    Manchester United stars still 'don't trust' Donny van de Beek on the ball, according to Mark Hughes.

    The 23-year-old started last night's game against West Ham but failed to make an impact before he was hauled off.

    After the match, Andy Townsend told talkSPORT: "We're not seeing it from Donny van de Beek, he looks a bit lost, he doesn't quite look like he understands where to go and where to run in his team."

    Club legend Hughes agreed as he added: "No, that's right.

    "You just sense… it looks like they don't trust him with the ball yet."

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer urged United to be 'more clinical' after the win over West Ham.

    The manager said: "I think we got about 15 to 17 shots in the end but we need to be more clinical.

    "We should've finished the game off earlier and finished in 90 minutes but sometimes it doesn't happen.

    "Especially in the second half, I thought we struggled. First half, we had two or three big moments."

    Mason Greenwood performed a Dimitar Berbatov-esque piece of skill to beat his defender during last night's FA Cup win.

    The Manchester United forward, 19, controlled the ball on his thigh as it dropped out of the sky just before half-time.

    Hammers skipper Mark Noble pressed him quickly, forcing Greenwood out towards the touchline.

    But despite seemingly having nowhere to go, the Red Devils star produced a sublime piece of trickery.

    The Red Devils have secured their place in the sixth round of the FA Cup after beating West Ham 1-0 at Old Trafford.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side were made to work for the win, as the Hammers took the 2016 champions to extra-time.

    And it was Scott McTominay who came up with the goal as he fired home low into the bottom corner after being picked out by Anthony Martial.

    Commenting on the midfielder's fine form, Solskjaer said: "Scott used to be a striker and I think he finishes with authority.

    "You see that he doesn't mind being in those positions. He just smashed the ball into the net."

    In other news, Man United’s Europa League tie with Real Sociedad next week will be played in Turin, Uefa have confirmed.

    Spanish government restriction on travel from the UK means the Basque side cannot host the last-32 first-leg tie.

    It will instead be played at the Juventus Stadium on Thursday February 18, kicking off at 5.55pm, with the second leg to be played at the Theatre of Dreams a week later.

    Meanwhile, the MEN report United are preparing to bring in a top defender in the summer.

    Those understood to be of interest include Real Madrid ace Raphael Varane, as well as RB Leipzig pair Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahima Konate.

    And finally, United will be without Paul Pogba for ‘a few weeks’ with a thigh injury.

    The Frenchman hobbled off in the 3-3 draw with Everton on Saturday and underwent scans on his injury the following day.

    Harry Maguire believes Man Utd should have scored more against West Ham during their 1-0 win.

    He told BBC Sport: "I thought the performance was good. We could have been a bit more clinical.

    "They had a spell but we dealt with it a lot better than at the weekend and we felt we got the win we deserved in end.

    "Last Saturday was tough – especially in the second half. We were so disappointed with conceding with the last kick.

    "We showed great spirit and a good mentality to come back and perform. We know it's a long season and tonight was perfect. It's important to get through."

    United have finally taken the lead and it's Scott McTominay with the goal!

    The midfielder has been in great form at Old Trafford recently and has added another goal to his tally for this season.

    Man Utd boss Casey Stoney has blasted the ‘utterly disgusting’ online racial abuse of striker Lauren James. 

    Stoney said: “It’s hard for me to comprehend sitting here as a white person in terms of actually being able to understand what she (Lauren) lives through every single day, what she has experienced since she’s grown up. 

    “I just genuinely cannot understand how we can abuse a 19-year-old because of the colour of their skin.

    "Just because they are known because they play football and have a profile, we go after them.

    “It’s disgusting, it’s utterly disgusting. I think the government and powers that be need to do so much more to govern these social media platforms. 

    “And we need to stand up, speak up and make it unacceptable that this happens."

    The second half has started, and West Ham know they must get out of second gear if they want to go through to the fifth round.

    Meanwhile United know they have to be more ruthless in the final third.

    No goals in the first half, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be happy from his side.

    They dominated the end of the break, and West Ham were happy the half finished when it did.

    But this is the FA Cup, and anything can happen in the second half.

    Man City ace Phil Foden has revealed the Manchester derby causes a huge divide in his household… because his father is a United fan.

    Speaking to Four Four Two, he said: "Obviously going to train with City made me a fan straight away.

    “I told my dad that I wanted to be a City fan and he replied, ‘OK’, but I could see in his face that he was a bit disappointed.

    "I think he saw it coming, though, once I was training with them.

    “When derby days came around, it was me and my mum supporting City, then my dad and my brother supporting United – arguing and debating about who was going to win.

    “But since I’ve been in City’s first team and it’s been me against United, I think I’m turning him slowly into a City fan – he’s not as interested in United as he used to be!”

    Paul Scholes believes David de Gea looks 'timid' amid concerns of his form.

    Speaking to Premier League Productions, Scholes said: "I think the goalkeeper could be becoming a bit of a problem.

    "I think that belief is going a little bit. He looks a little bit timid, he looks like he’s losing his presence."

    Everton secured a point at Old Trafford thanks to Dominic Calvert-Lewin's last-minute equaliser.

    Harry Maguire played the England striker onside, but de Gea reacted slowly to the danger and Scholes was not impressed.

    The 46-year-old said: "He didn’t really get in the face of Calvert-Lewin, he almost jumped out the way and made it a little bit easier for him than it should have been.

    "He possibly wouldn’t have saved it anyway but at least try, at least show a bit of braveness about it."

    Uefa is increasingly confident its planned Champions League revamp will be agreed by next month – despite opposition from leagues.

    A virtual meeting over the proposals with the 55 Uefa member associations found no significant issues.

    Uefa wants to replace the current group stage of the Champions League with a 36-team single table.

    Each side will play 10 opponents of varying strengths under the so-called “Swiss system”, with the top eight automatically qualifying for the knock-out stage and the teams between ninth and 24th playing off to join them.

    SunSport revealed in December the most controversial aspect of the proposals, with three of the four extra places being awarded via Uefa’s “coefficient” of previous European results.

    That could see up to six Prem sides in the competition when the restructure – due from 2024-25 – comes into effect.

    Juan Sebastian Veron has revealed he doesn't doesn’t joining Man Utd despite his expensive flop.

    He told FourFourTwo: "I signed for United because I had a passport issue in Italy and thought a change of scenery would be good for my mind.

    “Truth be told, I had a pessimistic view about playing in England, as I imagined that life there would be so different to what I was used to – the Latin lifestyle.

    “But I found an extraordinary club. You could hardly find one as well-organised, with so many people willing to help. I had two great years in Manchester, winning the Premier League title.

    "I’m still in touch with several of the guys I met: Dwight Yorke, Paul Scholes, Rio Ferdinand, Quinton Fortune, Wes Brown, John O’Shea.

    "I met Gary and Phil Neville again at some point, too.”

    Man Utd icon Phil Neville is closing in on a Brit double swoop at Inter Miami. 

    SunSport understands a deal to bring Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross will be completed this week. 

    And former Arsenal full-back Kieran Gibbs, 31, is in talks and looks set to follow Shawcross to MLS after deciding to quit West Brom.

    His contract at the Hawthorns expires at the end of the season and he’s keen to move to South Florida.

    Marcus Rashford has revealed his immediate unhappiness having captained Manchester United.

    Taking the armband for the first time in a defeat to Manchester City, the striker revealed that it took a while to appreciate his achievement.

    He told The Athletic: “At the time, I was just so angry, I hate losing to City.

    “I probably didn’t appreciate the moment as much as I should have. I can’t help that, it’s just the way I am.

    “But a few weeks later when you look back, it’s a moment of pride, you’re just very happy that you’ve managed to do such a thing for a club you’ve loved all your life. It’s a great feeling. I have the shirt hung up at home.”

    Gary Neville admits Manchester United are ‘not good enough’ to challenge for the title this season – but says they should challenge next year.

    He told his Sky Sports podcast: “They’re just not quite there in terms of winning the title, I never thought they were.

    “I never thought they were because the performances weren’t good enough and there was something missing.

    “I didn’t expect them to win the league at the start of the season, they’re not there yet. It’s disappointing but it’s not surprising. I think they’re on the right track.

    “I think it’s been clear over the last few weeks with the results, that form is not going to win you the title.”
