Romelu Lukaku out of FA Cup quarter-final clash against Wolves

"Anthony (Martial) has been training well this week".

Ander Herrera is expected to return from a hamstring injury after resuming training with Jesse Lingard, and Phil Jones is available again after illness.

Lukaku cropped the injury during the Champions League win over Paris-Saint Germain and made it more severe after playing against Arsenal last week. "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. "You're always measured on results but we played a good game against Arsenal".

"United lost their unbeaten domestic record under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the Emirates on Sunday but they had their opportunities - especially in the opening 45 minutes - and I feel they will edge the tie-of-the-round at Molineux", Owen told BetVictor.

"We have played so much worse and won games and that's the odd thing in football when you're a manager; you can look behind the result and say that was a good performance but we didn't get what we deserved".

"We weren't s--!" he said.

"Sometimes you can say that was a bad performance but we won, then you are happy".

Speaking at his Friday morning press conference, Solskjaer said, via the club's official app: "We're still getting players back".

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.

The Red Devils have been in impressive form under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since the Norwegian head coach took over the reins from Jose Mourinho in December.

Solskjaer overlooked a question relating to a recent report that Sanchez could move on and was hardly wholehearted when asked if United would one day see the best of him. "You can never be 100 per cent sure, of course, but Alexis is such a determined lad".
