United striker Lukaku a doubt for FA Cup quarter-final

Solskjaer's side travel to Molineux to face Wolves on Saturday evening, with a place in the last four up for grabs as the Norwegian seeks the first trophy of his Old Trafford reign.

"We want these games against the biggest clubs and the biggest teams".

Juan Mata is also still out for Man Utd with a hamstring injury so Mason Greenwood will be hoping to overcome illness to force his way in to Solskjaer's squad if Lukaku is ruled out.

It is a prestigious fixture and rich in nostalgia, which will serve up painful reminders of the lost finals of 2009 and 2011 and the lesson at the hands of Hristo Stoichkov and Romario in 1994, along with fonder memories of a Paul Scholes goal to win a semi-final in 2008 and a European Cup-Winners' Cup final in 1991.

United and Liverpool will meet in the semi-finals if they reach the last four, with Tottenham or Manchester City facing the victor of the quarter-final between Ajax and Juventus. It's all happening for United in April, but it feels great that the team is in the mix of the most exciting games in football again.

"Any team can beat anyone of the eight".

"You earn your luck, but sometimes it's better to be lucky than good".

"There are so many players out..."

"To win trophies you've got to win at least one or two really tough games". We beat Liverpool, we beat Chelsea, we beat Arsenal back then [in 1999], and you think "we deserve a little bit of luck in the draw next time" but Wolves away, what a hard game that can be. The confidence in the players is sky high. "And the mood is good, the training attitude is good, so hopefully we can keep that run going". It's these games our fans and this club crave'.

Phil Jones is back in contention after returning to full fitness but he hasn't played in over a month so the United boss might be reluctant to throw him straight in to action.

"I'm probably completely different to 99 per cent of managers, as I prefer away last like we had against PSG (in the previous round)", Solskjaer said. Jesse, Ander, they've been training.

"I can't really comment on Gareth Bale or specific players because they're property of other clubs but we should look for quality players, definitely, and players who could improve us as a team", said Solskjaer.
