Hungry Wolves devour 10-man Manchester United, Latest Football News

United would have moved up to third in the Premier League with a victory but they played poorly and suffered a damaging defeat, just as they did at Molineux in the FA Cup on March 16.

Wolves have won more points against "big six" sides in the Premier League this season than any of the other 14 teams, taking 13 from games against United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted Manchester United can not afford many more slip ups in the race for the top four after a 2-1 defeat to Wolves.

United will have to be far better next week when Barcelona visit in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

"This was always going to be a tough game and the performance deserved a win".

"It is a hard run but we are a very good team so it will be hard for those who play against us", said Solskjaer.

In the second game since Solskjaer was appointed as permanent manager, United were poor at the back and showed little going forward, as Chris Smalling's own goal sealed their fate after Diogo Jota's equaliser.

"I think we played some fantastic stuff, first 20 minutes we should have been two or three up and I'm not exaggerating".

"Obviously they can retain Pogba if they decide to do so, but in the last week we've seen Paul Pogba give a press conference stating his strong interest in playing for Real Madrid, and then Zinedine Zidane gave a press conference saying he would like to bring Paul Pogba to Real Madrid".

McTominay will hope to have impressed enough to be involved against Barca after looking one of the few shining lights at Wolves, where he marked his 41st appearance for the club with a maiden United goal.

Ashley Young was sent off after less than an hour as United's top four challenge took a major hit. "It was probably a bad decision (from Young)".

"The preparation for the next game starts tomorrow. I was very, very pleased with him", he said. "It's not easy to play against Man United".
