Comments:

League position: 7th This was Manchester United's first defeat in all competitions under manager Ralf Rangnick (played six, won three). The Red Devils had now failed to score in four of their last eight home games in the Premier League. Phil Jones made his first appearance for United since a 6-0 win at Tranmere Rovers in the FA Cup on 26 January 2020. He made his most recent appearance in the Premier League four days earlier in a 2-0 home defeat by Burnley.

Comments:

League position: 8th This was the first time that Wolverhampton Wanderers had won their first game of a New Year in the top division since 1981 against Middlesbrough in League Division One. Five goals had now been scored in Wolves' last eight games in the Premier League (for three, against two). They had now kept a clean sheet in six of their ten away games so far in this Premier League season.
