Following Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Sheffield United, with our only goal coming from an injury-time penalty, Marouane Fellaini has acknowledged that we struggle when faced with defensive teams.
It was difficult against a team like that who come to defend. We tried to create chances and we kept the ball well. We had patience and, in the end, we won and we are now ready for the next game. They defended with 10 players, which is always difficult, and they did well here but they didn’t create any chances and we deserved to win. Always in the Premier League and against lower league teams, the games are tough. There are often surprises, like you can see in some other games, but we are in the next round and we are happy. The FA Cup is a big competition in England and we went to the quarter-final last season. We want to do better this season and we have the quality and the players, so I hope we can do that.
