Manchester United v Wolves: Match in pictures

Jamie Carragher has sent a cryptic message on social media following Manchester United’s defeat against Wolves.

Cristiano Ronaldo captained the Red Devils as they were beaten at Old Trafford.

The No 7 struggled to impact the contest with his second-half header ruled out for offside.

Ronaldo returned to Manchester in the summer following 12 years away and the hope was that he would lead a title charge.

That hasn’t been the case though, with some claiming the Portuguese star has in fact had the adverse affect.

Carragher made his feelings known on the signing recently, insisting his arrival should’ve catapulted United to silverware.

He said on Sky Sports: “You finish second and sign Ronaldo at 36 – you’re not going to win the League in four years. If you sign someone at 36 it’s to win right now.”

His comments led to a heated debate with Roy Keane in the studio.

Later Patrice Evra then piped up, defending his former teammate, and urged Carragher to steer clear of criticising Ronaldo.

The Frenchman said: “There’s a lot of talk about this player and I really don’t understand it,” Evra told Amazon last month, when speaking about Ronaldo.

“Some player like Jamie Carragher, he had 775 games, today Cristiano scored 801 goals. And those kind of people talk about Cristiano.

“Sometimes I just think people have to stay in their lane and I don’t understand that hate.”

Carragher has been quick to make his feelings known however.

Following the loss to Wolves he tweeted: “Getting back out of my lane!”

United’s reverse means they failed to make any ground on Arsenal in fourth.

They currently sit four points adrift of their rivals with a game in hand but Tottenham are ahead of the Red Devils and also have games in hand.

Cristiano Ronaldo couldn’t save Man Utd from defeat

Ralf Rangnick tasted defeat as United boss for the first time and was less than impressed with their display.

He told Sky Sports: “We didn’t play well at all individually or collectively. In the first half, we had big problems to keep them away from our goal.

“We didn’t press at all. We tried but we were not able to get into those pressing situations. They had an overload in midfield and they played via their wing-backs.

“We’ve been only working two and a half or three weeks after needing to close the training centre. We had the results. In times we played well but today we have to admit they’re better than us.”
