Wolves Have Knocked Manchester United Out Of The FA Cup

Wolves Have Knocked Manchester United Out Of The FA Cup

But ahead of the trip to Wolves in the FA Cup (live on Saturday at 3:55 p.m. ET on ESPN+), Solskjaer has sided with Jurgen Klopp and said he will not be prioritising one competition over another. I felt, without the ball, we did okay in the first half but the tempo on the ball wasn't high enough.

"It was a big step backwards, I've got to say", Solskjaer said. "That was the poorest performance we have had". It's very disappointing that we're not in the semis.

Towards the end of an even first half Wolves caught United out with a threaded pass from Ruben Neves into Jota, who found himself clean through as he entered the box but Argentine keeper Romero made himself big and produced an impressive save.

The hosts added United's name to a list of cup conquests that also includes Liverpool and Solskjaer admitted to being impressed by Wolves, who have already recorded a creditable draw at Old Trafford this season.

Solskjaer continued: "Some of the players go away with the national teams and they'll enjoy the break".




Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "United lost their first league game under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week but, with the chances they had, they should have beaten Arsenal".

United's caretaker manager was quick to remind the fans that there is still plenty to play for when domestic football restarts with a home game against Watford on March 30. "International breaks sometimes come in handy".

"But of course, you can't sit down and sulk too long". While insisting that his initial run of success was not going to last forever, he was quick to say that United will be ready to go again once they return from worldwide duty.

"We've played so much worse and won games and that's the unusual thing when you're a manager".

"You can look behind the result and say that was a good performance, we didn't get what we deserved". A couple of times we played Rashy [Marcus Rashford] through the middle, in behind the centre-backs.
