Harry Maguire struck a 118th-minute winner to hand Manchester United a 2-1 extra-time victory over 10-man Norwich City to advance to the FA Cup semi-finals.
The England centre-back popped up with a last-gasp effort after Norwich – reduced to 10 men when Timm Klose was dismissed late in normal time – had cancelled out Odion Ighalo’s opener courtesy of a brilliant strike from Todd Cantwell.
Ole Solskjaer made eight changes to the side that beat Sheffield United 3-0 at Old Trafford, with only Maguire, Luke Shaw and Bruno Fernandes retaining their place in the lineup.
Premier League winners Liverpool will be given a guard of honour by deposed champions Manchester City when the two sides clash on Thursday, Pep Guardiola has confirmed.
The Reds finally sealed their first domestic league title for 30 years on Thursday evening after Wednesday’s thumping 4-0 home victory over Crystal Palace on Merseyside was followed 24 hours later by a 2-1 loss for second-placed City away at Chelsea.
That combination of results means that Liverpool cannot now be mathematically caught at the Premier League summit this season, with Jurgen Klopp’s side 23 points ahead of their closest rivals with only seven matches left to play in 2019-20.
It also removed the prospect of the reigning world and European champions potentially ending their three-decade wait for the title at the home of last season’s winners, with City set to host Liverpool on July 2 in a contest that will be played at Etihad Stadium after initial suggestions of a potential move to a neutral venue.
