Wolves 0-1 Man United: Rashford comes on to net winner to send Red Devils into top four

Marcus Rashford was dropped to the bench for Manchester United’s Premier League trip to Wolves and came on to net the only goal of the game.

Alejandro Garnacho replaced the England striker in the starting XI in the only change from the win over Nottingham Forest.

Matheus Nunes replaced Joe Hodge in Wolves’ only change as they looked to climb out of the relegation zone.

United manager Erik ten Hag told BT Sport in his pre-match interview that Rashford had been dropped to the bench because of “internal disciplinary” reasons.

The Dutch coach would not give any further details, adding only it was “our rules”.

Rashford scored three goals for England at the World Cup, where Gareth Southgate’s men reached the quarter-finals.

The 25-year-old had been in good club form since his return to domestic action, finding the net in each of the last two games – including a fine individual effort in the Carabao Cup fourth-round win over Burnley.

Wolves and United were locked at 0-0 at the break, with Jose Sa having denied Garnacho a first-half opener.

Rashford climbed off the bench to open the scoring with 14 minutes left when he swapped passes with Bruno Fernandes and beat Sa.

The 25-year-old thought he had doubled his side’s lead, however, the goal was ruled out for a handball.
