Five Things We Learned: Manchester United 3-0 Cambridge

1. The FA Cup is a superb chance for silverware

The draw has really opened up for United, with Arsenal and Liverpool being the other so called ‘bigger clubs’ left. With a trip to Preston next up, a spot in the quarter finals should be an absolute minimum.

2. Daley Blind is human

Blind has been our best summer signing in my opinion, but that horrific back pass in minute one could’ve cost United their spot in the cup this year. We’ll let him off with that one though because he has been superb in every other minute of football for the club.

3. James Wilson is a deadly finisher

Wilson once again heaped more pressure on Van Persie and Radamel Falcao by coming on and not only scoring, but terrorising the Cambridge defence with his pace. Big things are expected of this lad.

4. Di Maria is better central

Di Maria returned to the middle of the park today and it comes as no surprise that he was a much bigger threat. The more central he is the more time he’ll be on the ball and it makes perfect sense to utilise him as much as possible.

5. Ander Herrera must not be impressing in training

Once again Ander Herrera found himself out of the starting line-up, and I for the life of me cannot see why as every time he has played he has throughly impressed. Either Louis van Gaal just doesn’t like him and his style of play, or he isn’t doing enough in training to warrant selection.
