Jimenez, Jota slay United as Wolves reach FA Cup semis

"There's so many factors you need to think about when you sign players".

Mark Lawrenson is tipping Manchester United to claim a 2-0 win over Wolves and seal their spot in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday night.

"But we can't look at the performance and say we were s**t because we weren't, to be honest and blunt, we weren't, we played well".

"Momentum", said Solskjaer, when asked if being in so many competitions could damage United's top-four chances.

It is the first time United have lost back-to-back games since Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December, having also been beaten by Arsenal in the Premier League last Sunday. It's so unusual, the Arsenal one. Of course, we're disappointed, everyone is disappointed, but we have got to look forward and look behind the result today.

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.

"We've been on a good run's not "squeaky bum time" like the gaffer used to say, but it tightens up".

"It is a deserved result we were outstanding".

"Some friends have reminded me of that final 20 years ago, but this is a new challenge", he concluded. I had until May to do whatever I could with the team, and playing style, mood, everything, has been going well.

"If you can get a decent result at home then we can go away and beat anyone, like we did in Paris".

The likes of Arsenal and Chelsea mostly have easy games for the remainder of the league season but Man United will have to face the likes of Man City, Everton and Chelsea.
