Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has expressed his delight at the fact that there is still plenty to play for when his side plays a replay against Wolves.
The Norwegian gaffer is satisfied with the stalemate played at Molineux stadium.
Both sides will need to play another round of 90 minutes to decide who progresses to the next round.
Manchester United were woeful on the night, unable to muster any shot on goal against their opponents.
Substitute Marcus Rashford had the biggest influence on the game for the visitors having hit the woodwork. Doherty found the back of the net for hosts only for the goal to be ruled out for a handball committed in the build-up to that goal. Raul Jimenez also came really close but was denied by the goal frame.
In spite of Manchester United’s woeful performance, where they managed zero shots on target – their worst ever game since 2015. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seemed pleased with the performance of his side.
“I’d rather have a replay than be out of the cup. We knew coming here was difficult but we’re still in the hat and at home there’s a little bit more chance of going through,” Solskjaer told BT Sport .
“It always is [tough] when you come to Molineux. I thought we played well in the first half, dominated possession but then they took over in the second half, which made it an even tougher game.
“We got off the hook when Doherty mistimed his header and it hit his arm, but I thought a draw was a fair result.
“We didn’t create too many chances but I thought we controlled it. It was just that last bit we missed, we set out to control possession. I thought we did okay.
“Some players have played and are tired, some haven’t played and probably felt the effects of that towards the end.”
