Solskjaer reacts to defeat at Wolves

"Now is not the squeaky bum time like the gaffer [Sir Alex Ferguson] used to say but it tightens up and April and May and at Manchester United we narrow the focus and it's now about winning trophies, making use of the squad".

"It was a big step backwards, I have to say".

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.

"This is the poorest we've played, but against a good team. Then if we had the possession, [it was] too comfortable - I think we played it too comfortable".

"Today we got what we deserved because we never deserved to win this game".

With an worldwide break meaning it will be two weeks before he gets his players back for a tricky Premier League clash vs. Watford at Old Trafford, he has time to ponder the challenge he faces to get United back on track and ensure something tangible is salvaged from a rollercoaster ride of a season.

However, the whistle was blown soon after, sealing United's first successive defeat since Solskjaer took over as caretaker manager. Of course, we're disappointed, everyone is disappointed, but we have got to look forward and look behind the result today.

"Wolves have already beaten Liverpool under the lights in the FA Cup, in round three, but Jurgen Klopp made a lot of changes for that game, and I don't see Solskjaer doing the same".

Speaking at his Friday morning press conference, Solskjaer said, via the club's official app: "We're still getting players back". But you can't sit down and sulk for too long.

The defeat at Arsenal last weekend was in fact the Red Devils' first domestic loss under Solskjaer, ending a run of nine straight away wins. We played well and we achieved it with the awesome support of our fans pushing us.

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