Emotions ran high yesterday as Manchester United were dumped out of the FA Cup, with a 2-1 loss at Wolverhampton Wanderers in the quarterfinals. United central defender Victor Lindelof was totally livid after he was shown a straight red card by referee Martin Atkinson.

Lindelof initially received the harshest punishment possible for his hack on the opposing Diego Jota, but VAR led to the infraction being changed to a yellow. Television cameras caught the Swedish international screaming at the Wolves bench, and you can see the footage of that here:

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Slams His Team’s Performance as United Eliminated from FA Cup

We always wondered how the Manchester United of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would react to their first Premier League loss, and the answer, which came yesterday, was not encouraging at all. United were dumped out of the FA Cup in the quarterfinals yesterday with a 2-1 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Molineux.

After the match, Solskjaer gave a scathing assessment of his own team’s dreadful performance. He said it was the worst outing that he’s seen from them, and that it was a couple steps backward from all the progress the Red Devils have made.

Talk of Jurgen Klopp managing Germany, or Bayern Munich someday has been around for a long while, and it’s a discussion that will probably never go away as long as the German is managing football games. Bayern and German national team legend Franz Beckenbauer is nicknamed “Der Kaiser,” and that tells you all that you need to know about the weight his opinion carries.

Kaiser Beckenbauer would like to see the Liverpool manager lead Bayern someday, saying: “Jurgen Klopp at FC Bayern. That would be the highlight. Jurgen was the one who taught the Germans how to play football quickly.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Confident United Can Make Nou Camp Magic Again in UCL

Manchester United Interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is feeling very confident about his UEFA Champions League draw, despite the commonly held belief that his side got the toughest assignment. United will face FC Barcelona, a strong contender to win the competition, in the UCL quarterfinals.

You might recall that the Nou Camp was the location of the dramatic 90′ game winning goal that Solskjaer, nicknamed the “baby faced assassin” in his playing days, scored for United in the 1999 Champions League final triumph over Bayern Munich.

Heading into the weekend clash at Fulham FC, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp lavished heavy praise upon central defender Joel Matip for his displays during an injury riddled patch.

Liverpool FC at Fulham Injury Report: Henderson, Keita, Gomez, Schurrle, Mawson

Liverpool FC visits Fulham on Sunday in a match-up of two teams that reside at opposite ends of the Premier League spectrum. The Reds sit second and still have everything to play for, while the Craven Cottagers are second from bottom and essentially staring at a 99.999% chance of getting relegated.

Safe to say they have nothing left to play for but pride in this one. This series has been extremely one-sided recently with Liverpool winning the last five, out-scoring the London side 16-3 on aggregate.

Chelsea face a quick turnaround as they travel back from Kiev on Thursday night and then play at Everton on Sunday afternoon. The good news is that they will take on a team that has won just one of their last eight home games, so you got to like the Blues’ chances in this one.

Chelsea are currently sitting sixth in the Premier League table, one point behind Manchester United and two behind Arsenal, but they have a game in hand on both. It promises to be a really fierce run-in here over the last eight games.

Manchester City Starting XI Prediction, Team News at Swansea City (FA Cup)

Manchester City heads to the Liberty Stadium tomorrow night for a FA Cup quarterfinal clash against Swansea City, marking the first time that the two sides have met in this competition. Overall, the Swans are winless in their previous 13 meetings with City, losing all but two.

Their prospects don’t look very good on the weekend either. Manager Pep Guardiola probably won’t be too focused on squad rotation in this one, as he’s been able to give some substitutes some work in lately, and he has an international break coming up with which to rest guys.
