MANCHESTER UNITED ADVANCE TO F.A CUP SEMI FINAL – Man United beat Liverpool 4-3 at Old Trafford

Amad Diallo scored in stoppage-time of extra-time as Manchester United won 4-3 against Liverpool in one of the greatest FA Cup ties ever. Liverpool were minutes away from progressing from the Old Trafford quarter-final on two occasions – leading going into the 87th minute of normal time and again in the 112th minute of extra-time – only for Erik ten Hag’s team to conjure up two equalisers and an astonishing winner.

Diallo was sent off for a second bookable offence after his goal celebration to add to the incredible drama, but that was in nobody’s thoughts at the final whistle, the United support wild with delight inside the Theatre of Dreams. Jurgen Klopp and his players were in shock.

Scott McTominay had put United in front early on amid a blistering start but goals from Alexis Mac Allister and Mohamed Salah put Liverpool in front before the break. Klopp’s side wasted many chances to win it before Antony equalised against the run of play.

In extra-time, substitute Harvey Elliott put Liverpool in control again only for Marcus Rashford to seemingly send the game to penalties – but for one last twist. Diallo, just 21, finally decided it, sending United to a Wembley semi-final against Coventry.
