Manchester United suffered their first domestic defeat under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Arsenal on Sunday, but the Red Devils will look to bounce back against Wolverhampton Wanderers in the FA Cup quarter-finals on Saturday.

United will make the semi-finals for the third time in four seasons if they win at Molineux, but Wolves have enjoyed a solid season after earning promotion back to the Premier League last year.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side claimed a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in the league in September, but United have since discovered more cohesion under Solskjaer.

The Red Devils haven't made the trip to Molineux since March 2012 and were 5-0 victors on that occasion, but the risk of losing their best chance at silverware this term puts greater emphasis on Saturday's clash.


Date: Saturday, March 16

Time: 7:55 p.m. GMT/3:55 p.m. ET

Venue: Molineux, Wolverhampton, England

Live Stream: BBC iPlayer (UK), ESPN+ (U.S.)

TV Info: BBC One (UK)



Wolverhampton Wanderers: 21-10

Draw: 23-10

Manchester United: 13-10



Wolves and United were both left disappointed in their previous outings, with the former conceding a stoppage-time equaliser to miss out on a famous win at Chelsea.

Solskjaer's side were more deservedly beaten in Sunday's visit to the Emirates Stadium, after which the Norwegian said he didn't agree with a penalty converted by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as the Manchester Evening News shared:

The manager said after the loss that United had hit their lowest point since he took charge:

"It has been fantastic so far but today is the the lowest we have been because we lost and missed the chance to put pressure on Spurs. We have won games we have not deserved to win and today we lost a game we did not deserve to lose. When you see the boys work as hard as they do, the attitude they show in training... hopefully we will be ready for Wolves in the FA Cup next week."

United previously went 15 domestic matches unbeaten under Solskjaer (13 wins, two draws), but Sunday's defeat dropped them to fifth in the league, two points off Arsenal in fourth. What's more, Chelsea are only one point behind and have a game in hand.

The added pressure means a trophy such as the FA Cup could serve as a much-needed consolation come May.

Wolves will also host United at Molineux after the international break, though Sky Sports highlighted the majority of the Red Devils' end-of-season run will come at Old Trafford:

Santo's side beat United at home in February 2011, when striker Kevin Doyle supplied the winner in a 2-1 victory.

However, the most recent FA Cup meeting between this pair didn't go in favour of the west Midlands club, per journalist Joe Edwards:

We're all hoping Wolves fare better on Saturday than they did in their last #FACup clash against Man United on January 29, 2006, when Kieran Richardson (who else?) scored either side of Louis Saha. Stefan Postma was in goal for Wolves. Tomasz Frankowski came off the bench. #wwfc https://t.co/0sk80mAzt1

Joao Moutinho scored Wolves' goal at Old Trafford earlier in the season, and the former AS Monaco man will be out to leave his mark on one of England's elite once more on Saturday.

Diogo Dalot looks set to start at right-back for United after Ashley Young joined Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian on the treatment table, while Alexis Sanchez is also injured.

Fred was the scorer for United in their September clash against Wolves. The Brazilian fell out of Jose Mourinho's plans but has found his way into the team again under Solskjaer and will look to replicate that impact away from home.

Wolves haven't qualified for the semi-finals of the FA Cup since 1998, but they have already knocked Liverpool out of this season's tournament and can oust another Premier League giant on Saturday.
