'Everyone wanted us to fail' - Solskjaer defiant after FA Cup triumph

The Reds ran riot against the League Two side at Prenton Park, but supporters nevertheless made their voices heard against club owners

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hit out at critics who he accused of wanting his team to fail following Manchester United's 6-0 FA Cup thrashing of Tranmere Rovers on Sunday.

United enjoyed a welcome return to form against lower-league opposition following back-to-back Premier League defeats at the hands of Liverpool and Burnley.

Harry Maguire, Diogo Dalot, Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones, and Anthony Martial all hit in a sparkling first-half performance that saw the Red Devils go into half-time 5-0 up at Prenton Park.
