Following Manchester United’s 2-1 win against West Ham in the FA Cup, Tim Fosu-Mensah has praised the more experienced players in the team for giving confidence to the youngsters.
I think players like Michael Carrick, Daley Blind and Chris Smalling kept the team together in order to win this match. It was very important because they give confidence to everyone on the pitch.
It was a very big game and a great win. I’m happy we won this game and that we can go to Wembley for the semi-finals. It’s very special because it was a huge occasion. I’ve not really faced an atmosphere like that but I’m getting used to it more and more. It’s great for my development to obtain such experience.
The semi-final will be very special. It’s a very big match and a nice stadium so I’m looking forward to it.
In the dying moments, Cheikhou Kouyaté scored an equalising header, which would have forced the game to extra-time, only for it to be ruled out for offside.
David is one of the best goalkeepers in the world, maybe the best. It’s very good to have a goalkeeper like that in your team. He can save you points or save you in the cup. I saw Kouyate score and thought ‘No, no’ but then I saw the linesman’s flag so I was relieved it was offside.
