Pundit tells Manchester United they need to go all out for the FA Cup

Manchester United suffered a humiliating defeat on Wednesday night when they were stunned by Bristol City in the EFL Cup quarter-finals.

The Championship outfit headed into the clash on a four-game winning run and they managed to hold their own against Jose Mourinho’s side.

The deadlock was eventually broken at Ashton Gate, with Joe Bryan nudging the Robins ahead, but for less than 10 minutes as Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his first competitive goal of the season.

Many would have backed the Red Devils to push on and nab a winner, but it was Lee Johnson’s side who sealed victory.

Korey Smith made it 2-1 and sent Bristol City into the semi-finals of the competition thanks to a 93rd-minute goal.

Ray Wilkins, who spent five years playing for United during his career, believes that Mourinho’s side now only have one realistic chance of winning silverware this season.

United are fighting on three fronts in the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup, but Wilkins thinks that the North-West outfit are only capable of being victorious in one competition.

The 61-year-old told talkSPORT:

“As far as I’m concerned, the Premier League is done. United had the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Champions League, and you’d have to say the Champions League is a bit of a distance away at the moment. So, for me, it’s the FA Cup they’ve got to go all out for now.”

United are currently 11 points adrift of neighbours Manchester City in the title race.
