Manchester United dumped out of FA Cup

Manchester United

Manchester United was dumped out of the FA Cup against Chelsea with a 3-1 defeat on Sunday. Two critical mistakes from David De Gea and an own goal from Harry Maguire caused the saddening defeat. 

In the first-half stoppage time, Olivier Giroud pushed Chelsea ahead and any hopes of returning were defeated when Mason Mount’s error let another shot in. 

United had better results when they faced Tottenham in Leicester. The team is now looking forward to another victory against Leicester in the Premier LEague season’s final day. Eric Bailly suffered two head clashes and was stretched off before half-time. Despite lengthy treatment on the pitch, Eric Bailly was taken off wearing a neck brace and reports confirmed he was taken to a local hospital.
