Shrewsbury vs Manchester United a few quick thoughts

  • A routine win in the end for Manchester United
  • Even though they had 14 players out injured it was still a relatively strong side on show
  • Disappointment for some fans no doubt as this means Louis Van Gaal stay in the job for at least another week
  • Chris Smalling’s deflected opener gave United on 37 Minutes and even from there you thought it was pretty much job done
  • With Juan Mata doubling the advantage just before half time it was the knockout blow for the League One outfit
  • Whether Mata’s goal should have stood is debatable due to the fact the a number of his team-mates were blocking the Shrewsbury Goalkeeper’s line of vision
  • Personally I would have given Offside for interfering with play but it seems as United get a bit of overdue fortune last night
  • That second before the break killed off any hopes that Shrewsbury may have of getting into the tie
  • The tie was wrapped well and truly by Jesse Lingard who made it 3-0 and a job well done as they eased into the Quarter Finals. His celebration still continues to annoy me
  • It was the potential final obstacle for Van Gaal but he has cleared this one and given himself at least some brief respite before the visit of Arsenal on Sunday
  • West Ham now await them in the next round of the Cup
