Can Manchester United shrug off the disappointing defeat to Arsenal last weekend and get back to winning ways?

Two of the biggest names in English football during its inception, Manchester United and Wolves will face off against each other in the quarterfinals of one of the oldest domestic tournaments in the world.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking for a strong performance from his side after the Red Devils were beaten at Emirates last weekend, which resulted in the Norwegian suffering his first domestic defeat of the season at the helm of Manchester United.

Manchester United will need to worry about the Molineux, which has so far seen many a big team crumble against the Wolves.

The only meeting between the sides this season ended with the Wolves coming from behind to earn a 1-1 draw at the Theatre of Dreams in November.

The Mexican has put in admirable performances against the big 6 teams in all of the Wolves' previous matches.
