Roberto Mancini's men face struggling Wolves at Molineux at 4pm and could potentially be only a win behind the Old Trafford outfit ahead of the Manchester derby next Monday
The Red Devils looked to be cruising to a 4-2 victory with 10 minutes of the game remaining and, in doing so, restore their eight-point lead at the top of the table.
Late goals from Nikica Jelavic and Steven Pienaar, however, secured a dramatic point for David Moyes’ men. United are now just six points ahead of title rivals Manchester City, who travel to Wolves later this afternoon.
Victory for Roberto Mancini’s side at Molineux would not only relegate Terry Connor’s men, but also see the Citizens pull to within one victory of the Red Devils – which could come against their Manchester rivals at the Etihad Stadium a week on Monday.
The pendulum has swung once again, this time in favour of City, but both sides’ title hopes remain in their own hands with just three games of the season remaining after this weekend’s action.
