Welcome to the Sligo Branch of the Manchester United Supporters Club, we will update you with all the latest news from the Sligo Branch of Manchester United Supporters Club.
Premier League: United may remain unbeaten away, now 21 games, but another 0-0 draw away at Crystal Palace on Wednesday night means it's 3 wins, 6 draws and 1 defeat in our last 10 games. That is a major rut and with City to away on Sunday it could get worse. Creating chances and scoring goals is the major concern, Matic had an effort well saved on 13 minutes which was our only shot on target, Rashford and a James header failed to find the target.
United remain1 point ahead of Leicester, we really need a draw between Liverpool & Chelsea.
FA Cup: United overcame West Ham to reach the FA Cup Quarter Finals, winning 1-0 after extra time. Making 6 changes to the starting XI United dominated the first half with Lindelof going closest with a header from a corner. The 2nd half was a more even affair and the heavywights were called upon from the bench but a breakthrough couldn't be secured. Scott McTominay slotted home the only goal of the game in the 7th minute of added time to see United progress.
United have been draw away to Leicester City in the FA Cup Quarter Final, which will be played on Sunday 21 March at 5pm.
Europa League: United drew 0-0 with Real Sociedad on Thursday 25 February in the 2nd leg, winning 4-0 on aggregate. Ole played a strong side but was able to make a few changes at half time and give lads abit of a rest. United overcame an early scare when James conceded a penalty only for the Sociedad player to miss it high and wide. While United did create a number of good chances the tie fizzled out and United won comfortably.
United will face AC Milan in the last 16 with the first leg at home on 11 March and the return trip to Milan on 18 March.
