Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has stirred the anger in Manchester United fans after leaving Odion Ighalo out of the team's starting eleven as they fell 3-1 to Chelsea at the semifinal of the FA Cup. Chelsea had lost their last 3 games against Manchester United and came into the game with zeal
The blues were the better team in the first half as they had more of the ball possession.
Ole Gunnar Solksjaer started Daniel James and Rashford in attack, with Fernandes playing as a false striker. Eric Bailey's injury after a collision with Harry Maguire saw a change in Manchester United's set up and they soon conceded a goal in the extra time of a delayed first half
Odion Ighalo is Manchester United's top scorer in the FA cup with three goals but he was left on the bench along with Pogba and Mason Greenwood. To some fans, it was a disrespect from Ole to keep his top striker on the bench
Ighalo's addition to the team brought depth to Manchester United's attack but it was too late as Chelsea were already on course for an FA Cup final with Arsenal at Wembley.
