Wolves and Manchester United opened today (Saturday) a busy evening of games in the Premier League when the Red Devils beat the team from the bottom of the table 0:1.
Even before the game, both teams and the English league honored the memory of former Brazilian footballer Pele, who passed away last Thursday.
The crowd and players rocked the Molyneux stadium with a standing ovation and United's Brazilian striker Anthony Hluza unveiled a shirt with an inscription in Portuguese in memory of the legend.

On the pitch, Erik ten Haag decided to leave striker Marcus Rashford on the bench following disciplinary offences, and Granazzo took his place in the Red Devils' XI.
The first half was relatively balanced and ended without goals.
Ten Haah was pressed, and at the start of the second half he brought the English star from the bench, who had been substituted, and scored in the previous round against Nottingham Forest.
He saved his coach, and in the 77th minute he completed a great double pass with Bruno Fernandes and finished like a big one for Wolves' net.
Rashford managed to score another goal in the 84th minute of the game, but after checking in the VAR system, he was disqualified due to touching the Englishman's hand.
Deep into stoppage time, Wolves almost equalized from a corner kick, but David de Gea made a huge save to keep the win for the Red Devils.
