Teams make a bunch of changes even between league games sometimes. Like Man City and that's why they can field a "second team" riddled with first team experience. Arsenal started with 8 'first team' established outfield players, plus another 5 on the bench making 13. Liverpool had 5. That's more than two first teamers to one.

I think you're being a bit unkind. Perhaps you were actually a bit worried by Arsenal having so many regulars involved.

Arsenal's 11 was far closer to their first team than Liverpool's and when you look at the benches and see five regulars for Arsenal and none (other than Adrian) for Liverpool, you should be very happy.

Two goals behind twice and they came back...then won a tense shoot-out. Nothing but good and they're probably a year better than they were a day ago.
I wasn't worried at all, whilst I don't like losing I wouldn't have been upset by going out of the cup tonight, the only issue would've been Arsenal fans popping up all over YouTube going on about it. I honestly feel the passing accuracy was terrible and the keepers should've done better with most of the goals. Milner gave the ball away for Arsenal's 4th and just stood still rather than running back to the goal to try and recover. Ox was poor for most of the match as was Origi. The only person that impressed me was Jones when he came on, everyone else just seemed sloppy. I'm hoping they'll do better when slowly introduced to the first team one by one when they can be carried a bit more.

I started to watch the football last night Liverpool when they announced the teams i watched till Chelsea started when they announced the teams i switch off and went to bed. Substandard football is insulting and unfair on the paying supporter.I for one do not watch.

I watch substandard football each week and I pay for it. Well it's a DAZN subscription. Maybe in your case our famous chant is right "Come to see United You've Only come to see United"

as you allude to Citeh has 23 first team regulars not 11..... it's called rotation... what was more significant was an 18 year old and a 19 year old played, both local lads and lifelong Citeh fans and that was good to see. Tommy Doyle's grandfathers were both Citeh players....

Citeh has 2 RB, 3 LB, 3 CB, 2 holding MF, 11 MF, 2 CF who are first team regulars...and they rotate regularly..

United need to put out their full strength side through to the final now - if we even get there.

A trophy would be something to build on, even if it is the mickey-mouse cup.

I can't be the only one never to have seen Bostock's Cup until tonight.

Watch it and laugh your heads off.
