Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 'Defeat 'is a big step backwards'

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 'Defeat 'is a big step backwards'

"We allowed them possession of the ball but tried to recover in the right areas".

"It's still against a good team, they've done really well against top teams, don't take anything away from them even though we under-performed, so I don't think that's part of it at all". In April and May, Manchester United always find our form and we can't wait for the challenge.

"It's a big step backwards, I've got to say".

Wolves are an impressive side - probably the best of the rest outside the Premier League's top six - and Nuno Espirito Santo's players were fully deserving of the 2-1 victory, secured by second-half Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota goals, which confirmed the club's first FA Cup semifinal place for 21 years.

United's second successive defeat brought an abrupt end to Solskjaer's honeymoon period, leading him to give his side an honest post-match appraisal.

"I think it's something natural, you can not perform to the top of your level every single time", he said.

"It was very disappointing".

As for Google Drive, while users could open Drive, downloading and uploading files has been an issue since a few hours now. Gmail has more than one billion active users globally.

"Then we will be ready to push again because we're in a great position in the league, we're in the Champions League".

United now have two weeks before they next play with the upcoming global break.

"It is a deserved result, we were outstanding", Wolves captain Conor Coady added.

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.

"You can't sit and sulk too long", he said.

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

"If they hadn't had [David] De Gea behind, then they certainly wouldn't have won as many games as they have".
