1. A MIXED DAY FOR THE RESERVES
Ashley Young and Marcus Rashford made good cases for first choice on the rotation lists, with Darmian and Lingard proving time and time again that they deserve to wear the red shirt of Cardiff city rather than Manchester United.
2. HENRIKH MKHITARYAN
What a player, what an assist. Forgiven for his sloppy play and trying to over decorate
the clear cut chance served to him to steal d game in the first half with that fantastic assist for Rashford. Really staking a permanent claim for the number 10/Trequartista role.
Shaky start from the United captain, still not rendering that confidence to the fans that Eric Bailly or Phil Jones(when not on the operating table) offer.
4. PAUL SCHOLES' HEIR
Game after game, it appears the chosen heir to the great midfield throne of Sir Paul Scholes has been found . His name......PAUL POGBA . His Passes are simply 'Scholestic'.
5. SUPERSTARS SAVED THE DAY. Magnificent Scholestic pass from Pogba for the assist, ZLATANSTIC calm finish from Zlatan all within few minutes of coming on from the bench sent United to the quarter final of the FA cup
.......A difficult but vital win. The Manchester United 'Never-say-die' attitude is truly creeping back in.
Who deserves the man of the match award??
GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED.
