The 1-0 victory means United will face fierce rivals Liverpool for a place at Wembley.

And their lack of impetus in attack left Shearer feeling frustrated in the commentary box.

The former England star blasted Marcus Rashford for his body language and effort up front.

After the match, Shearer declared that it was the result that really mattered for United after such a dire performance.

Yet fans were drawn to the Newcastle icon referring to United as “we” in his post-match comments.

Shearer revealed yesterday how he had no regrets over snubbing the Red Devils twice as a player.

And that made supporters all the more surprised about his comments following the final whistle.

Shearer declared: “Well it’s not about how well we played, it’s how we get into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, and they’ve done that.


“Their name’s in the hat, the performance wasn’t great, they had to stick in there, they lacked quality at times.

“But Bruno Fernandes delivered with that ball and Casemiro’s got on the end of it, and that’s how they’re into the FA Cup quarter finals.

“Other than that, there’s not a lot to say about their performance tonight.”

One fan said: “Did Shearer just say ‘how we’ as in him and Man United?”

Another boomed: “Alan shearer saying ‘we’?”

One noted: “Shearer just called United ‘we’, go on lad.”

Another added: “How many times did Shearer say ‘we’ referring to United?”
