Marcus Rashford appeared as a starter in the match against AC Milan.  This England striker is expected to pose a big threat to the Rossoneri defense. However, Rashford actually failed to show his best performance and it even looked like the player had an injury.  Rashford was finally pulled out and replaced by Paul Pogba.

Thanks to his brilliant performance, Henderson managed to bring MU to win the match without conceding.  Henderson arguably deserves to be the Red Devils’ main goalkeeper. Manchester United must immediately forget the victory over AC Milan.  The reason is, the Red Devils have been waiting for another tough opponent in the near future. Manchester United will face Leicester City in Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final.  This match will take place at the King Power Stadium.

The victory over AC Milan will clearly be a valuable asset for the Red Devils squad to face Leicester.  The confidence of Bruno Fernandes and colleagues will of course increase. The defeat of Manchester United added to AC Milan’s suffering. The Rossoneri are still unable to get out of the negative period.

These results make Milan swallow two successive defeats in all competitions.  They previously lost 0-1 to Napoli in the Serie A. Thus, Milan can only win two wins in the last 10 matches in all competitions. Stefano Pioli has a tough task to get Milan to winning ways.
