Man United look more like title pretenders after opening game

MANCHESTER, England -- Could Manchester United be genuine title contenders?

It's a question that's been asked all summer and, after 90 minutes against Wolverhampton Wanderers, we're no nearer an answer.

For most of the night at Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag's team looked nowhere near but then Aaron Wan-Bissaka flicked the ball into the penalty area and Raphaël Varane -- of all people -- headed in a winner.

The 1-0 win probably wasn't deserved because, at times, the home crowd seemed more determined to will the ball into the net than the players, but they all count and United have started the new Premier League campaign with a win.
