Manchester United Confirmed lineup vs Wolves

Second-half goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota have sent Nuno Espirito Santo's side through to the last four, where they will face Watford, Manchester City, or the winners of Sunday's last quarter-final between Millwall and Brighton.

"Solskjaer's side actually played really well, and if they can repeat that performance then it should put them in the semi-finals".

"Today we got what we deserved because we never deserved to win this game". The tempo on the ball wasn't high enough.

"It was a big step backwards, I have to say". It's the poorest performance since I've come here.

"It was very disappointing".

The hosts added United's name to a list of cup conquests that also includes Liverpool and Solskjaer admitted to being impressed by Wolves, who have already recorded a creditable draw at Old Trafford this season.

"This is the poorest we've played, but against a good team". This takes us forward, two years ago we were in a bad place and these people are going to follow us and I can't tell you how proud I am of everyone.

The Norwegian said his side have "got to go again" after the global break as they bid for a top-four finish in the Premier League and face Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals. Once the worldwide break is over, United will need them back to their best providing a cutting edge required to negotiate a hard run-in over the final eight league games. Hopefully some of them will have good experiences with the national teams and some will have a few days off. While insisting that his initial run of success was not going to last forever, he was quick to say that United will be ready to go again once they return from worldwide duty.

"You can look behind the result and say that was a good performance, but we didn't get what we deserved".

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