Luke Shaw hopes to help Manchester United claim victory at Wolves on Tuesday following their FA Cup upset earlier this month.

The Red Devils were handed a shock FA Cup quarter-final exit by Wolves following a 2-1 defeat at Molineux on March 16.

But United won’t have to wait long for a chance at getting their sweet revenge as they will meet Wolves at the same venue just 16 days later in a Premier League game on Tuesday.

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side got off to the best possible way in preparing themselves for Wolves by making a welcome return to winning ways in defeating Watford 2-1 on Saturday.

“After that game, especially with me slipping, I was devastated and getting knocked out of the competition hurt a lot. We need to focus now and we need to put things right,” Shaw told MUTV.

“Obviously it won’t make everything better because it was a cup competition, but we’re focused on making sure we get three points everywhere we go now until the end of the season.

”We need to get ourselves together again and focus on Wolves. We want to go there and get the win.“

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial found the net to secure United victory over Watford in an otherwise underwhelming display at Old Trafford.

However, the three points are all that matters at the end of the day with United returning to the top-four as a result.

And Shaw, who assisted Rashford’s first-half opener, gave manager Solskjaer all the credit.

“It’s massive credit to the boss for what he’s achieved so far in a short space of time here,” said the full-back.

“We’re all very happy for him and all excited for him to be here for the next few years.

”And us as players, he’s managed to turn it around massively and that’s credit to him. We’re all looking forward to working with him for the days and years to come.“

He added: “Ole’s doing an amazing job so far with the way he’s running things at the club and long may that continue.

“We’re all excited to be working under him and the staff that he’s also got with him. We feel really good and confident, and fully trust Ole.”
