Ole Gunnar sets six-game challenge for Man United ahead of busy schedule

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has set a six-game challenge for his side as they face a tough run of fixtures in the coming weeks. 

United face Wolves on Wednesday night in the FA Cup replay match at Old Trafford, followed by a titanic clash against Premier League leaders and perennial archrivals Liverpool over the weekend. 

They then face Burnley and Wolves in quick succession, with a Carabao Semifinal second leg against Manchester City sandwiched between the two clashes. 

Solskjaer is however confident they can maneuver the tricky fixtures and has set his side a six-match challenge.

“After this game," Solskjaer said as quoted by the club's official website when asked if he was thinking of the Liverpool game.

"We’re not in a position where we can think too far ahead. Now it’s this one, Liverpool, Burnley, hopefully, the next round in the FA Cup then City and then Wolves.

"So six games then we’ve got the mid-season break so we’re going to go all out in these six.”

United remain favorites to advance to the next round of the FA Cup but will have to be clinical and put their first-leg performance behind them. 

The team struggled away at the Molineux, failing to register a single shot on target. 

Just like was the case during the first leg, they will miss a number of players due to injuries, but will nonetheless put up a strong team.
