Folarin Balogun played 62 minutes at Old Trafford as Middlesbrough knocked Manchester United out of the Emirates FA Cup on penalties. Jadon Sancho gave the home side the lead after 25 minutes, before Matt Crooks equalised for Boro in the second half. Anthony Elanga missed the deciding penalty in a dramatic shoot-out that the Championship side won 8-7.

Matteo Guendouzi had a busy week, twice playing 90 minutes for Marseille. Our midfielder scored the opener in his side's 2-1 defeat to Lyon, heading home a Dimitri Payet corner at the near post. He then provided an assist as his side beat Angers 5-2, picking out Arkadiusz Milik with a well-timed through ball to spark his side's comeback after they trailed by two goals. Our midfielder's assist was his eighth in all competitions for Marseille.
