Neves wonder-strike earns a point for Wolves against Man Utd

EPL By: Ikponmwosa Umweni | 19/08/2019

Ruben Neves' second-half wonder-strike earns a point for Wolves in the 1-1 scored draw with Manchester United at Molineux on Monday night encounter.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made only one change to his side as Daniel James replaced Andreas Pereira, the Welshman looking to build on his debut goal against Chelsea. 

Anthony Martial has put Red Devils up front in the 27th minute after good work from team-mate Marcus Rashford.

Raul Jimenez went close to scoring soon the restart but could only steer his header onto the post and off David de Gea.

Portugal international Neves equalised after the break with a stunning strike from 20 yards.

With the scoreline 1-1, the Frenchman won a spot-kick when he was fouled by Conor Coady but then saw his resulting effort brilliantly saved by Rui Patricio in the 68th minute.

Manchester United are back in action at Old Trafford on Saturday when they host Crystal Palace, while Wolves travel to Turin on Thursday for the first leg of their UEFA Europa League play-off against Torino.
