Video – Man United highlights as Solskjaer tells fans ‘we really needed that result’

Scott McTominay’s extra-time goal finally saw off dogged West Ham as Manchester United beat the Hammers 1-0 in the FA Cup

McTominay fired home powerfully from Marcus Rashford’s tee-up seven minutes into the additional 30, after United had found themselves frustrated by the visitors for the opening 90, a result that moves them towards another final

It was a much needed win for the Red Devils, who have struggled for winning results in the Premier League as of late, and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer old BBC Sport that is what the club should be expecting, amid its longest barren run without a trophy since the 1980s.

“I felt we dominated. I thought we were in complete control of the first half,” he said. “In the second half, it became more of a game. When it’s only 1-0 and we are wasteful, anything can happen to us – we knew that from the last game [Everton]. It’s just about finishing the game off but we’re through. We’re in the hat and that’s what we wanted.

“I think we got about 15 to 17 shots in the end but we need to be more clinical. We should’ve finished the game off earlier and finished in 90 minutes but sometimes it doesn’t happen.

“We needed to have a good result and a good feeling today because we were low after the Everton game. It’s hard to take but they were really focused and did the job.

“Of course you want to win every game. We want to challenge and we want to go to the final. That’s what we’re here at Manchester United for. Sometimes you’re lucky with draws in the cup – we haven’t been that lucky – but obviously, we move another step closer to the final.”

It was not the best performance from the Red Devils, but they got the job done and thats all that matters.
