Man United advance to FA Cup semi-finals
Manchester United are through to the FA Cup semi-finals after a drama-filled 3-1 win over Fulham who had two players and manager Marco Silva sent off.
Fulham appeared to be heading for their first FA Cup semi-final appearance since 2002 after going 1-nil up in the early in the second half.
But United roared back while the Cottagers unravelled in a frenzied 40-second stretch midway through the second half that started with Willian’s red card for a handball after a VAR review.
A melee erupted and Fulham goal scorer Alexander Mitrovic, who appeared to shove the referee with his shoulder, and Silva were also shown red cards.
Once order was restored, Fernandes’s ensuing penalty put United on the scoreboard.
“They had an opportunity and they blew it,” former United captain Roy Keane said.
Shortly afterwards United went 2-nil up and then grabbed a third shortly before the final whistle.
United will meet play Brighton & Hove Albion – who ended fourth-tier Grimsby Town’s dream run in the cup with a 5-0 win in next month’s semi-finals at Wembley.
Sheffield United came from behind to dispatch Blackburn Rovers 3-2 and will play Manchester City in the last four.
Meanwhile Arsenal’s moved eight points clear of Manchester City in the Egnlish Premier League title race with a 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace.
