Wolverhampton Wanderers vs. Manchester United - Football Match Report


Yesterday's 2-1 loss at Molineux was a rare blemish on a stunning start to Solskjaer's reign at Old Trafford and a win against Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-final next week would be the best remedy.

Wolves have won more points against "big six" sides in the Premier League this season than any of the other 14 teams, taking 13 from games against United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.

"We will use one or two days to analyse and recover and then we will prepare for Barcelona, which will be a fantastic challenge for the club", said Solskjaer, who scored a famous injury-time victor in United's 1999 Champions League triumph.

United's midfield has looked exhausted of late so it's good to see that when the majority of them were rested, the players brought in performed admirably. We know it was very hard. It was a very good performance until they scored the second goal.

"We created our own downfall".

Solskjaer was clearly disappointed in his post-match comments to the media, but the boss had plenty of positive things to say about McTominay's display in the Midlands and recent form.

Ander Herrera, who has been linked with a move away from the club, was injured while Marcus Rashford was sidelined with an ankle problem.

"So that's potentially two big midfield replacements would be required if you were to lose both of them, which would be disastrous I think given the state of Manchester United's squad as it stands".

Man United played ten men from the 57th minute when Ashley Young was sent off for second bookable offense.

"Even after the red card it is always hard against United".

"The preparation for the next game starts tomorrow". There was the game, there was a game plan, we take the decisions and the options and we prepare for the next one.

"Two very good results against such a good team requires a lot and the boys worked very well. So I was very, very pleased with him". "It's not easy to play against Man United".
