Say what you like about the magic of the FA Cup (or their lack of these days), but when the teams reach the last eight places, they have the prize entirely in sight – especially two teams with such a legacy in the competition. Having FA Cup football on a Saturday night seems to be a good way to arouse interest in this quarter-final. The good news is that it will air on Free TV in the UK. We'll tell you how to get a live stream from Wolves vs Manchester United, wherever you are.
Wolves vs. Manchester United – Where and When
The Wolverhampton Wanderers showdown against Man United FA Cup will be held at the former venue of the former club's Molineux Stadium in the West Midlands, United Kingdom.
The game will begin on Saturday, March 1
To be honest, it's not easy to call. Manchester United must be at least a small favorite, after the heroic deeds that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken since his inauguration at Christmas as coach of the club. He has challenged the club for a top-4 finish in the Premier League, until the knockout stages of the Champions League and to bring out the best of superstars like Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford. What a transformation from the Dross Performances we produce in 2018.
But the home team, Wolverhampton Wanderers, did not have such a bad season themselves. Now in the first round and currently in an impressive 7th place, Nuno Espirito Santos' big spending side is one of the success stories of the season. People like Raul Jimenez, Diogo Jota and Ruben Neves have set the tone Wolves wants to build on over the next few years. And a little silverware in 2019 would be a fantastic starting point.
With 16 victories in the FA Cup and two teams currently playing such brilliant football, this is a quarter-final you should not miss. Below we'll brief you on the best ways to see the FA Cup action in the UK and the rest of the world, so you can be sure that you can stream Wolves vs Manchester United live.
