Man United can’t wait, Ten Hag took this controversial decision on £86m star

The Ten Hag’s team had the first clear chance of the game with a far left footed shot by Antony dos Santos that hit the crossbar and showed the path that Manchester United would follow in the clash, with several chances to profit but the usual and worrying lack of effectiveness shown by the Red Devils in the season.

The Mancunian striker Marcus Rashford missed a new chance for the visitors and had a poor performance on the pitch as the main replacement for Rasmus Hojlund in the team, and Nottingham Forest menaced the Ten Hag’s defense with quick counter attacks that found Andre Onana with a solid performance during the game.

In fact, the lack of effectiveness in the final metters led the locals to go for the victory with several chances in the second half that were about to find a goal for the Tricky Trees, who worked really well in their attacks against United.

However, a late set piece gave the lead to the Red Devils, as the Brazilian veteran Casemiro headed to the net a good free kick taken by Bruno Fernandes in the 89th minute. The former Real Madrid player suffered a big blow in the action, and required medical aid on his head, but became the hero for Manchester United, who finally won the game and advanced to the next round of the FA Cup, where they’ll face Liverpool after the Reds won against Southampton in their game.
