England Professional Football Premier League Manchester United's second consecutive win was frustrated.
Failed to cross the wall of 'natural enemy' Wolverhampton.
United pitted one-on-one with Wolverhampton in the 2019-2020 Premier League second round match at the Wolverhampton Molyne Stadium, England.
Manchester United, who beat Chelsea 4-0 in the opening game, did not continue their upswing and added just one victory point.
Wolverhampton, who were 1-1 with United last season, drew in the second round following Leicester City and their opening match.
United started out with James James, Harry Mayer and Aaron Wan-Visaka.
At the forefront was Anthony Marsial.
The early momentum was good for United.
It created opportunities by maintaining a high market share against Wolverhampton, who pulled down the line and played defensive play.
The first goal came from the side of Manchester.
After receiving a pass by Marcus Rashford from the left of the penalty area in the 27th minute, Marsal shook Wolverhampton's net with a concise finish.
In the second half, Raul Jimenez's header was headed by Manchester United.
United haven't long lasted for the home team.
Wolverhampton Huben Neves scored a pass from the corner in the second half of the second to score a powerful long range shot from outside the penalty area.
A decisive opportunity came in the second half of the 23rd minute.
Paul Pogba dribbling in the penalty area, knocked over his defender Corner Cody's foot and scored a penalty.
However, Pogba's shot as a kicker was blocked by the opposing goalkeeper.
Pogba, who missed three penalty kicks last season, attempted to kick the ball instead of Rashford, who had scored a penalty goal in the opening match, but couldn't save the shot.
Wolverhampton goalkeeper Hui Patriciu accurately predicted Pogba's shot direction and saved the team from crisis.
United struck Juan Mata for the last time, except for Jesse Lingard, who had been sluggish for the 36th minute of the game and ended with a one-on-one victory.
