MANCHESTER UNITED TO PLAY WEST HAM AFTER WIN OVER LIVERPOOL IN THE FA CUP

Jan, 25th 2021 – Manchester United will face Westham united in the fifth round of the FA Cup after a thrilling 3-2 win over Liverpool, Bruno Fernandes’ superb 78th-minute free-kick gave United victory with the match tied at two-all.

Liverpool led a fantastic contest through Mohamed Salah, who then equalized after Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford had struck for the hosts on either side of the break.

Salah’s effort was the first time Liverpool had been ahead at Old Trafford since January 2017, since when Liverpool have won both the Champions League and Premier League, a clear indication that whatever issues Jurgen Klopp is wrestling with at the moment, they are not insurmountable. 

The finish for the striker’s 18th goal of the season did not hint at a lack of confidence as he raced on to Roberto Firmino’s precise through ball, having escaped the attentions of Victor Lindelof, and lifted his shot beyond the reach of Dean Henderson.
