Yesterday evening, defending champion, Arsenal left the FA Cup at the stage of the Round of 16, dismissed by Southampton. This afternoon at Old Trafford, it was Manchester United’s turn to host Liverpool for a place in 8th in this FA Cup. In difficulty in the Premier League, where they have not won for five matches, the Reds found the opening by Mohamed Salah (0-1, 18th), aligned with Roberto Firmino and Curtis Jones at the forefront. But Manchester United reacted by Mason Greenwood, superbly served by Marcus Rashford (1-1, 26th). The Red Devils outrageously dominated the first act, but it was 1-1 at the break.
In the second half, it took Marcus Rashford just three minutes to put Manchester United ahead. Mason Greenwood returned the favor (2-1, 48th). But the Reds found the resources to react. Roberto Firmino offered his second assist of the evening to Mohamed Salah (2-2, 58th). In this lively match, it is the captain of the Red Devils, Bruno Fernandes who gave the Mancunians a definitive advantage, on a free kick (3-2, 68th). Edinson Cavani missed the opportunity to ensure wider success in the final. His head hit the post (88th). Manchester United goes to the round of 16 of the FA Cup, where he will meet West Ham. Liverpool are not taking their heads out of the water.
