Pogba, Herrera Goals Send United to Quarters


Paul Pogba scored one and created another as Manchester United beat Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in their FA Cup fifth round tie.

United, who will face Wolves at Molineux in the quarter-final, were aggressive and clinical in the first half, going ahead through Ander Herrera’s header from Pogba’s superb left-wing cross (31), before Pogba scored a powerful header of his own from Marcus Rashford’s beauty of a delivery from the right (45).

And the visitors kept Chelsea at bay through periods of pressure in the second half with a gritty and professional display, meaning United bounced straight back from their first defeat under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for only their third win at Stamford Bridge in 23 attempts.
