Here is how the Twitter reacted as Manchester United crash out of the FA Cup following a 2-1 defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Manchester United faced their second defeat on a bounce under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux Stadium. The Red Devils’ hopes of lifting a silverware have taken a huge hit as Nuno Santo’s side have blown them away too easily at their own backyard.
There was not much action in the first half as both the sides created very fewer chances until Diogo Jota was not able to slot the ball into the back of the net when he was one-v-one with Sergio Romero. The hosts kept on tapping on the door of the Red Devils defense and finally got the reward through the leading scorer Raul Jimenez.
The Mexican International prosecuted with perfection when he was surrounded by many players. The Wolverhampton Wanderers striker was able to slot past from a tight angle and give the lead for the hosts.
Following the goal, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men kept on piling pressure on the defense of Wolverhampton. But, they were not able to break down the resilient backline which held up well to shut down the attackers.
The delivery from the corner was cleared by the front man in the penalty box which went straight to Luka Shaw who was the last man for the Red Devils. The left-back slotted the ball in with good intention, but the ball did not have much pace on.
The English International was then beaten by Diogo Jota who counter-attacked with great speed to beat Sergio Romero. The Argentine International was very lamenting and failed to close down the near post when the Portuguese International slotted past him.
Nuno Santo’s side were the better side and deserved to go through to the next round of the competition. Wolverhampton Wanderers, Manchester City, and Watford are the three clubs to have qualified for the last four of the FA Cup. Brighton and Millwall will play against each other on Sunday in a high voltage clash.
With this defeat, Manchester United have lost their third game under their interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer whose primary aim will be to finish in the top four of the Premier League.
Here is how Twitter reacted to Manchester United bowing out of the FA Cup to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Genuinely quite emotional, as I’m sure so many of you are. The decades of mediocrity and underachievement, the pain, the heartache, Bolton and Palace in the play-offs, successive relegations, forever failing to live up to those great Wolves teams of years gone by.

Wolves are a very good side but we were totally poor tonight. No fight, no cohesion and our front men were blunt. They deserved the win!

Madness to think Wolves are a newly promoted side. Slap this XI in a Benfica or Porto kit and nobody would bat an eyelid. That’s United, City, Liverpool & Chelsea who’ve all failed win at Molineux this season.

So, if we’re talking form, quality, likelihood etc..
Only 3 teams are stopping Man City from a quadruple.

United with Pogba :
2-0 loss to PSG
2-0 loss to Arsenal
2-0 loss to Wolves
United without Pogba :
3-1 win against PSG AWAY where a team overturned a 2-0 home deficit in the CL for the first time ever
He’s absolute shit

Wolves are into the first FA Cup semi-final since 1998. Only their second in the past 38 years.
It’s been a while. Wolves are back.

Footballs a funny old game. One minute you’re beating PSG and the next getting smashed by Wolves! It happens 🤷🏻♂️

You’ve be winning all this while but just because you’ve been drawn with Barcelona in the UCL, you’re already having the Barcelona effect by losing to Wolves.
Drawing Barcelona alone can cause a lot of harms 🤣 pic.twitter.com/bAM6kRnSs3

Hope he gets the job full time, he’s an elite level manager.

These man were really trying to laugh at us for getting a draw against Wolves, and next thing you know they’re getting eliminated by them.
Ole’s lost the steering wheel and I love this game
