Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford may have helped Manchester United progress to FA Cup quarter-finals with a 1-2 victory over Blackburn Rovers, but it was Marvin Emnes everyone was talking about during the game at Ewood Park.
And nope, he didn’t have to score a goal to get people’s attention.
The internet was raving about his performance, particularly when he helped Danny Graham score Blackburn’s only goal.

Emnes would be a quality signing for anyone in the premier league.— Matt Baker (@mjbaker25) February 19, 2017
Since when did Emnes become Ronaldinho's long lost brother?! 😯— Matthew (@Matt_Bxx) February 19, 2017
Even rival fans were showing their appreciation:
I'll always be a Man U fan, but there are just some people I have to support who aren't on our team, and Marvin Emnes is one of them.— Korok Queen 🍃 (@PetiteHistorian) February 19, 2017
