Mitrovic ‘streets ahead of Weghorst’ as Man Utd fans beg for red-carded scorer

Manchester United fans have insisted Aleksandar Mitrovic is twice the player that Wout Weghorst is as the Red Devils dumped Fulham out of the FA Cup.

Mitrovic looked like he'd sent the Cottages into the semi-finals of the FA Cup when he put Fulham ahead. And United fans were clambering for his signature as Weghorst continued to fluff his lines in front of goal.

However, Mitrovic was soon at the centre of controversy when he was one of three Fulham stars sent off in a minute as Erik ten Hag's side spun the game on its head.

One fan tweeted: "Bring Mitrovic to OT on the cheap in Weghorst’s squad role. Need that Rooney hot head again. Machine CF too!"

"Mitrovic has won more headers in this game than Weghorst has this entire season," a second added. While a third tweeted: "Weghorst… I hope you’re taking note from Mitrovic!"

"Imagine if we actually had funds in January and signed Mitrovic and not Weghorst…low-key would suit us," a fourth added. While a fifth added: "Mitrovic is who Weghorst thinks he is!"

Despite dominating the United defence all day and being denied by David de Gea countless times, Mitrovic's attempts were in vain, and after he was sent off United converted a penalty and then took the lead minutes later through the January addition Marcel Sabitzer.

Bruno Fernades doubled up for the afternoon to send United to Wembley – and they will now face Brighton.
