Man United Set Impressive Record After Late Winner

Manchester United have set a English Football record after securing a 1-0 win away to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday evening.

Jaden Sancho, Mason Greenwood, Dan James came in to the United side as well as Raphael Varane for his debut.

Wolves looked the side on the front foot in the early stages. They were looking dangerous on the counter-attack, especially with the searing pace of Adama Traore. On one such break, Ruben Neves released Trincao down the right and his effort was cleared off the line by Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Dan James then lined up a strike on his left foot that travelled wide of the left post after Harry Maguire's header fell kindly to the Welsh winger.

Connor Coady then attacked a cross into the box from Neves on the right flank, but put his header over the bar.

On the stroke of half-time, Mason Greenwood was played down the left by Fernandes and his powerful effort grazed the upright after Wolves keeper Jose Sa appeared to get the slightest of fingertips to it.

David de Gea then denied Roman Saiss with a brilliant double save. Saiss rose brilliantly to connect with a cross from Moutinho. De Gea gets down low to save the header, only for the rebound to fall to Saiss but with the goal at this mercy, he struck his effort straight at De Gea, who made a fine reaction stop.

Despite having produced anything but a polished performance, the Red Devils got the crucial goal with ten minutes of regular time remaining when Mason Greenwood surged in from the right flank and fired a low strike through Sa into the bottom-left corner.

The win sees Man United extend their unbeaten record on the road to 28 matches, which is new Premier League record.

Tottenham Hotspur maintained their winning start to the Premier League season after edging Watford 1-0 on Sunday afternoon.

Japhet Tanganga had a big opportunity to give Spurs the lead in the 20th minute after latching onto a rebound from a corner inside the box with a strike that produced a great save out of goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann.

The Hornets were growing in the game after the half-hour mark, limiting clear chances from Spurs but they did not have an outlet to pose danger going forward.

Son Heung-Min eventually broke the deadlock for Nuno Espirito Santo's charges three minutes before the break with a teasing curling free-kick that evaded everyone and flew into the far corner.

Watford were a different side coming from the half-time break, as Sissoko carved out their best chance nine minutes inside the second stanza after delivering a cut-back to the near post but Ismaila Sarr's shot was blocked by Davinson Sanchez.

The Lilywhites should have been 2-0 up in the 67th minute after Kane went through on the right and played a cut-back towards Dele Alli, who only had Bachmann to beat but he dragged his shot wide.

Spurs were finding big chances on counter-attacks and Kane should have sealed the deal in the last six minutes after he was picked out at the far post by Moura but a Watford defender got the slightest touch that put off the Lilywhites talisman.

Kane almost made up for that miss for the hosts just a minute later after latching onto a loose ball from a corner just outside box but Bachmann made the save as the one goal was enough to send Spurs top of the log.
