Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was grateful to matchwinner Paul Scholes after their 1-0 triumph over Wolves.
Scholes’ 100th Premier League goal to settle the contest 17 minutes from time and send the Red Devils two points clear of Chelsea and Arsenal.
“Paul had an excellent game,” Ferguson said. “That is his 100th league goal for us, which is a great achievement. He is a marvellous player.
“I felt we played the best football and we deserved to win.
“It is another away game off the list and it is a good victory because we knew Wolves were going to fight.
“We’ve had many results like this over the years and it could be significant. We showed a great determination to win.”
