Manchester United’s three games winning streak was halted by Wolves, as the newly promoted side ensured a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. United took the lead from a beautiful strike from Brazilian midfielder Fred early first half. But the visitors took control of early second half which earned them a deserved equalizer when Joao Moutinho found the top corner of the post. United tried to force a winner by throwing all they have forward but were unable to find a way past a strong wall Wolves’ defence, this also nearly cost United as Wolves remained a big threat on the counter until the final whistle.

Tottenham back to winning ways at Brighton winning 2-1. Harry Kane ended his goal drought after Glenn Murray’s handball earned him an opportunity from the spot which he buried. Erik Lamela made it 2-0, but Brighton grabbed an injury-time consolation goal from Anthony Knockaeart.
