Despite confirming their second-place finish with a game to spare, there was everything to play for when United took on Nuno Espirito's men away from home.

A win or draw would see the Red Devils end the season unbeaten away from home, a feat they were set to achieve for the first time in the club's history.

With a Europa League final meeting against Villarreal scheduled in just a few days, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opted to rest a number of his key players, handing youngster rare starts to shine.

And the team did just that, with Anthony Elanga scoring the opener on his debut for the United senior side.

However, Nelson Semedo equaliser pulled Wolves level, before Juan Mata converting from the spot on the stroke of half-time to restore the visitors' lead.

Solskjaer's men were able to hold out for the win which not only cemented their place in second on the log but also saw them match Arsenal's Invincibles record - having gone the season without defeat in all away games.

The Gunners have been holders of the prestigious feat, going the entire EPL season unbeaten away from home in 2001/02 and in their 2003/04 Invincibles campaign.

Reacting to matching their rivals' record, Solskjaer admitted he was proud of the achievement as he lauded his wards for getting the job done on the final day of the campaign.

United's win at Molineux saw them finish 12 points behind rivals Man City who were crowned this season's league champions.
