United have two weeks off for the worldwide 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.

"I think in the first half we defended very well, very organised and very compact", added Nuno. "He might be training this morning, so we'll see how he is".

"Solskjaer's side actually played really well, and if they can repeat that performance then it should put them in the semi-finals".

"Sometimes worldwide breaks come in handy and we would have loved to play it again and put it right".


"You can look behind the result and say that was a good performance, but we didn't get what we deserved".

Wolves produced a hugely impressive display in both halves at a rocking Molineux, reaching the last four of the FA Cup for the first time since 1998 with second-half strikes from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota.

However, the whistle was blown soon after, sealing United's first successive defeat since Solskjaer took over as caretaker manager.

And former Liverpool FC star Lawrenson is backing Manchester United to claim victory and seal their spot in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday.


"So, to give them back this joy and seeing our fans going out of the stadium with a smile - with a lot of beer, of course -feels good". But you can't sit down and sulk for too long. "The FA Cup is the oldest competition there is". We played well and we achieved it with the fantastic support of our fans pushing us.

"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".

"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. And the mood is good, the training attitude is good, so hopefully we can keep that run going".

"Because they did their part, the noise was unbelievable through the game".
