Nuno Santo signed off as Wolves boss with defeat on the final day as his side slipped to a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United.

Despite Ole Gunnar Solskjaer making a raft of changes at Molineux his second string had too much for sorry looking Wolves.

And with United already dreaming of that Europa League final next week some of Solskjaer’s kids put themselves in with a shout of forcing their way into his plans.

Swedish star Anthony Elanga did brilliantly as he readjusted inside the box to bullet home Dan James’ cross before Nelson Semedo netted a shock leveller for Wolves.

But despite being surrounded by youth in the United line up it was one of Solskjaer’s old gun slingers who made the difference before the break.

Donny van de Beek tumbled under Roman Saiss’ challenge in the box and the departing Juan Mata steadied himself to bury one the spot.

Wolves did look to rally themselves for Santo after the break, as Dean Henderson stepped up to keep United in front, but it’s United who head for Poland with a win.

Full Time from Molineux it’s Wolves 1 Manchester United 2
