Wolverhampton Wanderers

We must be ready for United - Saiss

12th March 2019, 12:45 by Neil Foster

Romain Saiss wants the Wolves players to be fully focused on beating Manchester United in their FA Cup quarter-final on Saturday.

The West Midlanders almost secured three points at Stamford Bridge on Sunday before Chelsea's Eden Hazard rescued a point late on for the Blues.

The result left Wolves sitting seventh in the Premier League standings after a superb reintroduction to top-flight football this term.

Attention has now turned to the FA Cup, with the Red Devils set to visit Molineux this weekend and a semi-final date at Wembley up for grabs.

Saiss is eager to sample the atmosphere at the home of English football and has urged his team-mates to prepare accordingly in the run-up to the match.

"We have to switch on for this game now," he told the Express and Star. "It’s an important game for us to get the semi-final at Wembley.

"We play at home, and we have to be ready for this game. We’re going to prepare for this game all week now and try to do something great on Saturday."

United will be a tough nut to crack under Ole Gunner Solskjaer but they did suffer their first Premier League defeat when going down 2-0 to Arsenal on Sunday.
