Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rinses Alan Shearer with old FA Cup reference

Manchester United have advanced to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup after a 2-0 win over Chelsea on Monday.

First-half goals from Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba were enough to set up a quarter-final trip to Wolves next month as United go in search of their first trophy since the 2017 Europa League.

United have won the FA Cup 12 times, including the 1999 FA Cup, where the club defeated Alan Shearer's Newcastle United in the final at Wembley.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was quick to remind the former England striker of the defeat after his side's victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

"Well it will be a tough game going to Paris having to chase a 2-0 lead but that's fine but the league will be of course be very important to us but the FA Cup is one of the best trophies that you can win," the interim manager told the BBC.

"I think when we went back to 1999.... Alan I think you played?"

Shearer said he was having a good night until Solskjaer reminded him of the Mapgies' shortcoming with United now boasting 11 wins from 13 matches under the Norwegian.
