McTominay is good for everything

United qualify for the FA Cup quarter-finals in extra time. Van de Beek was the starter and Bruno Fernandes, substitute. Bournemouth also goes round.


A very easy way to see how important Manchester United's game is is to see if Van de Beek plays. It's tough but that's the way it is: the Dutchman only plays if Bruno is a substitute ... and Bruno is essential in the dynamics of the Red Devils, so when he rests, Van de Beek plays, like tonight against West Ham. Solskjaer had to do rotations in his team to give air to his squad and in the end he ended up playing 120 minutes, because it was not until the first half of extra time that McTominay opened the scoring. The Scotsman scored, his seventh of the season, which is said soon, after a good combination with Rashford.

Finally, the 1-0 qualification for the hosts to the FA Cup quarter-finals in a tie that was more enduring than they would have liked, especially because of the opportunities created. Manchester United could have closed the game earlier. He had two very clear chances that Fabianski avoided. The first, a Lindelöf header shot by the visiting goalkeeper with incredible reflexes. The second, from Rashford, going well at the junction. Fabianski was helped very well by Dawson, imperial, but as the end approached Solskjaer began to pull from the bench, that is, Bruno Fernandes, Cavani and McTominay, the starters, those who had to rest and those who came out to win the duel.

Woodgate's Bournemouth, to the quarterfinals

Bournemouth, sixth-placed in the Championship (second division) and coached by Jonathan Woodgate, eliminated Burnley, from the Premier, from the English Cup with a 2-0 win at Turf Moor Stadium. Woodgate's side is the first to reach the quarterfinals of the Cup, after beating an opponent more focused on ensuring permanence in the Premier than on progressing in this tournament. Bournemouth took advantage of their first scoring opportunity in the 21st minute to take the lead through Sam Surridge. He defended his income despite the attempts of the local team and sentenced the clash with two minutes remaining with a penalty transformed by Junior Stanislas.-EFE
