Marcus Rashford on target as Manchester United edge out Wolves

Marcus Rashford scored a late winner as the Red Devils beat Wolves 1-0 on Tuesday night to move to second on the Premier League table.

Manchester United made six changes from the team that drew with Leicester on Boxing Day, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who missed the last two matches with fitness issues, recalled to the starting team.
