Manchester United qualified for the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Tuesday. Bruno Fernandes’ side (substitute) eliminated West Ham 1-0 at home in a game in which they largely dominated.
With ex-FC Porto Alex Telles in an ‘eleven’ with some changes from the usual, the Manchester team had more ball and shot a lot more than the opponent, but showed a certain passivity in the way they run the game left and hoped for goal at some point in time but that took time and United were forced to play extra time.
Until the quarterfinals! ??

After the 0-0 in the 90 minutes, McTominay, supported by Rashford, scored a goal in the eighth minute of extra time and calmed Bruno Fernandes’ team, who had already kicked in the 73rd minute.
The win was fair, but extra time could prove to be a harsh penalty for a team already overloaded with games.
