Luke Shaw in action against Wolves.

Shaw on righting the wrongs against Wolves

Luke Shaw hopes that Manchester United will be able to leave Molineux with a positive result this time when we face Wolverhampton Wanderers on Tuesday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side travelled to the West Midlands on 16 March, hoping to book a spot in the Emirates FA Cup semi-finals, but were knocked out of the competition following a 2-1 defeat. 

Sixteen days will have passed when the Reds make the journey down the M6 again to face Nuno Espirito Santo's team once again and Shaw admitted, when he spoke to MUTV and BBC Sport after Saturday's 2-1 win over Watford, that there is an eagerness in the dressing room to right the wrongs of that disappointing night.

“After that game, especially with me slipping, I was devastated and getting knocked out of the competition hurt a lot. We need to focus now and we need to put things right.

“Obviously it won’t make everything better because it was a cup competition, but we’re focused on making sure we get three points everywhere we go now until the end of the season.

”We need to get ourselves together again and focus on Wolves. We want to go there and get the win.

Shaw was voted our Man of the Match in a poll conducted in the Official App, as the defender produced an assist-of-the-season contender for Marcus Rashford's opener in the first half and was a bundle of energy throughout down the left flank. 

With the Reds keeping up the pace set by our rivals in terms of the race for the top four, Shaw credited Solskjaer and the impact he has continued to have. 

“It’s massive credit to the boss for what he’s achieved so far in a short space of time here,” Luke said. “We’re all very happy for him and all excited for him to be here for the next few years.

”And us as players, he’s managed to turn it around massively and that's credit to him. We’re all looking forward to working with him for the days and years to come.

With the Reds returning to winning ways against the Hornets, courtesy of goals from Rashford and Martial, Shaw hopes the victory will re-ignite the Reds' drive to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League. 

“Ole's doing an amazing job so far with the way he’s running things at the club and long may that continue,” our no.23 added.

“We’re all excited to be working under him and the staff that he’s also got with him. We feel really good and confident, and fully trust Ole.”
