Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Manchester United similarities to 1998/99

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Manchester United similarities to 1998/99

"I'm probably completely different to 99 per cent of managers, as I prefer away last like we had against PSG (in the previous round)", Solskjaer said.

United and Liverpool will meet in the semi-finals if they reach the last four, with Tottenham or Manchester City facing the victor of the quarter-final between Ajax and Juventus. "Of course, with Cristiano [Ronaldo] still in it I don't think it's opened up that much".

United beat Chelsea and Arsenal on their way to winning the 1999 FA Cup, an achievement matched in this year's competition already, and they face another tough game against Wolves at Molineux on Saturday evening in the quarter-finals.

Let's put excitable thoughts of Manchester United versus Barcelona and a possible Champions League semifinal against FC Porto aside for a minute and think about Wolverhampton, venue for United's Saturday's FA Cup sixth-round game (3:55 p.m. ET, ESPN+).

Meanwhile in the Champions League, United fought back from a 2-0 home defeat against Paris Saint-Germain to progress to the quarter-finals last week, a late Marcus Rashford penalty sealing the win. "Phil Jones is back so we're looking stronger".

"I believe that you get what you deserve in life, in sports". "If you work hard, show the right attitude, you can maximise your chances".

It is a prestigious fixture and rich in nostalgia, which will serve up painful reminders of the lost finals of 2009 and 2011 and the lesson at the hands of Hristo Stoichkov and Romario in 1994, along with fonder memories of a Paul Scholes goal to win a semi-final in 2008 and a European Cup-Winners' Cup final in 1991.

Liverpool have previously taken part in six quarter-finals in the Champions League era, all of which have been post-2000.

'We want these games against the biggest clubs and the biggest teams.

"We're not challenging to win the league this year but we are challenging for the other two trophies". They've been training better this week.

Tickets for the Wolves game are rarer than hens' teeth, and 4,500 travelling fans (14,500 season ticket holders applied for a ticket) will be fortunate enough to be at the game.

"We have a really good relationship with Manchester United".

During his tenure, Mourinho had hoped to sign Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, but Solskjaer was unwilling to discuss the Welshman, who has been booed by some Real supporters this season.

"The draw is just around the corner for the Champions League and we can't wait to find out who we'll play".
