Full time and United advance into the next round. A hit and miss performance, some individuals sticking out more than others and there was some nice play on the ball at times but we were much better first half but backed off and sat deep in the second half, allowing Newcastle to attack a lot more. We defended well at times but you can tell the back four did struggle with the likes of Cisse and Ameobi. Cisse looked sharp when he came on, so this may benefit him and go on to score some goals in the coming weeks.
Anderson and Cleverley both scored some great goals and both stood out along with Fletcher, who I felt really controlled the game for us at times and helped dictate the play from the back. Glad for Cleverley getting his first goal for United and Anderson was our best attacking option when going forward. Rooney was decent and delivered some picture perfect long balls out to the wings. Hernandez was dangerous but should have scored and Welbeck got better as time went on. Keane I was very impressed with and Buttner did well defensively in the second half.
Overall, glad with the result.
