Man Utd boss Solskjaer expecting to face confident Wolves

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects a big test tonight against Wolves.

Wolves have enjoyed success against Solskjaer's United.

And the manager says, "They're a good side. Nuno [Espirito Santo] has set his team up really well. The recruitment has been really good and they've really built stone by stone.

"I think they've earned the right to be up there. We've had some tight games as you said and hopefully we can build on our performances last time. We beat them in the cup in February in the replay, but then again every game lives its own life. We have to start strong and hopefully we can build from that."

Wolves go into the game on the back of a draw with Tottenham.

Solskjaer added: "Yes and, as I said after Everton, every time you win a game or you have a good performance or you finish a game strongly like they did, it gives you a mental boost which helps the physical energy you need for a game. So we know they'll be up for it. They played really well against Tottenham. They've changed the way they play slightly and have different types of players in the team which we'll have to look after because they've got some very, very talented footballers in their team."
