Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford scored the opening goal and Kobbie Mainoo netted a superb late winner as they beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 4-3 in a thrilling Premier League game at Molineux on Thursday.

Left out of United's 4-2 Cup win over Newport County by manager Erik ten Hag, Rashford marked his return by rattling home the opening goal after five minutes against Wolves and and he helped Luke Shaw tee up Rasmus Hojlund for the second in the 22nd minute.

Substitute Pablo Sarabia pulled one back from the penalty spot in the 71st minute but Scott McTominay struck shortly after coming off the bench to restore the visitors' two-goal cushion in the 75th minute.

In a thrilling climax, Max Kilman scored for Wolves in the 85th minute and Pedro Neto levelled in stoppage time, but Mainoo struck in the 97th minute to snatch a win that moved United up to seventh in the table on 35 points.

Mail Sport's Tom Collomosse takes a look at some of things you may have missed.

Rashford may not get in Wolves team

Huge interest surrounded whether Marcus Rashford would be named in the starting XI for United but it raised another question: would the England forward deserve a place in Wolves’ current strongest XI, never mind Erik ten Hag’s?

On current form, not a chance. Wolves’ top scorer Hwang Hee-chan is currently with South Korea at the Asia Cup but departed with 10 league goals to his name.

Despite a two-month injury lay-off, Pedro Neto is in second place in the assists chart with seven, while Matheus Cunha has been outstanding all campaign and has eight goals and six assists. Even after his quickfire goal last night, his tally of five goals and two assists pales in comparison.

Fans direct ire at rivals

The South Bank at Molineux can be a hostile place for visiting players but the Wolves hardcore reacted with indifference when Rashford had the ball in the early stages of the game.

Instead their ire was focused on Black Country rivals West Bromwich Albion, where shameful scenes of fan violence overshadowed Wolves’ 2-0 win at The Hawthorns in the FA Cup last Sunday.

Within a minute, the Wolves fans were bellowing an anti-Albion chant and two more quickly followed. It must have been quite a relief for Rashford.

21 shots for United, who squandered several chances. 

Bruno Fernandes had the most attempts, with five. Casemiro had four.

United focus on loan deals

Neither United nor Wolves pulled up any trees during the early hours of transfer deadline day though both were working on deals involving their younger players.

United sent four Under-21 players out on loan to non-League clubs: Sam Mather and Sam Murray to Rochdale, Sonny Aljofree to Altrincham and Tom Wooster to Macclesfield.

The quartet will continue to train with the Under 21s and be available for some matches. Wolves, meanwhile, agreed a £750,000 deal with Spanish club Granada for attacker Theo Corbeanu.

The Canadian has never managed to establish himself at Molineux but is still only 21 and now has the chance to make an impression for the La Liga strugglers.

Fans baulk at price of scarfs

Who said it was only footballers who were overpriced in January?

One fan asking about a half-and-half scarf outside the ground was aghast to be quoted £15. 

Like many clubs this month, the fan kept his cash in his pocket.
