Thousands of fans are eagerly anticipating the FA Cup quarter-final kicking off at 7.55pm at Molineux, and long-serving Doherty insists "you can't ask for anything better", although part of him would have liked "the easiest draw possible". "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".

Meanwhile, Ander Herrera is expected to return to first team duties against Wolves after recovering from a hamstring injury.

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.

However, Romelu Lukaku is a major doubt after picking up a foot problem against the Gunners.


Lukaku has suffered a foot injury is set to miss out after undergoing a scan.

"I think we've shown against PSG that on any given day we can beat a top team", said Solskjaer.

Alexis Sanchez is out with a knee injury and Solskjaer said the forward was seeking treatment in Barcelona and "still a few weeks away" from returning to fitness.
