Manchester United kept alive their hopes of winning the FA Cup by beating rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday. 

The hosts took the lead through Scott McTominay, before two quick goals by Alexis Mac Allister and Mohamed Salah turned the game on its head.

Liverpool looked to be heading for a semi-final at Wembley until Antony’s late goal drew the hosts level and send the tie to extra-time.

The Reds once again went ahead through Harvey Elliott, before Marcus Rashford then levelled things up.

With just seconds remaining and a penalty shoot out looming, substitute Amad Diallo completed a superb counter attack to roll United into the lead, before being shown a second yellow card for taking his shirt off.

The result ends Liverpool’s hopes of winning the quadruple this term, but United boss Erik ten Hag will be ecstatic at his side’s progression into the last four of the competition.

As reported by The Mirror, West Ham United are ready to reignite their interest in United defender Harry Maguire this summer.

Maguire remains a target for West Ham

The Hammers attempted to sign the Englishman last year but ultimately failed in their pursuit, but the report claims that they will make another bid to lure him to London when the window reopens this summer.

Maguire, 31, joined the Red Devils from Leicester City in 2019 for a then world record fee for a defender of £80 million.

The Englishman impressed initially at Old Trafford, but a dip in form lead to him eventually falling out of favour under Ten Hag.

Maguire has recently re-established himself as a regular for United, and continues to be selected by England manager Gareth Southgate.

In total he has made 189 appearances for United across all competitions, lifting the Carabao Cup last season.

The report claims that, having been priced out of a move for the central defender last year, West ham are preparing to move for Maguire once again knowing that he will soon enter into the final year of his current contract.

In January, Maguire will be able to sign a pre-contract agreement with any foreign club, and United could therefore look to offload him for a fee this summer instead of letting him leave as a free agent at the end of his deal.
