Emirates FA Cup
Wembley Stadium, London, England
56′ Lukaku penalty saved
75′ Smalling (OG)
Thanks for joining us.
FT: So Man United march on, whilst the Toffees bow out.
FT: Martial impressed throughout the game and his energy proved to be the difference with his late winner.
FT: Everton played well in the second-half and Lukaku had a host of chances excluding his penalty with Cleverley firing wide from close-range.
FT: Everton will be unfortunate not to have won this game with Lukaku having his penalty saved by De Gea, although it shouldn’t have been a spot-kick in the first place.
FT: So the Red Devils ride their luck to march on into the FA Cup Final.

63′ All Everton now!!
62′ Chance!! Cleverley does well to send in a cross that finds Lukaku who heads over. Bešic was arriving late and possibly would have been better placed but there was no call to leave it from the Bosnian.

HT: So will Everton come back into this game or will Man United see the game through? Join us again to find out who will be in the FA Cup Final.
HT: Lingard had an earlier opportunity in the game after Rooney’s wonderful pass but he couldn’t beat Robles.
HT: Bešic has been struggling in the first-half and the Red Devils have exploited the Everton man with Martial doing-so on a handful of occasions including the goal.
HT: The scoreline could have been so different for Everton despite their lack of chances, when Lukaku was twice through on-goal, but his finishing was poor on both occasions and United took advantage with the goal.
HT: So Man United have the lead and deserve to be ahead with Martial proving to be too much for Bešic.

13′ Bešic concedes a corner.
