Grit and fight in the FA Cup


Even though we were outplayed for a good length of the game, I am very happy with the effort put in by the players. They played for the shirt, even though they were poor in some parts of their game. Rashford rightfully got criticized for some of his actions on the pitch, nevertheless, he did put in a fight and a shift. Players throwing themselves into tackles raked up the spirit.

I would have preferred Bruno to not have started this game and Cavani on the bench. Instead, we went for safety and surety and got away with it. Rangnick’s substitutions were not convincing and I think he just got away. Defence in the absence of Maguire definitely way more compact.
