The ghost of Sanchez returns at his old haunt as Man United knocks Arsenal out of the FA Cup


Manchester United knocked Arsenal out of the FA Cup with a 3-1 victory at the Emirates in their fourth-round tie.

After Arsenal’s quick start seemed to catch Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side off guard, United stunned the Gunners on the break as Romelu Lukaku‘s wonderful through-ball took out three defenders to set up a sublime finish by Alexis Sanchez at his old haunt.

Just three minutes later and that lead was two as an almost identical attack saw Lukaku act playmaker again, this time setting up Jesse Lingard, who passed the ball delicately into the bottom corner.

Arsenal bounced back on the stroke of half-time after a burst of cute skill saw Aaron Ramsey weave his way into the box and cut-back to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for the simplest of tap-ins.

Mesut Ozil made a rare appearance from the bench, tempers flared, Laurent Koscielny was brought off with a grim head injury, but after the various twists it was another well-crafted counter-attack, finished by Anthony Martial, that put United out of reach and into the fifth round.
