Mount got off to a winning start on his Man United debut

Mason Mount made his competitive debut for Manchester United as they scraped past Wolves on Monday night.

Raphael Varane scored the only goal of the game 14 minutes from time after Erik ten Hag’s side spent a large majority of the game under the cosh from the away side, who were being managed by Gary O’Neill for the first time after taking charge just four days before.

Wolves were unfortunate not to get a penalty in the dying seconds of the game after Andre Onana clearly took out striker Sasa Kalajdzic but after a VAR check, the spot-kick wasn’t awarded.

O’Neill was visibly distraught with the decision and was awarded a yellow card for his behaviour on the touchline and after the game revealed that the PGMOL’s Jon Moss had spoken to him and apologised, saying that Wolves should’ve been awarded a penalty.

Mount meanwhile also made his first appearance since his £60m move from Chelsea but had no major impact on the game before being subbed in the 69th minute.

After his performance, TalkSPORT revealed that Mount claimed zero goals, zero assists, created zero chances, made zero crosses, won zero tackles and won zero aerial duals during his time on the pitch.

Fans reacted on social media, with some praising while others also demanded much more for the number seven.

“He’s going to be a Man U legend soon just give him time,” wrote one fan.

A second said: “He would’ve probably done better if he was under Klopp.”

“Won’t be paying too much attention to Mount now he’s ‘home’ as he put it as he sat in the United dressing room. But I’ll say this – he is going to miss Chelsea a hell of a lot more than we’re going to miss him,” posted a third.

“I’m not big on him but I thought he was quite decent,” said a fourth.

“Mount has a Mountain to climb,” said another.
