Manchester United are now through to the FA Cup quarter-finals after having beating Chelsea decisively tonight 2-0. The scoring from United came via midfielders Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba. Monday night also saw United learn their opponent and destination for the next round.

They’ll head to the West Midlands to take on the Wolverhampton Wanderers. Full list is below:

The two Manchester clubs will separated in the draw, potentially paving the way for a Manchester derby final. City are the hands down favorite in the field while Millwall, the only side not in the top flight, are the longest of the long shots.

After the win tonight, Herrera gave a shout out to substitute players who in his view came off the bench and made big contributions.

“I think it was a fantastic game,” Herrera said to the BBC after the game.

“When you play with these kind of players you can make that run [for the goal] you know you’re going to get the ball, but I would also like to speak about Alexis (Sanchez), Andreas (Pereira) and Scott (McTominay) the way they came into the game. And a world-class player like Alexis.”

“The way he fought, this is Manchester United and it is what you want.”


Big game for Sanchez; especially given all the headlines he made coming into this one. Alexis lifted the lid on what life was like for the players under Mourinho and how he feels disappointed by the fact that he hasn’t been able to bring more joy to United.

Finally, a new development in the David de Gea contract extension saga? Maybe. Sky Sports News has more:

“United have been surprised at reports they rejected wage demands of £350,000-per-week, as Sky Sports News understands they would be prepared to pay that amount, but agent demands may be driving the price higher still.”
