Solskjaer laid into their slow, laboured style of football — which former boss Jose Mourinho was heavily criticised for before being axed in December.

And the Norwegian told his shell-shocked team to use the international break to analyse their own individual performances.

"BIG STEP BACKWARDS"

Solskjaer saw the FA Cup as a huge opportunity to lift silverware this season. He had publicly slated their display as “the poorest since I’ve come here” and a “big step backwards”.

While United lost 2-0 to Arsenal in their previous game, he felt they were unlucky at  the Emirates.

But the lacklustre  showing in losing 2-1  at Molineux on Saturday night led Solskjaer to demand a reaction.

The players had never seen him so angry  — and he appears to have learnt  the  hairdryer trick from legendary former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Solskjaer was expecting a big reaction at Wolves after the Gunners’ defeat hit their hopes of a top-four league finish.

That did not happen and he warned they were playing the same way as  Mourinho wanted them to.

Solskjaer demands a slick, counter-attack style  — but felt his players took too many touches again in the Cup shocker.

United’s last chance of lifting a   trophy now is in the Champions League, where they face  Barcelona in the quarter-finals.
