Fred put the Red Devils in the lead as early as the 18th minute, and Joao Moutinho restored parity for the Wanderers in the 53rd minute.

Praising Wolves' players for performing like it was a "World Cup final", the Portuguese coach questioned why his own squad were not playing with a similar sense of urgency.

Against Tottenham we lost the game but I liked very very much my team's performance.

Pogba will be looking to shine once again this weekend when United host new boys Wolves at Old Trafford, with Jose Mourinho's men looking to record their fourth win on the spin in all competitions.

But United insiders maintain the player is happy at the club and boss Jose Mourinho is not happy to risk letting him walk away for free when his deal ends.

United, though, have conceded only once during the winning sequence.

"It looks a contradiction, but I'm more disappointed than I was against Tottenham".

Against Wolves, however, you got that gloomy sense of deja vu: United, once again, lacking any kind of attacking direction, just huffing and puffing and hoping a chance comes, without the slightest suggestion that their manager has worked on a way to break teams down in these situations.

He continued: "I think we are going to be a better team". And I think we are improving as a team. "We came back with a good spirit, in peace because we recovered", he said.

"But I think it's going to be a very hard season, not just for us, also for the others because the others they can say exactly the same as I am saying". I could say (we were) exhausted, Champions League, bad pitch, the body suffers a different impact than (in) a match on natural grass, not coming home after the match.

But Mourinho was more concerned by what he saw as his team's poor attitude as he came close to suffering consecutive home league defeats for the first time in his career.

Brazilian midfielder Fred drove home from the edge of the area after a sublime, one touch, deft short pass from Paul Pogba. "They did. That attitude made a difference".

"Of course, we had a better result and one point is better than zero".
