The build up to the game has been fantastic and the team was playing to win.
Romelu Lukaku unusually – not that I’m complaining – registered 2 assists; first for ex-gunner Alexis Sanchez who opened the scoring for the 4th round FA Cup in Emirates and second for England international Jesse Lingard.
It’s 8 wins from 8 games for the caretaker Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and it is clear that his presence, and the backroom staff, aren’t just bringing the “feel good factor” as they also bring tactical nuance too. They introduced Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial while we’re leading 2-1, a decision which was effective as the frenchman scored our third goal and effectively wins us the game against the most successful team in the cup.
Roll on FA Cup 5th round!
