Magnificent Wolves beat United to reach FA Cup semi-final

Wolves 2 Manchester United 1 Wolves put a rocket up Manchester United to match the pre-match pyrotechnics and send them out of the FA Cup with all the fire of a soggy Catherine Wheel. Nuno Espirito Santo’s team were imperious to a man as they deservedly took United apart in the second half, scoring twice in seven minutes through Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota. Marcus Rashford’s injury-time consolation flattered a poor United, who that apart failed to create a worthwhile chance. Wolves have earned their first Wembley cup appearance for 31 years and are into a semi-final for the first…

Murray, Ndah: Wolves crowd can be the 12th man to beat United

Matt Murray and George Ndah believe ‘the Molineux factor’ can be Wolves’ 12th man to topple Manchester United. A sold-out Molineux will be rocking to possibly the biggest crowd since 40,524 watched the 3-1 FA Cup quarter-final replay win against Middlesbrough in 1981 when Manchester United come to town for tonight’s sixth round tie. Both Murray and Ndah played in the epic Cup ties in 2002-03 when then Championship side Wolves beat Newcastle from the Premier League and Leicester at Molineux, 3-2 and 4-1 respectively. The pair remember how much the din of the crowd gave them the edge on…

Wolves legend Kenny Hibbitt believes Raul Jimenez could be the key to toppling Manchester United – because he plays like a young Wayne Rooney. Hibbitt has been hugely impressed with the impact of Jimenez, who is set to become the club’s £30m record signing after scoring 14 goals this season on loan from Benfica. The double League Cup winner says the Mexican’s insatiable workrate is a throwback to the United and England record scorer when he burst on the scene. “I like Jimenez for the reason that he never stops working and never lets defenders settle – he’s like a…

United’s Barca test could open the door for Wolves – Murray, Ndah

Wolves favourites Matt Murray and George Ndah believe Manchester United’s Champions League progress could open the door for a gold and black crusade to Wembley. United stand between Wolves and a first FA Cup semi-final in 21 years on Saturday night. Murray and Ndah were part of the last Wolves team to reach the quarter-finals when they lost 2-0 at Southampton in 2003. United face a mouth-watering Champions League quarter-final against Barcelona next month after their astonishing comeback to win 3-1 at Paris Saint Germain in the last round. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has transformed United’s fortunes and they arrive at…
