What happened to the United side we saw against PSG?

"It was a big step backwards, I have to say". The lack of urgency forward, lack of forward passing, lack of regains.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "United lost their first league game under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week but, with the chances they had, they should have beaten Arsenal".

Solskjaer continued: "Some of the players go away with the national teams and they'll enjoy the break".

Asked whether this defeat could harm his chances of becoming permanent manager, Solskjaer replied: "I'm here until the summer, we've got loads to play for in the league and the Champions League". It's very disappointing that we're not in the semis.

His record is still mightily impressive - this was only United's third defeat in 19 games under his management - but the positive momentum of Solskjaer's early weeks in charge has given way to successive defeats.

"Sometimes when you say "on the break" people take it as "oh, they're going to sit on top of the ball" but no, that's not what they do".

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

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern had previously confirmed that 40 people were dead and over 20 were injured. In other forums, people discussed Muslim food restrictions as they prepared to drop off meals for those affected.

"We've done that quite well".

Despite having much of the ball and countless opportunities to put themselves in front, the Red Devils never really troubled the Wanderers.

"The noise was fantastic, so when you achieve something I see that we did it together".

"It is where we all want to be, in two years the club has gone a long way, we are all pulling in one direction, it is an incredible night for everyone".

Nuno heaped praise on goalscorers Jimenez and Jota after the match at a bouncing Molineux, where the manager is revered after leading them from the Championship and into the upper reaches of the Premier League and now an FA Cup semi-final.

"So, to give them back this joy and seeing our fans going out of the stadium with a smile - with a lot of beer, of course -feels good".

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