Manchester City v Manchester United – Premier League – Etihad Stadium

Manchester United midfielder Fred was the subject of racist abuse after his side’s 3-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Leicester on Sunday.

Fred was at fault for Leicester’s opening goal as he gifted the ball to Kelechi Iheanacho in front of goal, with the Leicester striker rounding goalkeeper Dean Henderson to slot the ball home.

After the match, the 28-year-old’s Instagram account became the target of abuse from online trolls, with several of the comments racial in nature.

The Brazil international is one of several United players to be subjected to abuse in recent weeks.

Humanity and social media at its worst.

Yes I’m a black man and I live every day proud that I am.

No one, or no one comment, is going to make me feel any different.

So sorry if you were looking for a strong reaction, you’re just simply not going to get it here 👊🏾

— Marcus Rashford MBE (@MarcusRashford) January 30, 2021

Marcus Rashford posted a statement about comments directed at him in late January, while Anthony Martial and Axel Tuanzebe were also targeted.

Manchester United have previously condemned abuse directed at their players by “mindless idiots”.

“Manchester United has zero tolerance of any form of racism or discrimination and a long-standing commitment to campaigning against it through our All Red All Equal initiative,” a statement read.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side will play Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-finals

Manchester City will take on Chelsea and Leicester will meet Southampton in next month’s FA Cup semi-finals.

Pep Guardiola’s side, who sit top of the Premier League and are into the final and quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup and Champions League respectively, kept their unprecedented quadruple bid on course by winning 2-0 at Everton on Saturday.

City have won the FA Cup on six occasions, most recently in 2019, and they were paired with Chelsea in Sunday’s draw, a couple of hours after the Blues, eight-time winners, claimed a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United.

Leicester’s reward for their impressive 3-1 win over Manchester United at the King Power Stadium was a first FA Cup semi-final since the 1981-82 season and a clash with Southampton, whom they beat 9-0 last term.

The Foxes have never gone all the way, falling at the final hurdle in 1949, 1961, 1963 and 1969, and standing in their way of a fifth final are 1976 winners Saints, who claimed a 3-0 victory over neighbours Bournemouth on Saturday.

The semi-finals will be played at Wembley on the weekend of April 17 and 18.

The Wembley final, scheduled to be held on May 15, is set to be one of the events used as a pilot to test the large-scale return of spectators to UK venues.
