Wolves and Man Utd need replay after goalless draw

Highlights: Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-0 Manchester United
Manchester United failed to have a shot on target in a domestic game for the first time since January 2015 as they played out a goalless FA Cup draw at Molineux.With United having a two-legged EFL Cup semi-final against Manchester City this month, the Old Trafford replay will take up their only spare January midweek without a game.For Wolves, it adds to a marathon season that has already reached 36 games.
In a largely disappointing rematch of last year's quarter-final, Marcus Rashford and Raul Jimenez both struck the woodwork in the second half.Rashford came close a minute after his introduction as a second-half substitute, when his shot looped off Wolves skipper Conor Coady.Jimenez's was all his own work as he raced down the byeline and then, completely lacking in support, surprised United keeper Sergio Romero by shooting from a virtually impossible angle, sending the ball skidding off the woodwork.
Wolves' long season stretching resources
Wolves, whose season started in July, gave a debut to 21-year-old striker Benny Ashley-Seal. He became the 26th player to start for Wolves during this campaign.In truth, the young Londoner did not sparkle and appeared to complain of feeling ill before he was replaced by Jimenez at the break.Wolves did create the best chance of the opening period, when a Pedro Neto corner was flicked on to Matt Doherty at the far post, only for Romero to make a fine reaction save.Romero repelled Neto with his feet when the Portuguese teenager collected Adama Traore's pass and created a space for a shot on the edge of the area after half-time, by which point the visitors were still to have a shot on target.They did have a penalty claim for a foul on Brandon Williams by Leander Dendocker, although the video assistant referee confirmed on-field official Paul Tierney's decision not to award itJuan Mata drifted a free-kick just wide and Rashford hit the bar when the ball looped up after Coady slid in to block 19 minutes from time, but Wolves keeper John Ruddy had still not made a save of note even then.

Fixture congestion compounded
The replay will be at Old Trafford between the next two rounds of Premier League fixtures and comes after both clubs - as with every other English professional club - had four matches to play over the festive period.For United, who like Wolves have reached the last 32 of the Europa League, it means that by the time these side play again in the league on 1 February, they will have played a minimum 18 games in 63 days - and even more if they do eventually reach the fourth round.
Man of the match - Raul Jimenez (Wolves)

Wolves stretch unbeaten run against United - the stats
Manchester United failed to have a single shot on target in this match, the second time they've done so in all competitions this season (also vs AZ in the Europa League).
Wolves are unbeaten in their past five matches against Manchester United in all competitions (W2 D3), their longest such streak against the Red Devils since a run of six between 1959-1962.
United failed to score for the first time in 14 meetings with Wolves in all competitions, since losing 1-0 in a Premier League match in January 2004.
Manchester United have been taken to an FA Cup third-round replay for the first time since 2012-13, when they eliminated West Ham at Old Trafford.
Wolves' Roman Saiss picked up his 11th card in all competitions this season (10 yellow, 1 red), more than any other Premier League player.
