Wolves 'controlled everything' against Manchester United, says Bruno Lage

Wolves boss says Old Trafford win was a dominant one for his side.

Wolves boss Bruno Lage believes his side 'controlled everything' as they downed Manchester United at Old Trafford.

It was Wolves' first win at Man Utd since 1980, with a late Joao Moutinho stike ending Ralf Rangnick's unbeaten start to life as the Red Devils' interim manager.

Wolves were especially dominant in the first half before having to survive a few nervy moments after the break, although there could be little denying they deserved the win on the balance of play.

"Look, it's one more victory," Lage told Sky Sports after the game.

"It's a lovely stadium, a place with a lot of history, but the most important thing is the way we played in this game against this team.

"I think we prepared very well for the game and gave a lot of confidence to my players to come and to play in our way.

"First half, it was very good. We controlled everything, we created a lot of chances and we didn't score.

"Second half, they adapted, changed the system and after we also changed and the guys who came in helped us to win this game."

Matchwinner Moutinho added: "Getting a goal, winning here at Old Trafford against a big team, very good players, a good coach, it's amazing for us.

"We came here to play our game, play football, play with the ball - that's what we do. Particularly in the first half we created a lot of opportunities, a lot of shots, but we didn't score.

"They changed to three centre-backs and played like us in the second half and they had a little bit more of the ball, but we controlled everything. We let them create only one opportunity on the bar, but that's it.

"I think we deserved it because of what we did in 90 minutes."
