Manchester United v Everton, FA Cup Semi-Final, April 19

  • Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson had probably more justification than Arsenal for fielding a weakened team, but even under those circumstances they could have done better than start with Foster, Rafael, Fabio, Welbeck, Macheda and Gibson all at the same time. Surely Nani, Scholes and possibly Berbatov could have been in the mix even with the packed schedule. It’s a Cup semi-final for God’s sake!
  • Everton refused to take the opportunity to dominate and played with fear. In the end they were lucky to get away with a penalty win.
