Manchester United are going back to Wembley.

Manchester United vs Brighton FA Cup Semi Final Review

Manchester United win but it was not an straightforward game, Brighton were the more dominating side although Man United had some good chances Brighton were the team holding possession.

It felt like a swinging match for example they had a good 15 minutes spell in the 2nd half then we had a period similar like that then, after that it was an end to end game however no team made a breakthrough in normal time.

Much was the same as it then went to extra time which teams had nearly moments but no team got the ball behind the line and so as a result of that it went to the dreaded penalty shootouts.

Now when I say these penalties were top class quality the penalty standard has really gone up since a few years ago when we played Real Madrid and we took a combined 17 penalty's and there was only 3 goals.

After 5 penalties each it was 5-5 and that continued for another round however, the vital point was when March stepped up and skied his penalty in row Z, the man who stepped up to put Manchester United in a final was of course it was written in the script Victor lindelof who Man United call the iceman and he didn't disappoint.

For the first time in the prestigious Fa cup competition there will be a Manchester derby final.

Player ratings:

De gea - (7) player well did decent with distribution and made some superb saves as well as one with good reflexes and reactions

Dalot - (6) had some good parts in the game but also got past by their wingers so in my opinion it was a average game for Dalot

Shaw - (7) did very well at cb and we were defensively solid with Shaw at CB didn't look like a LB was playing there.

Lindelof - (8) played well defensively and scored the winning penalty

Aaron Wan bissaka - (7) again had Mitoma on lockdown and as a result he didn't complete a single take on.

Casemiro - (7) did well vs a strong Brighton midfield who won the midfield battle also did well with him being on a yellow for the majority of the game.

Eriksen - (5.5) Struggled to get into the game and provide any dominance in the game.

Bruno - (6.5) had some good moments but didn't lead to a goal.

Rashford - (6) provided some promising moments but struggled even though he looked unfit and not match sharp at all

Martial - (7) did well to hold play up and bring others into the game but there was a lack of service to the striker

Antony - (6.5) was providing some threat throughout the game and tracked back which helped Dalot a lot

Fred - (6.5) gave us some domination into the game which helped us stop a few Brighton attacks.

Weghorst - (6) ran hard couldn't make an impact but scored a penalty when it mattered.

Sancho - (7) was promising and providing huge threats and scored a penalty in the penalty shootout.

Ten hag - (7) had a good tactical plan in which it stopped Brighton scoring and gave us a fighting chance of winning which in the end it did.
