United concede a draw in Ferguson’s return

Mata came in on the second half against Wolverhampton, but the 1-1 remained until the end. Sir Alex visited Old Trafford again. On Tuesday, Juan will confront his former teammate Lampard on the EFL Cup, who is the current Derby County manager.

Manchester United drew at Old Trafford against Wolverhampton (1-1). A goal from Fred on the 18′ put the locals ahead in a match that seemed to be controlled. Nevertheless, Moutinho scored the equaliser on the 53′. Minutes later, Mata and Martial came in to revitalise United’s attack. ManU tried until the end but couldn’t alter the score.

The best thing perhaps happened in the crowd with Alex Ferguson’s visit after the brain haemorrhage he suffered in May. United will play at Old Trafford again this Tuesday as they host Derby County on the EFL Cup. Frank Lampard is their manager, a football legend that shared locker room with Juan Mata during the years the Spaniard spent at Chelsea. Last season, the clubs met on the FA Cup and the match, with Juan Mata in the starting eleven, ended up with a 2-0 win for United.
