FA Cup: United corrects an imbalanced situation, the fourth division team knocks out Lafia, Kompany happy twice | FA cup

Tonight’s FA Cup Final Eight provided the excitement and spectacle needed. The fourth division team Grimsby Town beat Southampton from Lavia, the second division team Burnley and Sheffield (at the expense of Tottenham) won with difficulty and Manchester United corrected an unbalanced situation. The quarter-final draw resulted in the Manchester City-Burnley label.

Young Garnacho saves the skin from United

After Benrahma opened the scoring at Old Trafford shortly after half-time with a brilliant finish, it seemed for a while that the in-form United side would certainly not win the FA Cup after the League Cup.

But the home team – spurred on by an impressive crowd – turned the tables. Casemiro’s equalizer was disallowed by VAR, after which United needed some help from Agewerd, who kicked a Fernandes corner into his own net to equalise.

Manchester still had more than 10 minutes to avoid extra time and they succeeded thanks to the young Argentine Garnacho, who capped his brilliant match with a score of 2-1. He gently turned the ball past the bewildered goalkeeper Areola from the 16th minute. Fred put the icing on the cake with a 3-1 lead in the last extra minute.

Kompany cheers in the 91st minute

Dreaming of their dream season under Vincent Kompany, Burnley are firmly at the top of the Second Division and are now also in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. Although it didn’t go smoothly against Third Division Fleetwood Town.

Burnley dominated, but did not see their dominance on the field rewarded by goals. In the first half, the visitors also fell by ten of them. But that didn’t make it any easier. Only in the absolute final match did Roberts assure the winning Kompany team: he scored beautifully with his heels.

And the evening got even better for Kompany after the draw: He linked up with mentor Pep Guardiola and Manchester City, the team where he spent a decade.

Roberts scores with the heel.

  1. 86′ – James McAtee continues through John Fleck
  2. 86′ – Yellow – Max Lowe
  3. 83′ – continues Pedro Burrow for Arnaut Danjuma
  4. 80′ – Goal – Aleamine Ndiaye (1-0)

  8. 66′ – Richarlison continues for Harry Kane
  9. 63′ – Ismaila Coulibaly continued for Sander Berg
  10. 63′ – continued George Baldock for Max Lowe
  11. 57′ – Yellow – Papi Sar
  12. 48′ – Yellow – George Baldock

Sheffield in the second division surprises Tottenham

Burnley’s rivals in the Championship, Sheffield United, also qualified for the next round after winning 1-0 against Tottenham.

In a mediocre game, Tottenham had the best chances to score, but it was Sheffield United who took the lead 10 minutes from time after a fine individual work from N’Diaye.

The visitors went looking for the tie, but they couldn’t find it anymore. Serious setback in the FA Open Cup. Only two real teams remain in the last eight. It is already the fourth consecutive year that Tottenham have been knocked out in the last 16.

  1. 45 + 2′ – Penalty – Javan Holohan (0-1)
  2. 33′ – Yellow – Alex Hunt
  1. 87′ – Moussa Djenepo continued for Dominic Ballard
  2. 83′ – continued John McAtee by Evan Khoury
  3. 74′ – continued Alex Hunt by Brian Morris
  4. 74′ – Harry Clifton continued by Otis Khan
  5. 68′ – Adam Armstrong continued via Joe Aribo
  6. 68′ – Continued Sico Mara by Theo Walcott
  7. 67′ – continued Danilo Orci by Ryan Taylor
  8. 66′ – Goal – Doug Kalita Carr (1-2)
  9. 60′ – continued Romeo Lavia by James Ward-Prowse
  10. 60′ – continued Mislav Ursic by Samuel Idozi
  11. 51′ – Penalty – Javan Holohan (0-2)
  12. 50′ – Yellow – Duje Caleta-Car

Southampton (Lavia) lands at home to the fourth division team

The biggest surprise of the evening was Southampton’s exit. Romeo Lafia’s side, who were allowed to play 60 minutes, surprisingly lost 1-2 to Fourth Division side Grimsby Town.

Southampton seemed to be in control of the game until Lianko hit the ball with his hand in the penalty area before the end of the first half. After a long doubt, the ball went to the point with the instructions of the video assistant referee. Gavan Holohan kept his calm.

Shortly after the break, Grimsby were awarded another penalty after a foul by Kalita Carr. Never miss Holohan again. Kalita Carr corrected his mistake moments later after a corner kick and thus brought back the tension.

In the last stage, Theo Walcott was able to properly hold the banners, but the video assistant referee denied the goal.
