Despite having much of the ball and countless opportunities to put themselves in front, the Red Devils never really troubled the Wanderers.

"This is the poorest we've played, but against a good team".

The side's captain, Conor Coady, looked back on the journey to reach the milestone of a win over one of the world's biggest clubs, saying: "We have some phenomenal players going forward".

"It's a big step backwards, I've got to say".

Wolves dominated a lacklustre United in a convincing 2-1 victory at Molineux.

However, the whistle was blown soon after, sealing United's first successive defeat since Solskjaer took over as caretaker manager.

But after being lauded for his impact since replacing Jose Mourinho in mid-December, the painful truth for Solskjaer is that this latest United performance was as poor as anything they produced under his predecessor this season.

"It was very disappointing".

"We've done well, we've got ourselves in and amongst top four [in the Premier League], we're in the quarter finals of both the FA Cup and Champions League, we've been on a good run", he said.

Writing in his column for BBC Sport, Lawrenson said: "United lost their first league game under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week but, with the chances they had, they should have beaten Arsenal". Of course, we're disappointed, everyone is disappointed, but we have got to look forward and look behind the result today. But you can't sit down and sulk for too long.

Solskjaer will know that his Red Devils side will need to be competitive and close to their best to leave Molineux with victory, as Wolves have been a hard opponent this term for English football's top teams.

"I didn't think we had enough quality in the last third, enough combination play", added Solskjaer.

"What pleases me more is as I walk down the stands there are people saying that they saw the 50s and 60s and they are still coming to the stadium", he said.
