JUST IN: Fernandes scores winner as Man United knock Liverpool out of FA cup

 

Substitute Bruno Fernandes scored the late winner as Manchester United eliminated Liverpool at the fourth round of FA cup at Old Trafford.

Mohammed Salah has put the visitors in from on eighteen minute with a wonder strike before Mason Greenwood cancelled the lead and brought the hosts level four minutes later.

Marcus Rashford scored a brilliant solo goad three minutes after the restart and Salah again scored a leveler for the Jurgen Klopp’s men ten minutes later.

United’s sensational midfielder, Fernandes who was starting the encounter on the bench was brought in place of Donny Van De Beek and the tactic proved productive as he scored from a freekick eight minutes from the regular time.

This showdown was a clear difference from what happened at Anfield six days ago, when the two teams played stalemate in the premier league.

United have now advanced to the next round of the tournament.

Klopp has reason to be concerned about as he has played three matches without a win and only drew one.
