3 things learned as Manchester United suffer crushing defeat to Wolves

Since then the global break has been and gone, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was named permanent manager and United narrowly beat Watford 2-1 to keep their top four hopes alive.

It's titled "oLe's aT tHe wHeeL" and starts with Solskjaer's unveiling as United manager, followed by Rio Ferdinand saying, "Man Utd are back", before turning dark and gloomy.

United remain fifth in the Premier League, behind Tottenham on goal difference, with six games left and face Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final first leg next week.

United came flying out of the traps and took the lead through Scott McTominay, but ended up falling to a second 2-1 defeat to Nuno Espirito Santo's side in the space of three weeks.

"It happens. It's just a couple of bad decisions but that's football, we trust them to play and they played some great football but the downside is you take some risks".

"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. Or could have. We created our own downfall really. Our performance deserved the win. Here are three things we learned. Wolves at two chances, both due to mistakes from United players', and they scored two goals.

United, though, should have been 3-0 up inside 16 minutes as Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard missed glorious chances either side of McTominay scoring his first goal for the club.

"The other two speak for themselves, no matter how form is, both of them carry class in their team and are very capable of getting a result against Manchester United".

Indeed, United, who went down to 10 men from the 57th minute after Ashley Young was sent off for a second yellow card, had begun brightly. "We created enough chances to win the game so I don't think there's any "resetting" (after his fast start as United manager)". "He reached the ball, and it was just a little bit too high".

"The preparation starts now for the semi-final - we will rest and prepare for a hard game".
