Wolver­hampton Wan­derers 2 Man­chester Uni­ted 1, Mo­lineux Sta­dium, Eng­lish FA Cup Quart­er-Fi­nal, Mar­ch 16, 2019. Af­ter dis­patch­ing of Chel­sea in the pre­vi­ous ro­und of the tour­na­ment, Man­chester Uni­ted suc­cumbed to a sur­prise 2-1 de­feat at the hands of Wol­ves. United´s con­sol­a­tion goal was sco­red by Mar­cus Rash­ford five min­utes in­to stop­page time.

Man­chester Uni­ted Head Coach Ole Gun­nar Sol­skjaer had to make do with­out the phys­ic­al pres­ence of Mat­teo Dar­mian, Ju­an Ma­ta, Ro­melu Lu­kaku, Alex­is San­chez, and An­tonio Va­lencia who were all side­lined wi­th dif­fer­ent in­jury prob­lems, where­as Ash­ley Young was out wi­th sus­pen­sion. Man­chester Uni­ted and Wolver­hampton Wan­derers had last en­countered each oth­er on the 22nd of Septem­ber 2018 when the two te­ams played out an en­ter­tain­ing and closely con­tested 1-1 Pre­mier Lea­gue draw at Old Traf­ford. Fol­low­ing a goal­less fir­st-ha­lf at Mo­lineux, Raul Ji­me­nez gave Nu­no Es­pirito San­to’s men the up­per hand in the 70th min­ute of the the FA Cup fix­ture be­fore strik­ing part­ner Dio­go Jota re­gistered a sec­ond goal for the ho­me out­fit just six min­utes la­ter. Man­chester Uni­ted fi­nally ma­naged to put the ball in the Wolver­hampton goal when Mar­cus Rash­ford power­ed an un­stoppable low shot from in­side the pen­alty area which flew pa­st Wan­derers shot stop­per John Rud­dy and in­to the bot­tom right cor­ner of the net in the 95th min­ute of the clash, but it was too late for the vis­it­ing si­de to find an equal­iser.
