Manchester United went deep into extra-time to defeat 10-man Norwich City 2-1 in the FA Cup. The Red Devils wouldn’t have been prepared for 120 minutes of football but they certainly did the task.

Sergio Romero – 6.1

Some solid saves from the Argentine keeper who couldn’t do much to stop Cantwell’s effort. This was the first time he has been beaten in the FA Cup this campaign.

Diogo Dalot – 7.7

Exceptional in his passing but could have been better in his crossing.

Eric Bailly – 6.3

Didn’t do much and was an easy choice to replace when extra time called for it.

Harry Maguire – 8.5

A strong contender for man of the match given that he practically functioned like a forward for the second half of extra time. Did a good job in keeping out Norwich’s efforts too.

Luke Shaw – 7.5

Nothing too fancy from the Englishman who kept up the stamina to keep making those flank runs.

Scott McTominay – 6.9

Lacked the spark that he ought to be displaying in order to convince Solskjaer to play him more often.

Fred – 6.5

Couldn’t deliver the punch he usually carries in midfield.

Juan Mata – 7.0

Was expected to do a lot more from the wing.

Bruno Fernande s- 8.3

A throughly exhaustive outing for the Portuguese star who was unlucky far too many times, unable to find the target despite seven attempts.

Jesse Lingard – 7.3

Was exciting in his dribbling but couldn’t muster decent finishing.

Odion Ighalo – 7.2

Decent performance and good effort with the opener but was unable to see enough of the ball to make a clinical difference.
