Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was satisfied with the mentality of his players in the FA Cup win in the fifth round against West Ham United after “feeling unwell” after the Everton draw

An otherwise flat match included the first use of a concussion substitute – when Issa Diop was replaced by Ryan Fredericks at halftime after a head fight with Anthony Martial

And Solskjaer thought his players were the perfect answer to a late equalizer in Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Toffees

“We had to have a good result and feel today because we were low after the Everton game,” he said

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire said he felt the players were showing their strength of character to recover from the Everton result

“We showed great spirit and mentality to come back and perform We know it’s been a long season and tonight was perfect It’s important to get through”

On a bitterly cold night at Old Trafford, the hosts were closest to breaking the impasse in 90 minutes when Lukasz Fabianski reacted quickly to turn the ball on a post after Victor Lindelof Craig Dawson’s header was strong had deflected

But McTominay had the final say after a break that took them from one penalty area to another, Marcus Rashford shot on his 250th Appeared at United with the outside of his foot a delicate pass in McTominay’s path, and the Scottish midfielder’s first goal went deep into the net

This means that Manchester United have made it to the top eight for the seventh straight time when they attempted to take the trophy for the first time since 2016

Unlike during his own unfortunate eight months in charge, it is a ground on which he has not won with either Everton, Sunderland or West Ham

Before kick-off, the Scot had a good chat with current boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and no doubt wished he had been given the same time granted to the Norwegian trying to win a trophy after four straight defeats

Moyes’ hopes of stopping the hosts on their tracks have been hit hard by injuries that are now threatening to derail what has now been an excellent season

The sight of Angelo Ogbonna hobbling through the tunnel with his left boot removed after being entered by Martial did not look good, and the way Diop got out suggests that Moyes was for the The meeting with Sheffield United on Monday will do without two center-backs

With their only Orthodox striker, Michail Antonio, also missing, West Ham never really gained momentum and was not helped by another injury early in the second half – this time Antonio’s successor, Andriy Yarmolenko

Said Benrahma had the Hammers’ only attempt on target, but even if he had hit Dean Henderson with a close-range header at the end of overtime, it would almost certainly have been banned as offside

A £ 13Alex Telles, who has been signing in Porto for 6 days this summer, has been a mystery during his stint at Old Trafford

The Brazilian obviously has skill – and a vicious left foot – but persistence has escaped him and with Luke Shaw in the best shape of his career, Telles couldn’t force his way on Solskjaer’s team on a regular basis

It was a Telles corner that opened the chance for Fabianski to stay out, and it was his rapid run and cut that badly missed Donny van de Beek and drew a frustrated blow on a defender’s billboard

Telles had also blocked a heavy shot and then, as the game went into the final 10 minutes, he rolled over a superb cross that headed Martial wide

He’s also been decent at the defensive work he’s used for, and most importantly, showed great pace in avoiding a threat to the home goal when he came back to rob Jarrod Bowen after Yarmolenko sent his teammate through / p>

Telles didn’t show up for extra time when Solskjaer switched his two full-backs, but Telles could still be happy with his contribution

This game will have a place in football history after Diop became the sport’s first concussion replacement in England

The French defender himself was featured as a replacement after Ogbonna was sent off with an ankle injury when he was caught in the passage by Martial

Diop crashed into his compatriot when the couple stood up to fight for a header on a corner of West Ham

Both players were treated and moved on at halftime.After further investigation in the locker room, Diop was replaced with Fredericks, according to protocols adopted, and the visitors returned to a three man defense

“He was fine and I think he is fine,” Moyes said. “But he had a bump on his head and we didn’t want to take any chances
