Manchester United and Aston Villa produced a borefest before the break and a classic cup thriller after the half-time oranges which featured six goals and ended with the effervescent substitute Alejandro Garnacho creating the Bruno Fernandes and Scott McTominay strikes that took Erik ten Hag’s team into the last 16, where they will face Burnley.
Robin Olsen was Villa’s culprit for the Fernandes goal that made it 3-2: the goalkeeper’s slipshod pass went straight to Garnacho and after Fernandes collected from the winger his effort deflected in off Tyrone Mings. Then, in added time, McTominay slid home from Garnacho’s sweetly flighted ball.
