Valencia took control of their Copa del Rey fifth-round tie with Osasuna, leaving Pamplona with a 2-0 win.

Mauricio Pellegrino's men already had the template for how to beat Los Rojillos, having got the better of them with a 1-0 Primera Division win at the weekend, and they followed the same pattern.

They had to wait until after the half-time break to move ahead, with Daniel Parejo scoring in the 47th minute, before talisman Roberto Soldado climbed off the bench to add a second which gives Los Che a handy cushion ahead of the return leg.

Parejo's goal was his first of the season at the 14th time of asking - while Soldado is no stranger to the back of the net, with his injury-time strike his 13th of the campaign already, but his first in the Copa.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
