Ole Gunnar Solskjaerhailed the performance ofMan Utdyoungster Tahith Chong following his side’s0-0 draw with Wolves.

United traveled to Molineux for the FA Cup third round clash withWolveson Saturday – whom they were eliminated by in last season’s competition.

Solskjaer opted to use the fixture as an opportunity to rest some of his key first-team stars, with Marcus Rashford left on the bench, while Anthony Martial was omitted completely.

The absence of both players gaveChonga chance to impress on the right side of a front three, and Solskjaer was “very pleased” with his efforts.

Solskjaer said: “I’d rather have a replay than being out of the cup, of course. We knew coming here was difficult, but we’re still in the hat, and at home there’s a little bit more chance to go through. “
