But this game alone had seven goals in store, and while United did leave with three points it was far less comfortable than it should have been.
They were totally in control at half time but ceded control slowly but surely to Wolves, managing the game dreadfully in the second half.
It was summed up by Pedro Neto's goal to make it 3-3 - scored on the break as United foolishly sought threw men forwards for a fourth of their own.
United have now conceded two or more goals in five consecutive league games for the first time since November 1977.
