Scott McTominay Manchester United's surprise top performer vs Wolves

United would have moved up to third in the Premier League with a victory but they played poorly and suffered a damaging defeat, just as they did at Molineux in the FA Cup on March 16.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United should have beaten Wolves and thinks they need 15 points from their last six games to reach the top four.

"We will use one or two days to analyse and recover and then we will prepare for Barcelona, which will be a fantastic challenge for the club", said Solskjaer, who scored a famous injury-time victor in United's 1999 Champions League triumph.

United remain fifth, but their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League via a top-four finish will be further dented if Tottenham and Chelsea win on Thursday.

"After the red card our task is not so hard, of course it is always unsafe against a hard team, but it makes me proud against such a good team". It was a very good performance until they scored their second goal.

'I was sitting with the boys in the changing room thinking: "How have we not won that game?"

"Obviously they can retain Pogba if they decide to do so, but in the last week we've seen Paul Pogba give a press conference stating his strong interest in playing for Real Madrid, and then Zinedine Zidane gave a press conference saying he would like to bring Paul Pogba to Real Madrid".

Man United played ten men from the 57th minute when Ashley Young was sent off for second bookable offense.

Wolves grew into the game and were on level terms by the 25th minute when a bad giveaway from Fred allowed the hosts to score, Diogo Jota beating David De Gea from an incisive Raul Jimenez through ball. If there's one thing I can complain about it is being more clinical.

"The preparation for the next game starts tomorrow".

'Of course, it was against a great team, but we want to do our job and we are very happy with the result'. "It's not easy to play against Man United".
