Outstanding results in the second half

Reporting on the impact of the coronavirus on the sports world

Scott McTominay’s low goal in the first half of extra time was enough to give Manchester United a 1-0 win over West Ham, which secured their spot in the FA Cup quarter-finals. West Ham was injured at Old Trafford and lost two center-backs early in the second half when Angelo Ogbonna was sent off due to injury and his successor Issa Diop became one of the first players in English football to be substituted under the FA’s new concussion protocols Andriy Yarmolenko, who replaced the tired Mikhail Antonio entered also failed to make it to the hour when the Hammers struggled to hold their own against a wave of attacks from Manchester United

Most of the hosts crashed against the rocks of West Ham and found Lukasz Fabianski unbeatable in the rare cases The Pole skilfully saved from a header from Victor Lindelof and Marcus Rashford on the right foot because the injury-related visitors could not do much on the counter and ultimately only in the 112 Minute recorded a shot on goal, another half an hour extra was hardly cause for joy for neutrals

But as is so often the case, Manchester United looked different after the introduction of Bruno Fernandes, who teamed up with Anthony Martial in an invigorating arrow across the left flank that – via a composed Rashford streak – would end with McTominay’s only goal hammer the game home

Donny van de Beek: It hasn’t clicked for the first time recently for the former Ajax midfielder. To a natural extent: he was asked to stand up for Bruno Fernandes, United’s most important player, he was missing of sharpness, and his teammates didn’t quite seem to agree with his moves. The cause for concern is that his frequency of playtime may not improve after an ad like this one tonight. RATING: 4

Lukasz Fabianski: The 35-year-old might have expected to have more to do on the ball with Manchester United’s dominance, but when his excellent rearguard buckled up he was there to help them, quickly and easily to parry on his feet What danger was facing him? RATING: 8

Mason Greenwood: In a game that didn’t exactly match his skills, Greenwood was still impressed with his dedication to constantly pushing the problem.A pirouette that took him past Mark Noble was a case in point of his formidable form Ability to pull opponents towards you and then hit them. RATING: 7

In Martial, Mason Greenwood and Rashford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deployed three incisive strikers who can shoot through high lines in no time at all. The question would always be what would happen if the Red Devils couldn’t find room to attack

The answer was utterly overwhelming.It’s natural for any team to have trouble against a five- and four-player bench, of course, but the hosts didn’t seem to come up with any approaches that could knock them out or behind West Ham’s Alex Telles’ ability hitting a cross from a distance is impossible to miss, but Edinson Cavani – who only appeared in 86 Minute saw an action – is a far better candidate to take advantage of these supplies than Martial

Van De Beek can drift into rooms to make the next pass, but he’s had Fred and Nemanja Matic behind him, neither of whom are exactly known for line breaks so it was only a matter of time before Solskjaer got down to his all too familiar plan: getting Fernandes on the field and hoping he’ll do something In the manager’s defense, it mostly works

It was immediately clear that Fernandes could offer something that Van De Beek could not An outrageous flick of his right shoe found Greenwood in the room he so seldom occupied in the first 70 minutes of the game.His teammates were on No. The wavelength of 18 was like they hadn’t on his replacement and the Portuguese knew when they had to drift far and connect to Martial, who looked far more comfortable after Cavani’s introduction on the left

It was only natural that West Ham should choose not to risk Mikhail Antonio’s fitness, though their talisman striker may have helped in a year when the fifth-placed Premier League side has no reason Hasn’t Going For It To Win Silver Still, it’s been barely a week since Moyes decided not to spend any money he had available to sign a striker on the cut date He’s got to wonder if he made a mistake / p>

With ineligible Manchester United borrower Jesse Lingard and Said Benrahma on the bench, it fell to Andriy Yarmolenko to take the lead whether he could do that for a team in one game remains to be seen but it was clear that he was unsuitable for a West Ham team who had to be able to beat their opponents on the counter

With Antonio, Jarrod Bowen and Pablo Fornals players who can hold the ball up, win crosses and spin afterwards have Yarmolenko running through the canals, pushing with energy and wanting to pursue every half chance but just couldn’t be the striker, the West Needed Ham for a game where they had to clear their lines without the ball coming back on them

Of course, West Ham found it all the more difficult to build an approximate attack movement when their defenses lost first to Ogbonna and then to Diop The latter became one of the first concussion substitutes in English football after a head fight with Martial that made it easier when Yarmolenko made way for teen Ademipo Odubeko, who had come through the ranks at Old Trafford, shouldn’t be taken as a reflection on the Ukrainian but that the introduction of an 18 year old forced the entire team to take on the creative burden that they didn’t have before

Certainly Moyes himself was not enthusiastic about Odubeko’s performance and replaced Manuel Lanzini in the second half of extra time with substitute Benrahma, the man who won the No. Wearing a 9-shirt, looked a little more comfortable in central areas but missed one of the game’s best chances as he headed for Dean Henderson from eight yards away.It wasn’t a chance Antonio was going to miss
