GOOD MORNING UNITED FANS
Bruno Fernandes came off the bench to fire Manchester United into the fifth round of the FA Cup last night.
A 3-2 epic with Liverpool saw the Portuguese star arrive to slam home a late free-kick after Mohamed Salah’s brace threatened extra-time.
The Egyptian scored first before Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford sent United towards the next round.
Edinson Cavani’s mistake was pounced upon by the Premier League champions, who couldn’t hold on despite Salah’s second.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said afterwards: “We played some really good stuff, good goals, we have to defend well against them and we managed to react well and of course towards the end there were some moments but we kept them away.
“Great goal, good free kick. When you leave him out like I did today, he stayed about 45 minutes after training yesterday shooting free kicks so I was pretty confident he could score one if he got the chance.”
However, Marcus Rashford is due for a scan later today after injuring his knee in the win.
West Ham travel to Old Trafford for the next round in the second week of February.
There was no Jesse Lingard’s in today’s Manchester United squad and the midfielder could soon leave the club.
According to ESPN, the decision to loan out Lingard is with the United board.
Solskjaer was said to be happy to keep the player but, after talks between the pair, a departure looks likely.
Newcastle, Tottenham, Sheffield United, West Ham and West Brom are named as keen on Lingard.
