Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has lamented the poor quality shown by his team during their FA Cup clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers which ultimately led to their exit from the competition.

The Red Devils were beaten 2-1 by their hosts in the FA Cup quarterfinal clash.

In his post-match thoughts with BBC Sport, Solskjaer revealed that the loss was a big setback for the club.

With the loss, Solskjaer and Manchester United have seen the chances of winning a trophy at the end of the season reduce with the only realistic route of a title coming in the Champions League.

Manchester United face a difficult quarterfinal tie against Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona in the competition.

The Premier League title is no longer a possibility for the Red Devils.

Manchester United produced their worst performance under Solskjaer against Wolves with the duo of Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota getting on the scoresheet for the home side.

Raul Jimenez shot Wolves into the lead on 70 minutes before Diogo Jota added a second goal six minutes later to put the Midlands club in a fantastic position.

Marcus Rashford pulled one back for Manchester United in added time but Wolves held on to claim a big scalp in the FA Cup.
