Manchester United clinched a thrilling 4-3 victory over Liverpool in the FA Cup quarter-finals at Old Trafford. Amad Diallo sealed the win with a dramatic goal in the last minute of extra time. However, his exuberant celebration led to a red card for the 21-year-old.

Diallo’s decisive strike, only his second for United since his debut in 2021, ensured United’s progression to the semi-finals, where they will face Coventry City.

Former heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury was in attendance, urging United to adopt an attacking approach, which paid off early on with Scott McTominay’s opener. 

Despite falling behind 2-1 by half-time, United fought back, with substitute Antony leveling the score late in regular time.

Marcus Rashford missed key opportunities, including a chance in extra time, but eventually contributed with a crucial goal to force the match into a nail-biting finish. Liverpool briefly regained the lead before Diallo’s heroics settled the thrilling encounter.

The victory marked a memorable chapter in United’s FA Cup campaign, captivating fans and securing their place in the semi-finals.
