Romelu Lukaku is a doubt for Manchester United's FA Cup tie with Wolves, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said.

Speaking on the Champions League quarter-final draw, Solskjaer admitted that their opponent would be tough.

Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville suggested Liverpool would be aided in their title fight with Manchester City if they went out of the Champions League early.

Manchester United have already overcome Arsenal and Chelsea FC at The Emirates and the Stamford Bridge in the FA Cup this season. "He's being assessed. Hopefully he'll get through today", Solskjaer told a news conference on Friday.

"The confidence in the players, it's sky high". They've been training better this week.
