Having lost all hopes of the Premier League title early on this campaign, Manchester United had set their eyes primarily on the FA Cup.
Much to the solace of the supporters, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is leading the Red Devils well in that competition, even going on to secure a spot in the semifinals with their 2-1 victory against Norwich City on Sunday.
The Norwegian made eight changes to the squad, which affected the club’s performance as a bit of friction was apparent compared to their previous Premier League clash with Sheffield United.
Consequently, the match featured a deadlock at the 90th minute with either side failing to get ahead, which forced the fixture to extend to extra time.
It was Harry Maguire who then delivered the final blow to the opposition with a match-winning goal, as the game neared its climax. The club skipper subsequently earned the man of the match title for his performance both in the offence and defence.
Furthermore, Anthony Martial was responsible for the assist which was converted by the 27-year-old, and following the final whistle the former took to Twitter to congratulate his captain. Maguire then replied with a grateful message, appreciating Martial’s assist.
😂😂 Thanks mate, I appreciate the pass 👌💪

The supporters are excited to witness the solid relationship the duo has been maintaining, evident from the exchange of tweets off the pitch as well as balls on the pitch.
Moreover, the celebration following the goal attracted much more attention, in which the France international imitated the Englishman. The video has been circulating in various social media ever since the final whistle.

Nevertheless, having made it to the semifinals of the FA Cup, the Mancunians look forward to their next fixture where they face Brighton away from home on Wednesday.
