While the Red Devils eked out a contentious 1-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers, the team coached by Ange Postecoglou opened their new season with a controversial 2-2 draw on the road against London rivals Brentford. Meanwhile, the Red Devils' match against Wolverhampton Wanderers was marred by controversy.

Even though they were getting used to life without Harry Kane showing off his talents in the final third before he was shipped off to Bayern Munich, Tottenham nevertheless adopted Postecoglou's forward-thinking mentality in their Premier League opening with Brentford last Saturday, even though there was an amusing problem with the water supply that delayed kickoff.

Once play had begun, Spurs striker Cristian Romero scored the game's first goal, but the Bees responded with goals from Bryan Mbeumo and Yoane Wissa to level the score and take the lead. The Bees were without their own talismanic striker, Ivan Toney, who was suspended for the match.

However, a strong fourth from Emerson Royal allowed the two head coaches from the capital to share a point on the first weekend. This was a fair outcome between two forward-thinking and attack-minded head coaches, and Postecoglou will soon take command of his first home Premier League game.

Spurs now hold the ninth spot in the provisional standings after playing to a draw at the Gtech Community Stadium during the 2022–2023 Premier League season. Spurs also won each of their first five home games of the 2022–2023 Premier League season and also put together a five-game winning sequence in front of their own fans between the months of February and April.

Those green streaks faded into insignificance towards the end of the season, however, as Tottenham won only one of their final four home contests in the previous season. Despite this, they have not failed to score at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League since January, and they will undoubtedly be encouraged by Wolves' tenacious performance at Old Trafford.

A few fortunate stars were being counted at the Theatre of Dreams on Monday evening as Man United just about got over the line against Wolves owing to a Raphael Varane header, but there were plenty of concerns for Erik ten Hag as Gary O'Neil's side unleashed a wave of surprise raids. Man United just about got over the line against Wolves thanks to a Raphael Varane header.

Andre Onana earned his keep for the most part, but the Cameroonian shot-stopper survived a heart-in-mouth moment in the closing embers. Neither Simon Hooper nor the VAR official Michael Salisbury regarded Andre Onana's collision with Sasa Kalajdzic inside the box to be a penalty-worthy clash.

O'Neil, the manager of Wolves, subsequently claimed that he had got an apology from PGMOL chief Jonathan Moss – another beg-pardon to add to the list – and all officials involved have been inexplicably dropped for this weekend's fixtures; not that the Old Trafford faithful would care.

Rasmus Hojlund (back), Kobbie Mainoo (ankle), Tyrell Malacia (knee), Amad Diallo (knee), and Tom Heaton (calf) make up the quintet of known absentees for Ten Hag. Ten Hag should explore a return for ex-Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen in the central position of the field.
