Michael Owen states his prediction for Wolves v Man United in FA Cup
Former Manchester United striker Michael Owen is backing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side to ease past Wolves in the FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday
Michael Owen is confident Manchester United will reach the FA Cup semi-finals thanks to a victory over Wolves on Saturday evening.
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.
The Manchester United interim manager suffered his first Premier League defeat last weekend after the Red Devils lost 2-0 to their top-four rivals Arsenal.
The Gunners hoisted themselves above Solskjaer’s side and into fourth place in the Premier League table in the race to secure a Champions League spot.
However, Manchester United have made excellent progress in the cup competitions after the Red Devils were 3-1 winners against Paris Saint-Germain at Parc des Princes last week.
Their comeback win booked their place in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2014.
Manchester United have already overcome Arsenal and Chelsea FC at The Emirates and the Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup this season.
Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing Manchester United to ease past Wolves in the quarter-final clash on Saturday evening.
“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.
“Wolves haven’t reached the last four since 1997-98 and I feel they will have to wait at least another year before they reach the semi-final.”
Manchester United lost 2-0 to PSG at Old Trafford in the first leg before an incredible 3-1 victory in Paris sealed their progress in the Champions League on away goals.
