Romelu Lukaku out of FA Cup quarter-final clash against Wolves

Romeulu Lukaku was complaining of a sore foot during the week

Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer promised not to throw away the chance to win the FA Cup to focus on the fight for the top four or the Champions League.

The interim manager was dealt a new injury blow on Friday as striker Romelu Lukaku was ruled out of the FA Cup quarterfinal fixture.

But with Manchester City due to play their quarter-final second leg against Tottenham at home in the same week, UEFA decided to make United host Barcelona in the first leg on 10 April, after stipulating in advance following advice from local authorities that United and City could not play at home on successive nights. Every single game that you win puts another layer on that, on the way to becoming the team that we want to be.

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 beat Liverpool, we beat Chelsea, we beat Arsenal back then [in 1999], and you think "we deserve a little bit of luck in the draw next time" but Wolves away, what a hard game that can be.

Fifth on the Premier League table, United can also qualify for the FA Cup semi-finals with a win over Wolves on Saturday.

As usual, it will take a more immediate emergency for Congress to act. We're not going to be bashful about that. He called the proposal "malicious".

He added: "Any game you lose is a big anti-climax".

So they will now host the first meeting against Barcelona.

That has proved a popular move with supporters, who believe part of the club's identity involves the promotion of young players. But while the careers of Lionel Messi and Scott McTominay have few other parallels and Barca will be clear favourites, this United team have big hearts and the kind of spirit that saw the treble won in Camp Nou 20 years ago.

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. "There's so many variables and these games will be decided by margins". United have only reached this stage once in the post-Ferguson era.

"Should both clubs be drawn at home in the same week, the team having finished lower in the domestic league the previous season - in this case Manchester United - will be reversed in accordance with the UEFA Club Competitions Committee principles", a UEFA statement read, per Sky.
