Erik ten Hag’s side produce late fight back to advance in FA Cup

Alejandro Garnacho inspired Man Utd to battle back from behind to beat West Ham to advance in the FA Cup a few days after they lifted the Carabao Cup.

Man Utd secured their first silverware since 2017 when they beat Newcastle 2-0 in the Carabao Cup final over the weekend.

Erik ten Hag’s immediate response to his players was to “get back to work” but they looked set to be brought back down to earth with a bump on Wednesday night as Said Benrahma fired West Ham ahead in the fifth round.

But Nayef Aguerd’s 77th-minute own goal sparked an impressive turnaround, with teenager Garnacho’s superb 90th-minute effort followed by a stoppage-time strike by Fred in a 3-1 triumph.

There was sense of relief among the delighted celebrations as Ten Hag’s men progressed from the fifth-round tie despite a shaky performance, keeping their hopes of a quadruple alive.
