Bruno Fernandes’ free kick helped fire Man United pass Liverpool during the FA Cup clash yesterday
Man United enjoyed a hard-worked win over Liverpool last night with an intelligent free kick from Bruno Fernandes firing the Red Devils ahead of the Reds.
Mohamed Salah opened the score line early when Man United defense failed to hold off the Egyptian who then deposited the ball into Henderson’s goal post.
The home team responded with two sound goals from Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford, turning the game on Jurgen Klopp’s men.

It was a very strong tie as the 4th goal of the game came from Mo’ Salah who turned Liverpool’s second shot on target into their second goal after United had done same.
But after the 76th minute, things had turned against Liverpool after a brilliant free kick from Bruno Fernandes was channeled towards the far corner of the goal post.
Alisson found it very difficult stopping the goal as Bruno ran towards the corner sliding in celebration of his super fine winner free kick.
Meanwhile, the Portuguese did not forget to return credits to the very player who told him how to beat Liverpool’s goalkeeper on the free kick.
Speaking after the game, Bruno spoke of Edinson Cavani as the originator of the idea that fired Man United into the next stage of the FA Cup where they would be battling West Ham United.
“I work a lot on these kind of goals, free-kicks,” he told BBC Sport.
“I tried, this one was good. Before the free-kick, Edinson Cavani told me, ‘Try the hard one on the side of the keeper’. I tried it and it went well.”
