Nuno Espirito Santo insists Wolves’ recent FA Cup victory against Manchester United will have no bearing when the two sides meet again tonight. Wanderers reached the FA Cup semi-finals with a 2-1 victory over United at Molineux on March 16 and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team are back in the Black Country this evening.

However Nuno is taking nothing for granted and expects a different test tonight, with hopefully the same result. “That night was special for us but this is a new challenge,” said the Wolves boss. “What we did before doesn’t mean anything. We’ve analysed it and we will try to take the good things we did and try to repeat it.
“But every game is a new challenge. That was a big moment, but we know that tomorrow is completely different. Every time we play a team like Manchester United we have to be ready to compete. “We know how good they are, they have fantastic players, a fantastic manager, all the history – they’re a huge club – but we are ready and want to compete well at Molineux.
“Tomorrow we play against a fantastic team and we will need to be organised and focused. We face an opponent in front of us that requires maximum effort from us. “We will be ready for it. Football moves on and the games come fast but as I have always said, it is one game at a time.”
