Manchester United ended the 2020/21 Premier League season with a hard-fought victory over a strong Wolves side at Molineux as the Reds made it a whole campaign unbeaten away from home.
Youngster Anthony Elanga netted his first goal for the senior team with a fine headed finish, before Nelson Semedo levelled for the hosts.
Whe loves vs Man Utd highlight
It has been a strong campaign for United with the Red Devils guaranteed to finish second and still in with a chance of silverware in the Europa showpiece against Unai Emery’s Villarreal on Wednesday.
Given the tight turnaround for that game, Solskjaer played what felt a close to full-strength Europa XI against Fulham last time out, though the 1-1 draw – which followed home def

Wolves vs Man Utd team news
Harry Maguire is out with ankle ligament damage, and it looks unlikely he will be back for the Europa League Final if he is not a substitute at Molineux at the very least.
Fred and Scott McTominay are both doubts, and are unlikely to be risked – and that means Donny van de Beek could get a rare start. Anthony Martial and Dan James are on the comeback trail, while Phil Jones remains sidelined.
It felt like Solskjaer started what would be his likely Europa League Final XI against Fulham – with David De Gea back in as the cup goalkeeper – and given the game against Villarreal comes three days after this, expect a second-string United lineup, but with current No1 Dean Henderson in goal.
As for Wolves, Jonny, Pedro Neto, Owen Otasowie and Daniel Podence are out. Raul Jimenez will not play, but has returned to training following a serious head injury earlier this season.
