Jordan Pickford needs to find form, Watford and Palace have scores to settle and there’s a huge game at Elland Road
After winning at Arsenal and Chelsea in earlier rounds, Manchester United face another difficult away tie, this time at Molineux. A Saturday night duel under the floodlights, with a Wembley appearance up for grabs, is sure to generate a noisy atmosphere. That will give extra impetus to a Wolves team who have enjoyed a fine season so far, and been particularly strong against top-six teams. Recognising that, and the way Wolves shackled Chelsea for long periods last weekend, Ole Gunnar Solskjær may take a cautious approach and look to strike through counter-attacks. This has the makings of a tight game and a showdown that could go all the way to a late-night shootout. PD
