Just a bit reliant on Bruno playing well but anyway Norwich defended extremely well today and at least we're through.

Got there in the end.

Can't expect Bruno to save us every single match.

Much more tense than how it should have been but that was fun. Enjoyed it and we got the job done.

Norwich wouldn’t be bottom of the league if they defended like that most weeks.
Standard Krul game raising against us
Got a away with a really poor performance

Bruno wasn't great today, but feck me, I would rather have a guy play like that than ever see lingard and Mata again.

Relieved it didn't go to penalties. I think Krul would have won it for them there.

Never should have come to that but oh well, get in. No injuries and lots of match fitness is a plus too.

Poor from the manager and coaching staff. Ighalo, Martial, Rashford, Greenwood, Bruno and Pogba, yet mentally we collapse into lumping it to Maguire in the box. It worked today, but isn’t effective football long term. A bit of a wake up call in what’s needed for top 4.

Our first lot of subs compeltely messed us up. We had started the second half well.

Still think the ET will be good for fitness in the long run.

No matter how many players rest. Lingard and Mata shouldn’t play for us anymore.

No team is amazing every single game, bad day at the office and we still got the win.

Our poorest performance since the Burnley home defeat despite the victory. Oh well, can’t complain now that we are in the semifinals.

Frustrating game but we're through and that's all that matters. Need to be better on Tuesday.

Worried about how out of form all our attacking players bar Martial are in, Rashford and Greenwood have been let's be honest shit since the restart and things aren't exactly happening for Bruno either

Lesson: Stop wasting minutes on clowns like lingard. Cowardly performance from him.

Our 2nd string are quite a level below our first choice players. Without Pogba, Bruno and Rashford we still look quite poor, much like earlier in the season.

I wish OGS would make subs earlier. The big guns should have come on at half time. Did anyone really believe the combo of Mata and Lingard were going to improve after the break!?

I think Bruno might be rested for Brighton now, having played the whole 120 mins.

To be fair Bruno was gassed by the end. Shooting boots were massively off.

Horrible performance but we’re in the semis. Hope we go on to win this now.

We don't half make life hard for ourselves. Still, we are through and that's all that matters.
