Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Romain Saiss has been discussing their ‘important’ game against Manchester United this weekend.

The Birmingham Mail report that Saiss and co take on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Saturday evening.

Wolves are attempting to make the semi-finals of the competition for the first time since 1998 and give their fans a day out to remember at Wembley Stadium.

In total, the 28-year-old has made 16 Premier League appearances this campaign and played alongside Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker in a midfield three against Bristol City in the last round of the FA Cup.

Wolves have already frustrated the Red Devils this term, holding them to a 1-1 draw in September at Old Trafford.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have also earned results against Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham, and Saiss will be hopeful of another impressive outcome on Saturday.

The Moroccan said:

We have to switch on for this game now. It’s an important game for us to get the semi-final at Wembley. We play at home, and we have to be ready for this game. We’re going to prepare for this game all week now and try to do something great on Saturday.
