Manchester United moved four points above fifth-placed Liverpool with just three games to play thanks to a comfortable 2-0 home win against Wolves.

The result means Erik ten Hag’s side are closing on a Champions League spot and only trail third-placed Newcastle, who drew 2-2 at Leeds earlier on Saturday, on goal difference.

United’s performance will not live long in many memories but the hosts delivered in a must-win game, creating enough chances to ensure Wolves were second best throughout the contest and preventing their visitors from recording a single shot on target.

The winning goal came from Anthony Martial in the 32nd minute when the forward swept into an empty net from Antony’s pass, before substitute Alejandro Garnacho returned from injury to seal the win in stoppage time.

Manchester United visit Bournemouth next Saturday in their final away game of the season. Erik ten Hag’s side then host Chelsea on May 22 before playing another west London side in Fulham on the final day.

With their Premier League status now secure, Wolves host Everton next Saturday, before going to Arsenal on the final day of the season.
