Some Of The Stats From Man United's Draw With Wolves Are Mental
Manchester United failed to record a single shot on target against Wolverhampton Wanderers this evening and their midfield only completed two tackles.

Substitute Marcus Rashford managed to hit the bar after his introduction and Juan Mata bent a free-kick wide in their best chances.
United fans on Twitter were furious at their toothless display and pressure is beginning to build on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
0 shot on target FC. You no get shame?

0 shots on target. That pretty much sums it up. The most forgettable game I've ever seen. And the last thing we need right now is another match...

0 shots on target in a 90 minute game is just unacceptable. When Ole eventually gets sacked the whole coaching staff need to go with him. Can't believe what I spend my time watching each week.

Matt Doherty thought he'd given his side the lead in the second half but he headed the ball down onto his arm.
What an effort from @JuanMata8 earlier on!

United fielded a weakened side and they were lacking in quality throughout the pitch.
It will be hard for the Old Trafford crowd to witness an attacking performance as poor as tonight's.
Who do you think will win the replay in two weeks time?
