    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.

    MARC-ED DOWN

    Manchester United have issued a brief update on Marcus Rashford's injury sustained against Liverpool.

    Rashford headed straight down the tunnel four minutes from time after suffering a knee problem.

    And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “His knee was bothering him.[He'll have a] scan tomorrow and we’ll see where we are.”

    BRU THE MAN

    Bruno Fernandes stayed late in training practicing the wonder winner he hit in the FA Cup thriller with Liverpool.

    Fernandes bent home a 78th-minute free-kick soon after coming off the bench to set up a last-16 home tie with West Ham.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explained how Portugal attacking midfielder Fernandes once again went the extra mile in practice to get it right.

    The Norwegian said: "When you leave him out, like I had to do today, he stayed about 45 minutes after training yesterday shooting free-kicks. So I was quite confident he’d hit the target today.

    “He’s never happy with me when I tell him to go inside if he’s playing the day after, so he got some practice."

    DOUBLE TROUBLE

    The senior men’s team wasn’t the only Manchester United side to claim a win today.

    Leah Galton and Ella Toone struck in the second-half to earn the women’s side a 2-0 win at home against Birmingham.

    The victory sent United to the top of the WSL, three points clear of Chelsea, who have two games in hand.

    SCREAM OF THE KOP

    Mason Greenwood kept his cool to slot home despite Liverpool's Andy Robertson SCREAMING in his ear to try and put him off.

    Greenwood, 19, was played in by a stunning diagonal ball from team-mate Marcus Rashford during United's 3-2 FA Cup win at Old Trafford.

    After trapping the ball on his chest, Greenwood had to contend with an off-putting loud shout from retreating Scotland captain Robertson.

    With fans still barred amid the coronavirus pandemic, the former Hull man's unique tactics were clearly audible to viewers at home.

    HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

    That was Manchester United’s eighth FA Cup home win in a row – although the first on that run in which they have conceded a goal.

    Many are looking at the Red Devils impressive away record.

    But they have excelled at Old Trafford against Liverpool in recent years, now going eight games unbeaten in these derbies.

    That is four wins and four draws since a 3-0 loss in March 2014.

    RASH CONCERN

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has concerned Marcus Rashford suffered a knee injury in the win over Liverpool.

    The striker scored in the 3-2 victory and was seen limping at the final whistle.

    Solskjaer has since confirmed to BBC that Rashford’s knee was ‘bothering’ the player.

    He will have a scan tomorrow.

    OLE HAILS 'BRILLIANT' WIN

    We said how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sounded confident before the game… Well there's no shame in the Norwegian being delighted to beat Liverpool this evening.

    He told BBC: "Brilliant – you know when you go a goal, down the reaction of everyone was really good.

    "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.

    "He's never happy with me when I tell him to go inside after training when he's playing the next day so he got some practice yesterday.

    "Marcus [Rashford] has played up front, down the right and left and we felt if we could switch the ball early today we could attack them because Liverpool defend on the front foot so we have to be quick on the ball, we did that well."

    TELL ME MORE

    There is no Alex Telles today – despite the left-back talking up his hopes of starting ahead of the game.

    Luke Shaw continues in the line-up and new signing Telles credited his fellow full-back with a great run of form.

    He had told the club media: “I'm very prepared to play. I'm also very happy with the performances of Luke and his hard work.

    “I came here to play. And both me and Luke really develop together, both in training and games. I've played and have put in some good performances as well.

    “United benefit from this as well, United the club, because we win by having good players available. And if needed I'm here, ready, focused and prepared to play.

    “And once again I repeat that I'm really happy for Luke Shaw, his great performances and contributions.”
