Manchester United Confirmed lineup vs Wolves

Adjust Comment Print

Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was upbeat after his side were drawn against Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, insisting that they would have to beat everyone if they are to lift the trophy.

Solskjaer can call on his first choice front six for the first time since that 0-2 defeat to Paris Saint Germain a month ago, during which Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard went off injured.

"I believe that you get what you deserve in life, in sports". With an global 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. "It was a big step backwards, I have to say".

Success in either of those competitions would get United back on track, while they are also chasing down a top-four finish in the Premier League.

The arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has rejuvenated the Red Devils, after Jose Mourinho's controversial spell in Manchester. Barcelona have defeated Porto five times in the past, while the Portuguese side have come out victorious three times.

"Of course we are not happy with the game that we lost but we know that we did some great things - and Saturday against Wolves is a great opportunity to bounce back".

Solskjaer continued: "Some of the players go away with the national teams and they'll enjoy the break. Against Arsenal we just couldn't score, and this was poor". For sure they will try to win everything but we are ready to compete with them.

"This was the poorest we've played", Solskjaer told BBC Sport.

With their fans singing "We're on our way back", Wolves savoured another huge Cup victory after knocking out Liverpool in the third round and will now have a Wembley semifinal to add to their many highlights in a hugely impressive first season back in the Premier League.
