FA Cup Report: Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester United 16 March

17 March 2019

Manchester United's last visit to Wolverhampton Wanderers was seven years ago, when Sir Alex Ferguson's rampant side won 5-0 against a team heading for relegation.

"I can't really comment on Gareth Bale or specific names because they're property of other clubs", the United boss is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"We've played so much worse and won games and that's the unusual thing when you're a manager". We've got to think about the longevity as well, who's going to fit in personality-wise.

With that in mind, here is how we think Man United will line up against Wolves on Saturday.

"So, there's so many things that we need to think about".

"The confidence in the players, it's sky high", he said.

The defeat at Arsenal last weekend was in fact the Red Devils' first domestic loss under Solskjaer, ending a run of nine straight away wins. "That was the poorest performance since I got here".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has earned all the praise he has received during his three months as Manchester United's caretaker manager and he has put himself in pole position to land the job on a full-time basis, but as his team were knocked out of the FA Cup by Wolves at a rain-soaked Molineux, it was clear that the honeymoon is over. Every team has quality and we can not win all the time.

Before that comes a key FA Cup quarter-final at Wolves on Saturday evening - a match Romelu Lukaku could join the likes of Alexis Sanchez, Ashley Young and Juan Mata in missing. It's the worst feeling you can have.

"It's so odd, the Arsenal one, very disappointed in the result it hurts more than anything".

Despite the late scare, it was a fully deserved victory for Wolves who edged the first half and utterly dominated the second to extend their unbeaten streak at home to seven games in all competitions.
