Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was satisfied with the Red Devils performance in the Emiares FA Cup clash against their hosts Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux on Saturday.

A replay will be required to decide who will go through to the fourth round after neither team crafted a winner in Saturday’s encounter, which only came alive in the final 20 minutes.

United substitute Marcus Rashford hit the crossbar moments after coming on before Matt Doherty had a goal correctly disallowed for handball, while Raul Jimenez rattled the woodwork for the hosts.

Despite his side ultimately hanging on to take the tie back to Old Trafford without managing a shot on target in a domestic match for the first time since January 2015, Solskjaer was pleased with the level of their performance.

“I’d rather have a replay than be out of the cup. We knew coming here was difficult but we’re still in the hat and at home there’s a little bit more chance of going through,” Solskjaer told BT Sport.

“It always is [tough] when you come to Molineux. I thought we played well in the first half, dominated possession but then they took over in the second half, which made it an even tougher game.

“We got off the hook when Doherty mistimed his header and it hit his arm, but I thought a draw was a fair result.

“We didn’t create too many chances but I thought we controlled it. It was just that last bit we missed, we set out to control possession. I thought we did okay.

“Some players have played and are tired, some haven’t played and probably felt the effects of that towards the end.”
