Manchester United's Solskjaer Lukaku a doubt for Wolves clash

Solskjaer Carrick Ferguson

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Sir Alex Ferguson are very alike as managers Michael Carrick feels

"Obviously we've got a decision to make as to who is match fit".

The trip to Wolves will be United's first game since the 2-0 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates - Solskjaer's first domestic loss as manager of the club. It's so unusual. The Arsenal one, very disappointed in the result, it hurts more than anything, but it's not like we can't look at the performance and say we were s-- because we weren't.

But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would not be drawn on whether Manchester United will reignite their long-held interest in the Welshman. "To win trophies you've got to win at least one or two really tough games that are like defining moments", said the Treble victor.

"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. They're like defining moments", he said.

However, Manchester United have made excellent progress in the cup competitions after the Red Devils were 3-1 winners against Paris Saint-Germain at Parc des Princes last week.

"Wolves haven't reached the last four since 1997-98 and I feel they will have to wait at least another year before they reach the semi-final". "Then again there are so many variables and these games will be decided by margins", Solskjaer said.

Striker Romelu Lukaku, who was ruled out of the game in a report from The Sun on Thursday, appears to be touch and go for the fixture, as United look to keep their hopes of winning two trophies this season alive.

"We have a really good relationship with Manchester United".

"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. So yes, we can go all the way but you've got to be lucky and good along the way.
