Man United beaten by Wolves

Martial is believed to have aggravated the injury during United’s FA Cup quarter-final draw vs Wolves.

Man United’s loss to Wolves, according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, was their worst display during his tenure at Old Trafford.

Wolves spent the game sitting back, soaking up the United pressure and counter-attacking.

This gave them a 2-1 win thanks to goals for Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota.

Wolves have since been drawn against Watford for the upcoming FA Cup semi-finals. Manchester City will face Brighton in the remaining tie.
