“Ole loves to confuse us” These Man United fans react as star man is dropped for the FA Cup clash with Liverpool

We all know that the biggest sides use the early rounds of the cups to pay a weakened side, but you can’t really do that when you’ve been drawn against one of your biggest rivals.

The intrigue surrounding the FA Cup draw between Man United and Liverpool was dampened by an utterly awful Premier League meeting last week, but hopefully they will play with less pressure today.

United have still gone with a strong side themselves, but the headline news here is Bruno Fernandes finally getting his rest as he drops to the bench:

It’s a monumental call from Solskjaer because Fernandes is clearly the best player in the team, but he has looked tired lately and he needed a rest so it probably needed to be done.

It also allows Donny van de Beek a chance to impress and Paul Pogba has been legitimately brilliant recently so they should still fancy their chances of winning, but it’s clear that the omission of Fernandes is the big talking point for the fans:
