Manchester United defeat by Wolves a 'big step backwards' - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

What happened to the United side we saw against PSG?

The 2-1 victory at Molineux thanks to goals by Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota means Wolves are in the semi-finals for the first time in 21 years and are looking to win the trophy for the first time since 1960.

Solskjaer continued: "Some of the players go away with the national teams and they'll enjoy the break. We had a couple of balls in behind for Rashford but not enough quality".

"We know we've played well against Arsenal last week and didn't get what we deserved, but today we got what we deserved because we never deserved to win this game". We're in a great position in the league, we've got the Champions League.

Speaking at his Friday morning press conference, Solskjaer said, via the club's official app: "We're still getting players back. If we get through to the semi finals of the FA Cup then I'll have a nice few days back home".

United have two weeks off for the global break before resuming their push for a top-four finish with a home game against Watford and they also have a Champions League quarter-final with Barcelona to look forward to.

"Of course I want him to stay, for me to say anything else would be ridiculous", Carrick told the Manchester Evening News at a Michael Carrick Foundation event.

His record is still mightily impressive - this was only United's third defeat in 19 games under his management - but the positive momentum of Solskjaer's early weeks in charge has given way to successive defeats. "The FA Cup is the oldest competition there is".

"You can't sit down and sulk too long". I thought that was maybe the biggest letdown and the urgency, because we are better when we play quickly, we play forward, we run forward. "The atmosphere was fantastic".

"It means a lot, the FA Cup is the oldest competition there is, we played well and we achieved this with the incredible support of our fans, pushing us, believing in us, the noise was fantastic and we did it together", Nuno told a news conference.
