With the comeback defeating Fulham FC in a match played with more than 2 people, Man Utd club has officially reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup for the 2022/2023 season. And this also helps them rewrite history.
In the match that took place on March 19, Man Utd club had a comeback to defeat the away team Fulham with a score of 3-1. Aleksandar Mitrovic opened the scoring for Fulham, but then Bruno Fernandes scored a brace between Sabitzer’s technical goals to help MU get ahead.
With this victory, Ten Hag’s teachers and students participated in the semi-final against their opponent, Brighton. With the 31st FA Cup semi-final, MU officially set a record to become the club with the most FA Cup semi-finals in history, surpassing Arsenal’s old record of 30 times.
This is also the first time in 3 years that the Old Trafford team has reached an FA Cup semi-final. The last time United did this was in the 2019-20 season, when they lost to Chelsea, while their last title in this competition was under manager Louis van Gaal in 2016. .
With the semi-finals of the FA Cup in the 2022/2023 season, Man Utd is very close to the second championship trophy this season. In theory, they are the only team up to this point that still has a chance to win the treble.
However, the Red Devils’ chance of winning the English Premier League is relatively low when the gap between them and the top team Arsenal has increased to 19 points. And perhaps instead of thinking about this title, MU should focus more on the two FA Cup and Europa League arenas, where they have also reached the quarter-finals.
