FA Cup: Liverpool Eliminated, United, City And Spurs In The Last 16

Must Read

The end for Liverpool. The club of the Mersey lost on the pitch of Brighton (2-1), this Sunday, during the round of 16 of the FA Cup. While Elliott (30th) opened the score for the Reds, Dunk (39th) quickly equalized for the Seagulls, who made the difference in the extra time by the attraction of the season, Mitoma, author of a sumptuous sequence (90th+2). A difficult season for Jürgen Klopp’s team.

Carried by its Brazilians, Manchester United has quietly defeated Reading (3-0) for the round of sixteen of the FA Cup and will see the eighth round. The Red Devils were dominant for a long time but were not able to score in the last meters of the game. They finally waited for the second half to make the nets tremble. First thanks to Casemiro, well served in depth by the Auriverde firebrand Antony (1-0, 54th). A few minutes later, the former Real Madrid player doubled the lead with a clean shot from outside the box (2-0, 58th). Finally, Fred added his name to the score sheet by scoring with a madjer following a quickly played corner (3-0, 67th).

The bill could have been more expensive. Firstly because Marcus Rashford had seen his goal cancelled after the intervention of the video in the first act (35th), but also and especially because the visitors had attracted the lightning by evolving in numerical inferiority with half an hour of the end of the game. Andy Carroll was late in his intervention on Eriksen and was given a second yellow card. A dismissal followed by a nice ovation from the Old Trafford fans, happy to see the former Liverpool player go back to the dressing room earlier than expected. The reduction of the score by Mbengue on a corner remains anecdotal (3-1, 72nd).

Tottenham ensures against Preston

Against Preston (3-0) in the round of 16 of the FA Cup, Tottenham held its position this Saturday. The Spurs took advantage of a double from Son (50th, 69th), then a goal from their rookie Danjuma (87th), decisive from his first appearance, to win. A logical victory that will be good for Antonio Conte’s men, who have just won their second game in all competitions.
