"Obviously we've got a decision to make as to who is match fit".

United's list of absentees have shortened ahead of the match, but Lukaku may well be missing after aggravating a foot complaint in last weekend's 2-0 loss at Arsenal.

Their comeback win booked their place in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2014.

Manchester United travel to the Molineaux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday night in the FA Cup.

"We have played so much worse and won games and that's the odd thing in football when you're a manager; you can look behind the result and say that was a good performance but we didn't get what we deserved".

"I think we've shown against PSG that on any given day we can beat a top team", said Solskjaer.

"You're always measured on results, but we played a good game against Arsenal", he said.

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. "In United, we're up against one of the most in-form teams in Europe, so it's exciting".

United were paired with Barcelona in Friday's Champions League quarter-final draw, and Solskjaer believes that the previous round's away-goals win over Paris Saint-Germain showcased numerous qualities United will need to progress to the last four of the competition.

Thousands of fans are eagerly anticipating the FA Cup quarter-final kicking off at 7.55pm at Molineux, and long-serving Doherty insists "you can't ask for anything better", although part of him would have liked "the easiest draw possible". "Then again there are so many variables and these games will be decided by margins", Solskjaer said.

Lukaku suffered the injury after a tackle by Marquinhos in United's win over Paris Saint-Germain nine days ago.

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