Manchester United defeat by Wolves a 'big step backwards' - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Solskjaer applauding after a Manchester United match

United had lost their last game at Arsenal and the absence of Romelu Lukaku through injury meant they lacked presence up front against the intense home side, who sought to cancel out their opponents in midfield while picking them off on the break.

Nuno heaped praise on goalscorers Jimenez and Jota after the match at a bouncing Molineux, where the manager is revered after leading them from the Championship and into the upper reaches of the Premier League and now an FA Cup semi-final.

From start to finish we nullified them they are an unbelievable club with talented players, we said before in the changing rooms we have the chance to make history and we now have the chance to go through again. "We allowed them possession of the ball but tried to recover in the right areas".

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. Today was the poorest performance we've had. We're in a great position in the league, we've got the Champions League.

Should United win at Molineux on Saturday night, it would take Solskjaer's record as manager to 15 wins from 19 games. Of course, we're disappointed, everyone is disappointed, but we have got to look forward and look behind the result today.

Solskjaer will know that his Red Devils side will need to be competitive and close to their best to leave Molineux with victory, as Wolves have been a hard opponent this term for English football's top teams. We've got so much to play for.

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. Very well done to the boys and it was a fantastic atmosphere.
