Manchester united substitute Scot McTominay scored an extra time goal and the only goal at old Trafford on Tuesday night to send his side to FA quarter finals. United had labored for much of the evening as they tried to break West Ham stubborn defense and didn’t create enough chances though they were the better side and deserved their place in quarter finals. The win comes barely three days ago after a three goals draw against Everton in a game which many fans believed Manchester united could have won having a two goals lead at half time.
Speaking after the match Manchester united manager, Solskjear praised McTominay for his “authoritative” finishing. “Scott has really, really developed that part of his game this season. Of course we let him go into box more often, unleash him. You see that doesn’t mind being in those positions. He’s a very good striker of the ball and a very clinical finisher. As he was a forward or a striker in his young days, you see his authority when he gets a chance to finish” he said
In his after match conference, west ham manager, David Moyes who once coached Manchester United for ten months insisted his injury hit side deserved more and could have at least taken Manchester united to penalty kicks.
The FA cup quarter-final draw takes place on Thursday evening with Manchester united and Bournemouth having booked a place in the tie.
