It was an unbelievable scene at Wolverhampton with the fans so estatic having defeated the top team in the premiership. Rock bottom team Wolves who have been there for most of the season came together for the upset of the season when they defeated Manchester United by 2 - 1.
Manchester United had taken an early lead through Nani who dribbled perfectly to beat the defender and the goalkeeper to set up a 3rd minute goal. But, what followed was straight out of a fiction novel, Elokobi heading past the weak defence through a corner.
Then what followed made the fans go beserk as Kevin Doyle headed or rather cheeked the ball again through a set-piece. The free kick was taken from the edge of the penalty-spot after a feeble challenge by the defender.
It was Manchester United all the way in the second half retaining most of the possession. Wolves were very apprehensive as Man United are known to come back with a fierce battling spirit. But, on Saturday, the attacks were not that well-coordinated and lacked the spirit.
Wolves were able to see out the entire second half without conceding a goal, helping them to a precious 3-points which will make the relegation battle very interesting. Strangely, this win could not help them get out of the bottom spot as they are now tied on 24 points with Birmigham and West Ham United.
Wolves have created the upset of the EPL and will truly give them confidence to beat other teams and climb out of the relegation zone.
