Solskjaer's men qualified in the Champions League last eight after defeating Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 in the round of 16 second-leg encounter last week.
United beat Chelsea and Arsenal on their way to winning the 1999 FA Cup, an achievement matched in this year's competition already, and they face another tough game against Wolves at Molineux on Saturday evening in the quarter-finals.

Solskjaer's former Old Trafford team-mate Paul Scholes quit his first managerial role at Oldham this week, just 31 days after taking charge of the League Two club.
Phil Jones is back in contention after returning to full fitness but he hasn't played in over a month so the United boss might be reluctant to throw him straight in to action.
Tickets for the Wolves game are rarer than hens' teeth, and 4,500 travelling fans (14,500 season ticket holders applied for a ticket) will be fortunate enough to be at the game.
"He's probably got his reasons why he left".
