Nacho Monreal scored the opening goal at Old Trafford and as well as giving his team the lead, his strike also provided an excuse for people to remark how much like Peter Crouch he looks.

The Arsenal defender might not be quite as tall as the Stoke City striker, but there is an uncanny likeness between the two - something that even Crouch can't deny.

With Monreal becoming one of the top trending topics on Twitter following his 25th minute goal against Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter-final tie, Crouch joined in by tweeting: "I can't deny this monreal comparison much longer"


Whilst the pair look alike, Monreal opted not to steal Crouch's famous 'robot' goal celebration after finding the back of the net. Thankfully.
