No shocks in the FA Cup although Crawley certainly gave Manchester United trouble at Old Trafford yesterday. The Sussex based club asked a lot of questions of Fergie’s 2nd string and came mightily close to taking them to a replay. Arsenal will be hoping not to fall victim to a giant killing themselves, as a tough away trip to Leyton Orient awaits them today.
In the papers this morning there have been a mixed bag of stories that includes Arsene Wenger issues transfer warning over his stars; Liverpool look to offer pair new deals, while Chelsea and Manchester United stars set to be hit with £2m tax demands.
