Manchester United thudded back down to earth after three consecutive away wins with a miserable 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The main headline from the game was the return of Sir Alex Ferguson to Old Trafford four months after he suffered a life-threatening brain haemorrhage – a sight which brought a smile to the face of even those not interested in football.
On the pitch, however, it was a banal affair, with Fred scoring his first Man United goal in a drab first half before Joao Moutinho grabbed a deserved equaliser after half time. Jose Mourinho’s men never looked like restoring their lead.
