Solskjaer seeks Champions League solace after Wolves setback

Wolves reached the FA Cup semi-finals for the first time since 1998 with victory over Manchester United

Solskjaer failed to call out his team's poor performance - which is something Jose Mourinho did quite often - and that, apparently, is what Ole should have done.

"We didn't pounce on big moments in the game", said Solskjaer.

The result left United, which was reduced to 10 men in the second half, fifth on 61 points, behind Tottenham Hotspur on goal difference, denting its hopes of ending the season in the top four and qualifying for next year's Champions League.

"I was very pleased with the amount of chances, with the intent in the way we started the game and played", he said.

As soon as the caretaker role became a full-time post last week, attention turned to transfer activity as the 1999 treble hero attempts to take them back to the top of the English game.

Lingard should have doubled United's lead from close range only for Patricio to tip his header away from goal, but Wolves were able to appreciate the reprieve and they promptly capitalised through a mistake from Fred.

Meghan could shun royal tradition with birthing plan
The public has speculated plenty over the past six months, but details won't be unwrapped until the royal baby actually arrives. According to Ms Dunne, Meghan told her: "I'm so happy to finally meet you, I've heard so much about you".

Having criticised his team after the 2-1 win over Watford at the weekend, Solskjaer was forgiving about yesterday's setback, United's second 2-1 defeat at Wolves after last month's FA Cup sixth-round loss, saying United created enough chances to win.

Wolves created chances to extend their lead, with only a save from De Gea preventing Smalling from putting through his own net for a second time and Ivan Cavaleiro hitting the crossbar from 12 yards.

Solskjaer has insisted publicly that midfielder Paul Pogba will remain at United despite expected interest from Real Madrid, with the list of probable targets likely to see the club target younger players.

On Ashley Young's sending off, he added: "When you're on a yellow and you go in you're always in danger of getting another one". We reacted well. It's not easy to play against Man United. We didn't want them to put pressure on us.

"Good performance, in the beginning they started better and controlled the game", Nuno said. "The way we went forward was wonderful".
