MORNING RED DEVILS FANS
The Red Devils have secured their place in the sixth round of the FA Cup after beating West Ham 1-0 at Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were made to work for the win, as the Hammers took the 2016 champions to extra-time.
And it was Scott McTominay who came up with the goal as he fired home low into the bottom corner after being picked out by Anthony Martial.
Commenting on the midfielder’s fine form, Solskjaer said: “Scott used to be a striker and I think he finishes with authority.
“You see that he doesn’t mind being in those positions. He just smashed the ball into the net.”

It will instead be played at the Juventus Stadium on Thursday February 18, kicking off at 5.55pm, with the second leg to be played at the Theatre of Dreams a week later.
Meanwhile, the MEN report United are preparing to bring in a top defender in the summer.
