FA CUP Manchester City v Manchester United
Can United lose 3 in a row ?!
|08-01-2012, 07:22 PM||#6 (permalink)|
Manchester United goal: Bang! One chance, one goal. United have barely been in the City half but as soon as they are they make it count. Wayne Rooney spreads play wide to Antonio Valencia and then charges into the box to meet the winger's cross, his header crashing off the underside of the bar before falling inside the goal. Completely against the run of play, and completely clinical.

Robbie Savage on Vincent Kompany's dismissal at the Etihad Stadium: "He's won the ball. It was not malicious and he's not touched Nani. For me that is not a red card. The referee has got to use common sense. Should have been a yellow card at best."

I'm not entirely sure I agree with the last text. Yes City had more possession in the early stages, but they hadn't created much and United were 1-0 up before the red card came. However, there is no doubt the way the tide has been moving since. It is all United, and, as it stands, it is a case of how many the Red Devils win by. From City's point of view they need a serious re-group over the next 15 minutes.

Liverpool will host Manchester United at Anfield in the pick of the ties of the FA Cup fourth round.
The rivals, whose relationship has strained over Luis Suarez's ban for racially abusing Patrice Evra, meet over the weekend of 28 January.
QPR host Chelsea if they can overcome MK Dons in a replay, while Sunderland entertain neighbours Middlesbrough.
The fifth round will definitely include a League One team after Stevenage drew Notts County.
Wrexham, who drew 1-1 at Championship side Brighton on Saturday, will earn a home tie with Newcastle if they can win their replay.
Macclesfield could face more Premier League opposition in Swansea if they can win their replay at Bolton, after drawing 2-2 with Owen Coyle's side at Moss Rose.
Paolo di Canio's Swindon's reward for knocking Wigan out is a trip to either Nottingham Forest or Leicester, while Crawley head to Championship side Hull.
There could be as many as six all-Premier League ties, with Everton hosting Fulham, Norwich travelling to West Brom and Aston Villa awaiting Arsenal if the Gunners can get past Leeds on Monday night.
Suarez will be suspended for the match at Anfield but will be available after his eight-match ban when Liverpool head to Old Trafford in the Premier League on 11 February.
BEST OF ENEMIES

Liverpool and Manchester United have been drawn together in the FA Cup on 10 occasions, with United coming out on top seven times, including the finals in 1977 and 1996
Liverpool announced last week that they would not be appealing against the ban, and United boss Sir Alex Ferguson rejected suggestions that the two clubs should hold conciliatory talks over the situation.
United, who progressed with a 3-2 win over neighbours City on Sunday, knocked Liverpool out in the third round of last year's competition, winning 1-0 at Old Trafford in the first game of Kenny Dalglish's second spell in charge.
But Liverpool were victorious in the club's last FA Cup meeting at Anfield, with Peter Crouch's effort sealing a 1-0 win over United in the fourth round in 2006.
United striker Wayne Rooney, who scored twice in the victory over City and started his career at Everton, is relishing the short trip to Anfield.
He said on Twitter: "What a draw for (the) next round. Another big game. Can't wait for it already."
Liverpool midfielder Charlie Adam tweeted: "Great draw, Man United at home. That's the FA Cup."
Manchester United's former Liverpool striker Michael Owen said: "And people talk about United always getting lucky cup draws! It couldn't get much tougher. What a game to look forward to."
Sunderland manager Martin O'Neill is already looking forward to his first north-east derby at the Stadium of Light.
He told ITV: "It's a tough one but we're at home. I wonder what Lee Cattermole [who started his career at Middlesbrough] thinks."
FA Cup fourth round draw in full:
Brighton or Wrexham v Newcastle
Sunderland v Middlesbrough
Dagenham & Redbridge or Millwall v Southampton
Hull City v Crawley
MK Dons or QPR v Chelsea
West Brom v Norwich
Blackpool v Sheffield Wednesday
Arsenal or Leeds v Aston Villa
Stevenage v Notts County
Watford v Tottenham
Liverpool v Manchester United
Derby v Stoke

I always said the loser of this tie would win the league because of the extra games, but now united have a second chance to give it away at Liverpool.
Go for it, or give it away to concentrate on league form.
If they win at Liverpool, you watch, Chelsea away next round, that citeh money gets where it shouldnt.
