"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".

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.

Solskjaer continued: "Some of the players go away with the national teams and they'll enjoy the break". We didn't have the urgency or quality on the ball, the tempo wasn't high enough and we played into their hands.

"We know we've played well against Arsenal last week and didn't get what we deserved, but today we got what we deserved because we never deserved to win this game".

"You can look behind the result and say that was a good performance, we didn't get what we deserved".

"Sometimes global breaks come in handy and we would have loved to play it again and put it right. We will respect everybody in the semi-finals".

Romelu Lukaku and Luke Shaw have already come out to publicly back Solskjaer and Carrick said that feeling is echoed by everyone at the club.

"What was missing? Quite a lot really", Solskjaer said after the game.

However, the whistle was blown soon after, sealing United's first successive defeat since Solskjaer took over as caretaker manager.

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 had composure, shape, good running. But you can't sit down and sulk for too long.

"It means a lot, the FA Cup is the oldest competition there is, we played well and we achieved this with the unbelievable support of our fans, pushing us, believing in us, the noise was fantastic and we did it together", Nuno told a news conference. Very well done to the boys and it was a fantastic atmosphere.
