and play continues.
69' Wolves break up the pitch from a corner and De Gea almost makes a mess of it as he charges off his line. Hwang gets to the ball before him and the United goalkeeper just avoids making contact with the Wolves forward, who goes down theatrically looking for a foul.
W. Weghorst
A. Martial
69' United turn to the bench for the first time as goalscorer Martial is replaced by Weghorst.
67' Wolves are still yet to register a shot on target as we approach the final quarter of this game.
64' There is a complete miscommunication from the Wolves players as Fernandes latches onto a loose ball down the left. He cuts back onto his right foot inside the box, but his eventual effort is blocked by the retreating Wolves defence.
Hugo Bueno
62' Toti comes off at left-back with Bueno coming on in his place.
Daniel Podence
Matheus Cunha
61' Wolves turn to their bench again with a double-change. Cunha is replaced by Podence in attack.
59' WIDE!! United come dangerously close to a second as Fernandes and Antony combine well on the edge of the box. Fernandes backheels it to his Brazilian team-mate, but his effort trickles just wide of the left post with Bentley rooted to the spot.
58' Kilman with another header from a corner which is flicked towards the back post. Hwang stretches out a leg, but he cannot divert it on target.
56' This time, Semedo finds some space down the right but Wan-Bissaka does excellently up against Costa in the box, and the Wolves striker is unable to get a header on goal.
55' Kilman rises highest to win the header from the corner, but it is well wide from the centre-back.
54' A more promising period of play from the away side as Hwang has space down the right. The cross is eventually worked towards the back post, but it Is cleared well before Casemiro eventually concedes the corner.
53' Lemina is back on his feet and looks okay to continue.
51' There is a pause in play as Lemina is down receiving treatment.
50' Martial lays the ball back to Eriksen on the edge of the box but his effort is blocked. United continue to create shooting opportunities at will.
48' United create the first chance of the second half as Wan-Bissaka makes a good burst down the right. His cross is blocked but falls straight to Antony, whose effort is also blocked behind for a corner which Wolves can clear.
46' With the sub made, Wolves get us underway in this second half.
Hwang Hee-Chan
Pedro Neto
46' Wolves make one change before the second half as Neto makes way for Hwang.
Wolves have been extremely poor going forward in that first half, with Dawson's off-target effort their only shot of the half. United, in contrast, have registered 16 efforts in goal. Antony, in particular, has impressed, notching up three shots as well as one assist and two chances created.
Martial's goal is the difference between the two sides as United lead 1-0 against Wolves at the break. The home side have been much the better in this opening 45 minutes and have created numerous chances on goal. Antony fired wide and headed over with two promising opportunities but the Brazilian redeemed himself, laying the ball on a plate for Martial to smash home in the 32nd minute and put Ten Hag's side ahead.
45' + 2' Fernandes with the final chance of the half, but he blazes over with a tough chance on the edge of the box.
45' + 1' Antony breaks up the pitch with great speed from the free-kick. The winger has chances to play through several of his team-mates but he eventually opts for Martial, whose right-footed curling effort is straight down the throat of Bentley.
45' Antony catches the boot of Nunes and Wolves win a free-kick on the left edge of the box as we enter the first of two minutes of added time. Neves delivers but the delivery is poor and United can eventually clear.
44' While Antony has offered promise down the right, Sancho has still struggled to make an imprint on this game so far from the left. He tries to play a simple pass back to Martial on the edge of the box, but overhits it and the play breaks down.
42' Eriksen delivers and Bentley has to be alert to tip the ball over the bar after it deflects off Cunha's head and loops goalwards.
41' Fernandes does well to win United's first corner of the game.
39' Wolves have looked fairly toothless in attack so far this half. Nunes swings a ball into the box, but there are three United defenders against Costa and it is easily cleared away.
Yellow Card
36' Cunha gets past a couple of United players but is eventually brought down by Casemiro, who is shown the hosts' first yellow of the game.
35' United have had an impressive 11 shots so far this game, but they now have that all-important opening goal to show for it as we approach the final 10 minutes of the first half.
32' It is alert play from Antony to see Martial in space and he does the right thing, squaring it across goal for the Frenchman to open the scoring.
A. Martial
32' GOOOOAAAAALLL!! UNITED AHEAD!! 1-0!! Antony spurned an opportunity just a moment ago, but he makes up for it with an assist and United lead through Martial. The ball is turned over on the halfway line and United can break. Fernandes gets his head up well to slide through Antony, who draws the attention of Bentley before sliding the ball across goal to Martial, who makes no mistake and slams the ball into the empty net.
30' OVER!! Two quickfire chances for United. Martial tries to get an effort on goal on the turn but the Wolves defence does well to smother that opportunity. They do not do as well with the second chance seconds later, as Antony ghosts to the back post and is found by Shaw's cross. The Brazilian rises but he ballons the header over the bar from close range - he should do better.
29' Both sides are trading opportunities from set-pieces at the minute as Wolves win another corner. Neto's delivery is poor, though, and it sails over his team-mates inside the United box.
27' Fernandes lines up a free-kick just outside the right edge of the Wolves goal. He beats the wall, but Bentley does well to get across his goal and make the save.
25' Wolves continue their pressure and win a corner but Lindelof rises well to clear away the cross.
24' Up the other end, Wolves try to take a free-kick quickly down the right, but the United defence is alert to prevent Cunha's cross from finding a team-mate in the box.
22' United build possession inside the Wolves half, but Varane eventually runs out of patience and his audacious long-range effort is sliced horribly wide of goal.
20' Sancho makes a promising burst down the left, but the winger slips as he looks to cut in from the left and the play breaks down.
17' Having committed a poor foul moments ago, Costa now wins one of his own after a late challenge from Varane.
Diego Costa
Yellow Card
15' Costa, clearly not happy with how much Antony has been getting on the ball, decides to take matters into his own hands. But it is an awful challenge from the striker, and he receives the game's first yellow card.
14' Antony has got on the ball plenty in these early stages and, this time, he combines well with Wan-Bissaka, who makes the overlapping run beyond him. Wan-Bissaka cuts it back into the box, but there is no United player to sweep it home from the penalty spot and the Wolves defence survives once again.
13' Shaw delivers an enticing cross into the box, but it is too high for Martial and Wolves can clear.
11' The home side have enjoyed 76 per cent of the possession after these opening 11 minutes as they go in search of the game's opening goal.
9' WIDE!! A Wolves mistake and Antony nearly capitalises. Dawson's pass to Kilman goes astray and the latter slips as he tries to stretch for it. Antony latches onto the loose ball, but his curling effort goes just wide of the right post with Bentley at full-stretch.
8' Neto drills in a low cross from the first corner of the game, but Dawson's half-volley flies over the bar as the centre-back catches it cleanly on the run.
7' Eriksen tries to take advantage from the throw-in as he lets fly with his left foot, but his effort sails comfortably over the bar from outside the box.
6' Wolves look to have weathered that early United pressure, but a poor pass from Bentley goes out for a throw-in and gifts possession back to the hosts.
3' A positive start from United, Wolves have hardly had a touch of the ball in these opening minutes.
1' An early shot from Antony is blocked as he looks to cut onto his preferred left foot.
1' United get this first half underway!
United have won 24 games at Old Trafford in all competitions this season – only Manchester City (26) have won more home games among Premier League clubs.
Lopetegui makes just one change from Wolves' 1-0 victory against Aston Villa as Bentley replaces Sa in goal to make his debut for the club.
Ten Hag makes three changes from United's 1-0 defeat against West Ham. Malacia and Weghorst drop to the bench with Varane and Martial coming in to start. Elsewhere, Marcus Rashford misses out through injury and is replaced by Sancho.
SUBS: Raul Jimenez, Daniel Podence, Nathan Collins, Adama Traore, Pablo Sarabia, Gomes, Jose Sa, Hugo Bueno, Hwang Hee-Chan.
WOLVES (4-4-2): Daniel Bentley; Nelson Semedo, Craig Dawson, Max Kilman, Toti; Matheus Nunes, Ruben Neves, Mario Lemina, Pedro Neto; Matheus Cunha, Diego Costa.
SUBS: Diogo Dalot, Tyrell Malacia, Anthony Elanga, Facundo Pellistri, Alejandro Garnacho, Harry Maguire, Fred, Jack Butland, Wout Weghorst.
MANCHESTER UNITED (4-2-3-1): David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Raphael Varane, Luke Shaw; Casemiro, Christian Eriksen; Antony, Bruno Fernandes, Jadon Sancho; Anthony Martial.
Wolves, meanwhile, will be comparatively relaxed having secured their survival in the Premier League with a 1-0 win against Aston Villa last weekend. Today's game represents a free hit but Julen Lopetegui's side will look to spoil the party, as they eye up a repeat of last season's away win against United having not previously won at Old Trafford since 1980.
With just four league games remaining, there will no doubt be plenty of nerves in and around the United dressing room as they look to secure a spot in the top four. With back-to-back defeats and Liverpool breathing down their necks, today's fixture feels like a must-win game for Erik Ten Hag's side. They will be pleased to return to Old Trafford, though, and will look to extend their 26-game unbeaten home record in all competitions and put the pressure back on Newcastle United, who drew earlier on Saturday against Leeds United.
Hello and welcome to this live commentary for the Premier League fixture between Manchester United and Wolves from Old Trafford.
