Picture: Manchester United trio named in FA Cup Team of the Week

Manchester United ensured their name would be in the FA Cup quarter-finals hat thanks to a 2-0 victory away at Huddersfield Town on Saturday evening.

The Red Devils won the fixture 2-0, with some brilliant individual performances help secure a hugely positive result. United are now favourites to go all the way in English football’s oldest trophy, following City’s shock exit to Wigan.

For some immense displays, three United players were included in WhoScored’s Fifth Round Best XI. Including two-goal hero, Romelu Lukaku.

Check out WhoScored’s Team of the Week here:

Let’s start at the back with Chris Smalling. The Englishman has struggled recently, but he put in a commanding display to keep Huddersfield, namely Steve Mounie at bay. It was a top-drawer performance and now he looks a shoe-in to play against Sevilla on Wednesday.

Nemanja Matic also earned a spot in the side with an 8.07 rating. His passing was neat, he won his fair share of challenges and overall, he looked pretty good.

Finally, we have the aforementioned Lukaku who scored two fantastic goals. He was absolutely brilliant from the get-go, and the 8.63 rating is something that he should be immensely proud of. More of the same please, eh Romelu?
