Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has criticised Manchester United’s attacking play after Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard struggled in the FA Cup defeat to Wolve on Saturday.

United registered one of their worst displays since Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho took charge and after a lethargic first half they fell behind following goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota.

Rashford struck a late consolation in injury time but it wasn’t enough to rescue United, who have crashed out of the competition at the quarter-final stage and have now suffered back-to-back defeats under Solskjaer for the first time.

And the Norwegian admits United did not have ‘enough quality’ in their attacking third and was unhappy with the link-up play between his three forward players.

‘We started too slowly and played into their hands,’ Solskjaer told BBC Sport.

‘Our possession wasn’t bright enough and quick enough, so it’s disappointing.

‘I didn’t think we had enough quality in the last third, enough combination play.

‘We had decent dominance with the ball in the first half but that doesn’t help if you give the ball away and they can counter.

‘This was a big step backwards, mainly because of the quality of the possession and the passing.’
