United slipped to their third defeat in four games in all competitions and their second at Molineux in the space of three weeks to remain fifth in the Premier League table on a night when they could have risen to third with a victory.
'I thought we handled it quite well, but it's never easy to go down to 10 men and they can switch the ball and keep it, ' McTominay told MUTV.
"It is a hard run, but then we are a very good team as well so it will be hard for others who play against us as well".
"It was a very good start, we should have been 3-0 up and we created our own downfall really", said Solskjaer. We can control what we do on the pitch, performance wise, and we have played well enough tonight, creating chances to win the game.

'Of course, it was against a great team, but we want to do our job and we are very happy with the result'. "I was very, very pleased with him", he said.
Solskjaer was clearly disappointed in his post-match comments to the media, but the boss had plenty of positive things to say about McTominay's display in the Midlands and recent form.
"It was probably a bad decision [from Young] but in the heat of the moment he reached the ball but it was just a little bit too high".
"Everyone can see they've got significant restructuring work to do to the squad as it stands to make it competitive, never mind taking away two of the more important players on top of that".
"I don't think there is any kickback or re-setting".
