History Made As Ashley Young Sent Off During Man United Vs Wolves Tie

Manchester United defender Ashley Young was sent off during their Premier League clash with Wolves at Molineux Stadium.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær's started the tie brightly and took the lead thanks to a Scott McTominay goal. They could have had a second shortly after but Jesse Lingard failed to convert a great chance and was made to pay shortly after when a short kick-out from David De Gea to Fred was overturned and Dioga Jota tied the game.

In the second half, history was made when Ashley Young became the 100th player to be sent off by referee Mike Dean, for a studs up tackle.
