Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must address Man United's loss momentum

The Norwegian said his side have "got to go again" after the worldwide break as they bid for a top-four finish in the Premier League and face Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals. "Then if we had the possession, [it was] too comfortable - I think we played it too comfortable".

Raul Jimenez put his side in front in the 70th minute after shoving away United's defenders, swivelling around and tucking in a loose ball.

"I think it's something natural, you can not perform to the top of your level every single time", he said.

"Sometimes global breaks come in handy and we would have loved to play it again and put it right". Of course, we're disappointed, everyone is disappointed, but we have got to look forward and look behind the result today.

Man United suffered their first domestic defeat under Solskjaer last weekend when Man United were beaten 2-0 by Arsenal at the Emirates. But you can't sit down and sulk for too long.


However, while confirming 17-year-old striker Mason Greenwood has been ill this week, Solskjaer did reveal that one centre half will be back in contention for the trip to Molineux.

"We played well and we achieved it with the unbelievable support of our fans, pushing us and believing in us".

Despite having much of the ball and countless opportunities to put themselves in front, the Red Devils never really troubled the Wanderers. We did it together.

United had their chances but Wolves took charge through Jimenez's effort on the turn - and then Jota sealed it with a magical run and shot from halfway as Molineux went ballistic, with Wolves through to their first semi-final since 1998, despite Marcus Rashford's last-gasp consolation to make it 2-1.

"What pleases me more is that as I walk down the steps there are people telling me they saw the 50s and the 60s and they are still coming". Very well done to the boys and it was a fantastic atmosphere.
